Old Dark House, The (Collector's Edition) (1932) [DVD - Region 1]

Weary travelers find shelter in a mysterious Welsh manor in this definitive "Old Dark House" thriller and cult movie favorite by horror pioneer James Whale.
Greeted with an animal-like grunt by the mansion's hideously scarred butler, three disoriented voyagers find themselves in the unwelcoming company of the psychotic Femm family, whose members include a religious fanatic obsessed with mortality and other matter of the sinful flesh, her browbeaten brother, and a scripture-quoting homicidal pyromaniac...all watched over by their androgynous, 102-year-old father. Relieving the story's overwhelming weirdness are Charles Laughton and a young Gloria Stuart as two confused visitors to the strange estate.
