Weary travelers find shelter in a mysterious Welsh manor in this super-weird pre-code gothic thriller.
A group of disoriented tourists find themselves in the unwelcoming company of the psychotic Femm family, whose members include a religious fanatic and a scripture-quoting homicidal pyromaniac, watched over by their androgynous, 102-year-old father. Relieving the story’s overwhelming strangeness are superb performances by Charles Laughton and a young Gloria Stuart. Preserved by the Library of Congress with funding provided by The Film Foundation. (1932, 72 min, 35mm)
