The Old Dark House

Thursday, October 25 | 5:30 & 8 pm


Produced by Hollywood’s most prolific horror film studio and director, Universal Pictures and James Whale (both of Frankenstein fame), The Old Dark House has exerted a vast influence over subsequent generations of haunted house films. A group of stranded travelers stumbles upon a strange old house, where they soon find themselves at the mercy of an eccentric and potentially dangerous family. Starring an incredible cast that includes Melvin Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey, Gloria Stuart of Titanic, and Frankenstein’s Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan, The Old Dark House “mixes a quasi-realistic atmosphere…with high Hollywood Gothic: a tremendous thunderstorm, swirling roads, and the eerie house with its Chinese-box series of horrors.”


Director James Whale | 1932 | In English | 75 minutes | NR | DCP
