Doctor Mabuse (2013)

A little MABUSE 3 trivia for you this Monday...

DID YOU KNOW?

An idea for the 3rd film, way back in 2012, was that Christina Novello would come into possession of the Necronomican and would unleash an alien invasion heralded by the arrival of Wilbur Whatley upon Etiopomar.

Another idea was that the film would draw upon Fritz Lang's WOMAN IN THE MOON for inspiration.

At one point, the film revolved around the Three Mothers and Lady Levana and psychic investigator Thomas Carnacki solving a mystery which would involve Mabuse to a small degree.

The main story idea most frequently discussed involved Maria the Robot having disguised herself as a mortal, writing a book about Mabuse, and Fritz Lang making it into a movie, only to be haunted by Mabuse who would then take over Hitler's position in Germany.

Another suggested idea was a story taking place in an Orwellian dystopia of the future - hence AD 1984. No other details other than setting were developed.

Another epic screenplay entitled "Lohemann" was written for a major 'big budget' production, and revolved around Inspector Lohemann still on the hunt for Dr. Mabuse. Caligari and Irma Vep also made appearances in this screenplay.

Ansel H. Faraj @Hollinsworth Productions So is the short film The Job Interview included as bonus extra on the Dan Curtis Documentary from MPI on the DVD version? A few years ago fans got the impression this film would be included with it. Can you confirm that or tell us when and how it will be released? update? Thanks.
Hi I have an idea for a made tv movie with the idea of a long term series. It is a rough idea considering I have no background in the field. Would it be possible for you to take a look at it. And if interested put me in touch with someone to take the rough edges off of it?
When will The Job Interview be available? I've been waiting for so long - Thanks
RE: John Karlen and Christopher Pennock in your film "The Job Interview" from 2016 Dear Mr. Faraj When you can, would you please post an update here and on John Karlen's FB grp pg and your youtube channel as well, with any updated information you can provide about when your short short / film "The Job Interview" will be released and in what way will it be marketed? Will it be a stand alone film or will it include interviews with Mr. Karlen and Pennock and with other DS actors to lengthen it. Will it perhaps be part of or included into the new DS documentary that MPI has been working on ? It's been over a year and there are till several DS / Karlen fans wondering about the film. Thanks.
