The Old Dark House
Director: James Whale Run Time: 75 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1932
Starring: Boris Karloff, Charles Laughton, Eva Moore, Gloria Stuart, Melvyn Douglas, Raymond Massey
Frankenstein director James Whale turned J.B. Priestley’s novel “Benighted” into a nerve-jangling tale that became the template for all spooky-house chillers to come.
Stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. This atmospheric thriller features an unforgettable post-Frankenstein horror role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan. Also starring in early-career roles are Melvin Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey and Gloria Stuart of Titanic.
