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

"16.11. Ärsyttävän nokkelalla sanailulla ja hollywoodmaisella elokuvaromantiikalla höystetty kummitustaloelokuva käyttää liikaa aikaa yleiseen pööpöilyyn ja liian vähän aikaa hyvään sekoiluun, joka alkaa vasta siinä vaiheessa, kun leffaa on jäljellä 25 minuuttia. Alkupuolisko on puuduttavaa seurattavaa, loppu oikein mainiota kohkausta. Lopputulos on näiden kahden summa ja erotus."

"Director James Whale is unparalleled for his masterful blending of camp and horror elements, and The Old Dark House could be his most skillfully sustained balancing act. What begins as an account of strangers seeking shelter from a storm at the Femm estate, trading acerbic barbs with the eccentric owners with a deftness that rivals the Marx Brothers, gradually turns into an atmospheric study in repression. Throughout, Whale pays special attention to the behavior of the film’s characters, as th"

" 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."
