It's a wildly varied group that takes shelter from a raging English storm in the forbidding mansion of the Femm family. Among the reluctant guests are stuffed-shirt Philip Waverton (Raymond Massey): Philip's sensitive wife Margaret (Gloria Stuart); their mutual friend, disillusioned war veteran Roger Penderell (Melvyn Douglas); vulgar self-made millionaire Sir William Porterhouse (Charles Laughton); and Porterhouse's no-better-than-she-ought-to-be lady friend Gladys DuCane (Lillian Bond).

It's a classic horror tale, the apotheosis of all "Old House" spooky films.
A great creeeeepy horror classic.
Richly atmospheric, beautifully crafted, creepy -- and most of all subversively funny and full of terrific dialogue.
