Description by OLDIES.com:
Inspired by the character made famous by director Fritz Lang, Doctor Mabuse returns in two new features -- Doctor Mabuse and Doctor Mabuse: Etiopomar, starring Jerry Lacy as Mabuse and written and directed by rising filmmaker Ansel Faraj.
In the psychological thriller Doctor Mabuse, the criminal mastermind plots a new reign of terror, with only Inspector Lohmann standing in the way. Infiltrating the demon's inner circle, Lohmann learns that the cost for defying Mabuse is a fate far worse than death.
The steampunk shocker Doctor Mabuse: Etiopomar uses six interwoven tales to tell the story of the villain's quest to establish a kingdom for his followers. To create what he calls his 'Etiopomar,' Mabuse enlists an army of automatons created by a mad scientist...who will be very familiar to fans of classic German cinema.
Jerry Lacy played multiple roles on the cult gothic soap opera Dark Shadows (1966-1971). He also essayed an uncanny impersonation of Humphrey Bogart in Woody Allen's Play It Again, Sam (1972). Starring alongside Lacy are his fellow Dark Shadows alumni Kathryn Leigh Scott and Lara Parker as witches Madame Von Harbou and Madame Carrozza, and Christopher Pennock as the villainous Professor Konratz. Character actor Linden Chiles (The Twilight Zone, James at 15) is resourceful Inspector Von Wenk, Nathan Wilson is Mabuse's nemesis Inspector Lohmann, Bahia Garrigan is femme fatale Christina Novello, Dane Corrigan is the insane Rotwang, and Kate Avery is the beautiful, but deadly, Maria.
Blending film noir, science fiction, comic book fantasy, and German Expressionism, these Doctor Mabuse films are unlike anything you've ever seen.
"Ansel Faraj has created a haunting netherworld reminiscent of the glory days of German Expressionism.." - David Elijah Nahmod, FANGORIA
"...dark and haunting handmade film... an intelligent, claustrophobic detective story of evil... " - Michael Culhane, FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND
