The beautiful blond who goes upstairs to freshen up is the same old Rose from Titanic who drops the diamond into the ocean. The scene of the old woman of the house and a young “Rose” in front of the mirror talking about beauty and aging took my breath away.
This movie is funny,creepy, atmospheric, and a classic for a reason. The whole 'lamp' discussion on the stairs...I was on the floor. hahaha do check this out to see a classic thriller with some members of old Hollywood royalty.
The atmosphere of the movie is fantastic. Karloff's performance was great, and there's just something special that I love about black and white movies, definetly a great watch for classic horror lovers.
"Hey we just met! I love you and let's get married." A classic thriller from a bygone era. Worth your time!
