Driving through a brutal thunderstorm in Wales, three travelers take refuge in an eerie house owned by the Femm family. Reluctantly admitted by Horace Femm (Ernest Thesiger), the three sit down to a strange dinner. Horace is neurotic; mute butler Morgan (Boris Karloff) is an alcoholic; and Horace's sister, Rebecca (Eva Moore), raves about chastity. When the storm brings in an industrialist and chorus girl Gladys DuCane Perkins (Lilian Bond), Morgan's lust and Rebecca's ire are ignited.

Starring:  Boris Karloff, Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton

Viewer Review:  "This is truly one of Universal's greatest unsung horror films, The Old Dark House is a unique blend of gothic setting, quirky characterizations, wicked black and dry humor, a great ensemble cast, and the workings of the mind of James Whale. Whale made the film the year after Frankenstein. THE OLD DARK HOUSE is an overlooked jewel of unusual quality: a sardonic parody of a famous theme, filled with bizarre camp humor that is well played, filmed and scripted. If you haven't seen it, you definitely should!  Highly recommended."
