During a huge storm, five travellers find themselves stranded in the Welsh mountains and are drawn towards a deserted house run by a sinister brother and sister and their mute butler (played by legendary horror star Boris Karloff). Forced to stay overnight, our heroes discover that the old, dark house contains a number of secrets, and they must keep their wits about them if they’re going to survive. James Whale, director of Frankenstein, gives us the ultimate haunted-house film: a hugely influential picture that uses macabre humour and things that go bump in the night to tell its creepy story. You can’t call yourself a horror fan until you’ve seen The Old Dark House.
