The Old Dark House
Directed by James Whale
Stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. This influential, fun thriller, directed by BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN's James Whale, features an unforgettable post-Frankenstein role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan.
In this classic chiller, stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric family.
Cast: Boris Karloff, Charles Laughton, Eva Moore, Gloria Stuart, Melvyn Douglas
On my must watch list at least once a year.
Insane! Loved every minute of it.
Fantastic! A great, simple plot with interesting and well drawn characters. Whale, the director, keeps it moving while Karloff and Charles Laughton give tremendous performances. It's eerie in it's atmosphere and a really fun horror movie to watch. I hope Shudder puts on more classic horror movies from the 30's and 40's. Classics like this need to ve preserved for their absolute quality.
