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.

A bad night inside a dark and stormy castle never appeared so gothic.
