The Old Dark House

This was one of the most literate and visually striking horror films of the thirties. A classic mix of thrills, scares and laughs from 'Frankenstein' director James Whale in which six travellers seek refuge from a storm in a decrepit mansion in Wales, only to be frightened by the creepy, eccentric family living there (especially hideously scarred butler Boris Karloff). With Charles Laughton, Melvyn Douglas, Ernest Thesiger and Gloria Stuart.
