The Black Sleep (Reginald Le Borg, 1956). Basil Rathbone invents a serum that replicates death; it’s a chance to operate on living brains. At one point in this slow but oddly satisfying movie, Rathbone is joined by Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., John Carradine, Akim Tamiroff, and Tor Johnson, all gathered under the same mansion roof. There’s also a secret passageway to a torture chamber/prison, accessible by moving a stone behind a roaring fireplace.
