The Old Dark House (1932)

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

""They were all godless here. They used to bring their women here - brazen, lolling creatures in silks and satins. They filled the house with laughter and sin, laughter and sin. And if I ever went down among them, my own father and brothers - they would tell me to go away and pray, and I prayed - and left them with their lustful red and white women." James Whale really broke convention in 1932, when he directed this darkly humorous classic about an old creaky house and the characters within. W"

"An extremely weird film by the person who brought the two first Frankenstein films to the screen. Creepy, funny and twisted sexually, this film is a little slow but is beyond weird."

" Watch Film Now @ YouTube Interesting and I'm glad I made an effort to watch the film but over-all rather bland. Far too much talking and very little actually happening to ever hold any tension. "

"First viewing - July 8th Old-school Horror double-feature THIS is the movie I've wanted so badly to see all these years? What a disappointment.
