The Old Dark House 10/14/17

The Cohen Group

It’s a genuine Universal horror classic that to my knowledge has never been available in a decent presentation — but The Cohen Group has come through with a nigh-perfect Blu-ray, both image and sound. Karloff is creepy, Gloria Stuart lovely, and Charles Laughton amusing, with Ernest Thesiger at his most delightfully fruity. Can I say ‘fruity?’ The potato lobby should be pleased, too. On Blu-ray from The Cohen Group.
