Frankenstein director James Whale directed this classic dark comedy horror film, an adaptation of J.B. Priestley’s novel and stage play, Benighted. Seeking shelter from a storm, five stranded travellers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of the highly eccentric, and potentially dangerous, Femm family. Featuring iconic horror actor Boris Karloff as the disfigured butler Morgan, alongside Melvyn Douglas and Charles Laughton, The Old Dark House is a thrillingly atmospheric black-and-white delight.

Funny and blood-curdling by turns...a wondrously eccentric and subversive affair.
