A new 4K restoration of THE OLD DARK HOUSE opens TODAY in cinemas (UK & Ireland)
A new 4K restoration of The Old Dark House, the chilling lost classic from the director of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man & The Bride of Frankensteinis released in selected cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) today.
Frankenstein director James 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 travellers 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.
The release in UK & Ireland will be accompanied by a brand new trailer and specially commissioned poster artwork by Graham Humphreys, British illustrator and visual artist best known for producing publicity material for The Evil Dead and The Nightmare on Elm Street series’.
