Mostly known as Hitchcock's last British fim before leaving for Hollywood, this period piece is weak, despite star performance from Charles Laughton.

By common consent, one of Alfred Hitchcock's poorest and least personal works, though it has some compensations.

Superb direction, excellent casting, expressive playing and fine production offset an uneven screenplay to make Jamaica Inn a gripping version of the Daphne du Maurier novel.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A hammy eye-rolling and eye-catching weird performance by Laughton, waddling madly around in Wellingtons and a high hat.

Having set his own standards, Alfred Hitchcock must be judged by them; and, by them, his Jamaica Inn is merely journeyman melodrama.

Erratic effort by master Hitchcock.

Considering the nature of the production, it's no wonder that Hitch never gets inside any of the characters

Hitchcock's final British film before leaving for the States and a second career is a disappointing and an uncharacteristic romantic melodrama.
