Another curious incursion of James Whale in the world of fantasy and horror films, Boris Karloff repeating his favorite player, with whom he had already filmed "Frankenstein" as it strives to specify producer with a sign in the prologue ... "This is the same actor," he says.

"The Old Dark House" goes more or less, as do a lot of movies. Its onset is over how promising, with the typi... read more

" Probably the most eccentric cast ever put together in a haunted house movie. The beautiful cinematography and the witty dialogue is other things that stick out. Not particularly scary but it plenty of charm. "

"More of an understated entry in the Universal Horror line-up, again by James Whale, in which the title tells you all you need to know. If you love classic horror films, make sure to see this one. Karloff again impresses as a deaf-mute muscle-man who stalks about the shadows of The Old Dark House. Also noteworthy is Ernest Thesiger, who played Dr. Pretorious in Bride of Frankenstein."
