It could have come across as strictly a work-for-hire gig, but it displays enough Hitchcockery to show he wasn't as disengaged from the material as he would later claim he was.

Jamaica Inn, while no classic, seems undeserving of its reputation as a failure.

This lurid story of violence and brutality is lavishly staged.

Laughton is compelling from the first instant: His Pengallan is at least five of the seven deadly sins rolled into one, a cheerfully loathsome creature with wide-set eyebrows and a multitude of chins ...

Couched in pure silent German gothic
March 26, 2009
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.
March 27, 2008
A hammy eye-rolling and eye-catching weird performance by Laughton, waddling madly around in Wellingtons and a high hat.

Jamaica Inn is a fraud perpetrated with great names.
November 17, 2012
Mostly known as Hitchcock's last British fim before leaving for Hollywood, this period piece is weak, despite star performance from Charles Laughton.

March 20, 2012
By common consent, one of Alfred Hitchcock's poorest and least personal works, though it has some compensations.
June 24, 2006
The result is weird, but not wonderful.
March 25, 2006
Having set his own standards, Alfred Hitchcock must be judged by them; and, by them, his Jamaica Inn is merely journeyman melodrama.
November 1, 2004
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.
