A group of stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of the highly eccentric, and potentially dangerous, Femm family. This well-performed, atmospheric thriller from the director of Frankenstein features the first starring horror role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler.
