Summary
Frankenstein director James Whale turned J.B. Priestley’s novel "Benighted" into this nerve-jangling tale that became the template for all spooky-house chillers to come. Stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. This atmospheric thriller features an unforgettable role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan. *"...there is a wealth of talent in this production... like Frankenstein, [it] had the advantage of being directed by James Whale, who again proves his ability." - Mordaunt Hall, **The New York Times***
