Hello Pulp Friends

Starting this second half of the month with another little horror cult featuring two icons of the genre like Lugosi and Karloff: "THE BODY SNATCHER"!
Hope you guys enjoy :)

The Body Snatcher
USA, 1945
directed by Robert Wise
starring: Boris Karloff, Henry Daniell, Russell Wade, Bela Lugosi
A medical student works as an assistant for his doctor to pay for school. The student is disgusted when he finds that one of his jobs is to receive the corpses that the doctor uses for study, which are stolen from the graveyard by cabman John Gray. Eventually Gray starts to murder people to provide more bodies to the doctor. The student gets drawn into the wretched games of blackmailing: Gray has information he could reveal about the doctor’s involvement in the Burke and Hare trial.
