Crew
Directed by James Whale


Newly Restored from the original negative held at the Library of Congress! FRANKENSTEIN director Whale turned J.B. Priestley’s novel "Benighted" into a 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 post-Frankenstein horror role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan. Also starring in early-career roles are Melvin Douglas, Charles Laughton, Raymond Massey and Gloria Stuart of TITANIC.

Reviews

"A masterly mixture of macabre humor and gripping suspense." - Time Out London

“The greatest of all horror films. Nothing better in this vein has ever been done, before or since.”-- Classics of the Horror Film
