Eureka Entertainment to release THE OLD DARK HOUSE, James Whale's atmospheric and entertaining horror starring Boris Karloff and Melvyn Douglas, in selected cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) from 27 April 2018 and as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 21 May 2018.
A group of weary travellers, a spooky mansion, and a madman on the loose upstairs! Director James Whale's (Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man) The Old Dark House is one of the best and most entertaining horror films of the 1930s. Dripping with atmosphere and packed to the brim with thrills, chills and gallows humour, it was considered lost for many years, but is now being presented from a stunning new 4K restoration.
Caught in a storm whilst journeying through a remote region of Wales, a group of travellers take refuge in a sinister mansion inhabited by the bizarre Femm family and their mute butler, Morgan (played by the iconic Boris Karloff, Frankenstein, The Mummy). Trying to make the best of a bad situation, the group settles in for the night, but the Femm family have a few skeletons in their closet, and one of them is on the loose...
With an incredible cast, including Melvyn Douglas (Hud, Twilight's Last Gleaming), Gloria Stuart (Titanic) and Charles Laughton (Witness for the Prosecution, Ruggles of Red Gap), The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Old Dark House in cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) and in a special Dual Format edition, the first time the film has been available on Blu-ray in the UK.
