The Old Dark House
It’s old, it’s dark, it’s a house: it’s all our intrepid travellers have when a storm hits…
Dir James Whale
With Boris Karloff, Raymond Massey, Charles Laughton, Gloria Stuart
Five travellers find themselves stranded in the Welsh mountains during a huge storm and are drawn towards an old, deserted house run by a sinister brother and sister and their mute butler (Karloff). In a film considered lost for many years, James Whale uses macabre humour and things that go bump in the night to tell a very creepy story. You can’t call yourself a horror fan until you’ve seen The Old Dark House.
