Director: James Whale, USA 1932, 72 mins, PG
“James Whale’s 1932 comedy-horror classic is wonderfully subversive … combines some genuinely grisly elements with scenes that could have slipped out of a P.G. Wodehouse comedy … funny and blood-curdling by turns.” Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
It is a dark and stormy night and three stranded travellers hope to find shelter in a gloomy and spooky mansion. Unfortunately they have stumbled upon the sinister Femm household and the tension mounts as the experience of spending a night with them unfolds in this horror-comedy classic from 1932.
“James Whale’s horror classic still chills … it is performed with tremendous gusto and theatrical dash.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
