I just can't get enough of Bela Lugosi gorilla movies, and 1932 freakout Murders in the Rue Morgue is one of the best. Here's the awesomely spine-tingling trailer for this tale of a mad doctor who kidnaps a woman, puts her in a cage, and transfuses her with the blood of an ape! In case you were wondering: Yes, there's just a wee bit of racial anxiety in this movie, but don't let that stop you from reveling in this tale of hybrid horrors and menacing Eastern European men. Plus apes! And women in chains! And syringes! Oh hell, I just love this movie. [Murders in the Rue Morgue via IMDB]

Oldest horror I've seen so far is The Cabinet Of Dr Caligeri. Awesome movie.
This looks like something I'd love to see too!
