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.


DVD Extras Include:

New 4K Restoration | Audio Commentary by Actor Gloria Stuart | Audio Commentary by James Whale Biographer James Curtis | Daughter of Frankenstein: A Conversation with Sara Karloff (1080p; 14:45) | Curtis Harrington Saves The Old Dark House (480i; 7:08) | Trailers

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