Boris Karloff swings into ‘The Ape’ for Issaquah film series
January 8, 2013
The legendary horror actor Boris Karloff is in the lineup as the Issaquah Train Depot film series continues.
“The Ape” — a schlocky horror romp from 1940 — stars Karloff as a kindly uncle in a small town subjected to a circus ape’s reign of terror. The film came after Karloff rocketed to success as the title character in “Frankenstein” and then sequels “Bride of Frankenstein” and “Son of Frankenstein.”
The film plays at 7 p.m. Jan. 12 at the historic train depot, 50 Rainier Blvd. N.
