(William Castle, 1963)
Release date: 20 May 2024
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Tom Poston (Zotz!), Robert Morley (Theatre of Blood), Janette Scott (Paranoiac), Fenella Fielding (Carry On Screaming!), and Joyce Grenfell (Stage Fright) star in The Old Dark House, a riotously funny horror-comedy from director William Castle (The Tingler).

When American salesman Tom delivers a car to a remote Dartmoor mansion, he becomes stranded overnight along with the eccentric Femm family. As the feuding relatives begin to kill other off over their inheritance, Tom must survive until dawn.

A unique collaboration between William Castle and Hammer Film Productions, The Old Dark House is an inventive remake of the Universal horror classic.
