The Old Dark House (PG)

USA/1932/69mins/PG Dir: James Whale With: Boris Karloff, Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Lilian Bond, Gloria Stuart

Fresh off Frankenstein James Whale and Boris Karloff came to Wales to film an adaptation of J.B. Priestley's novel "Benighted". Stranded travelers stumble upon the Femm family estate, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. Fresh off Frankenstein, James Whale and Boris Karloff came to Wales to film this adaptation of J.B. Priestley's novel "Benighted", where Karloff delivers an unforgettable performance as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan and the film became the blueprint for spooky-house chillers.

 

"Stands as one of the great Universal fright flicks...Whale wrings potent suspense out of venturing into the shadows, and his technique still impresses"
