good movie to watch
I want to lend my voice to those calling for Shudder to add more old classic black & white horror. I would absolutely love to have access to a lot more movies like this. I just love the acting and the sets and the use of tension for scares. The most brilliant moment is when the man basically begs not to go upstairs.
Kick ass old, old school. Still excellent!
Oh wow ! I’m only 5 min in and I’m going to rewatch this because this dialogue is great!!!
A bad night inside a dark and stormy castle never appeared so gothic.
