The Master of Fright, the Goofy Detectives, and Death at Midnight

A killer gorilla is terrorizing the city. People are dying, one by one. Each murder victim gets a note from the gorilla 24 hours before being killed. Is the gorilla an escaped animal or a madman dressing as a gorilla? Who is killing people and disappearing without a trace.

As our adventure opens, the maid of the mansion is reading a bedtime story and getting ready for sleep. Silently a big, furry gorilla arm reaches into her room and pins a note to her shoulder. The frightened maid screams in horror and rushes from her room. She finally finds the butler, Peters, played by Bela Lugosi, the 1930’s master of fright.

The note pinned to the maid’s shoulder is a warning from the Gorilla that the owner of the mansion, Walter Stevens, played by Lionel Atwill, will die tomorrow at midnight. The owner of the mansion calls a detective agency for protection instead of calling the police. Three goofy numbskull detectives soon arrive to protect the owner of the mansion from the killer.

The next night, as midnight approaches, everyone in the mansion gathers in the library, locking all the doors and windows to protect themselves from the killer. Inside that room are the mansion owner, the three goofy detectives, the frightened maid, and the owner’s niece and her fiancĂ©. Everyone but the butler, Bela Lugosi.

The hands on the large grandfather clock approach midnight. The clock begins chiming the hour. One bell, two bells, three bells, until finally the clock chimes the twelfth time, and midnight is here. Suddenly the lights go out. Let the madness begin. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
