Crimes at the Dark House Reviews

  • Aug 19, 2016

    The performances are somewhat over the top, and there's a lot of direction for the audiences benefit in the script to ensure you keep up with the plot, but at the same time it's quite a funny comedy-horror for it. The body count is quite high too without it being gory at all.

    Simple plot, nothing real interesting. Common drama, with just a little edge of horror. Decent characters, okay pacing, and an overall well finish.

    One of Tod Slaughter's best films is this horror melodrama where he is excellent as a man who has taken another person's identity in order to claim an inheritance.

    The story is fast paced and fun, and the dialog is so (unintentionally?) humorous that one just has to laugh and smile even through the murders. Tod Slaughter is a wonderful dastardly old villain. For this kind of melodrama, it couldn't get much better than Crimes at the Dark House. Quite entertaining.

    This is one of Slaughter's best movies, if you're a fan you should see this. If you're not a fan, you can enjoy this good horror movie, it's suspenseful and well acted.

    Really good British classic, a fine horror film, very well acted and directed. It is well written and story is a really good one. Good cinematography. Spooky.
