Spooks Run Wild (1941) The boys are sent to a mountain camp. Stranded in a small rural town, they hear about a "monster killer" roaming the countryside. At night, they sneak out. Peewee is shot by a grave-digger, and they are forced to seek aid at an old mansion. The owner of the mansion (Lugosi), insists that the boys spend the night. After seeing PeeWee walk around the house in a trance, the boys decide that the man turned him into a zombie. They gang up on him and tie him up. The nurse at the boys camp (Dorothy Short) sets out to find the missing boys with Von Grosch (Dennis Moore), who has come to rid the town of the killer- or has he?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Policeman: [about the boys] They may be underprivileged, but they sure ain't underdeveloped.
  • Jeff Dixon: With all those boys here it should be about as quiet as the funhouse at Cony Island.
  • Danny: How can you read in the dark? Glimpy: What'd you say? Danny: I said how can you read in the dark? Glimpy: I went to night school.
  • Scruno: [the tobacco jar's moving] Now look Mr. tobacco jar, I don't smoke, I'm not bothering you, so you don't bother me, okay?
  • Danny: [looking at a trunk] You gonna open it? Muggs: Maybe it's one of those "Don't open 'til Christmas".
Movie Trivia:
  • Production notes indicate George Pembroke was cast as Dr. Von Grosch, but he was replaced by Dennis Moore.
  • The copyright expired and was not renewed, so the film fell into "public domain", meaning that virtually anyone could copy it and sell it without having to pay royalties. That's why there are so so many shoddy, badly cut, grainy copies of it on the market, put out mainly by companies that specialize in public-domain films.
