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)

Part of our Gothic Cinema series. See the full screening schedule.
