El caserón de las sombras Dirigida por James Whale
While not as epochal as Whale’s “Frankenstein” (1930) or the equal of his two great horror comedies, “The Invisible Man” (1933) and “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935), it’s an extremely credible entertainment that, creaking along at a smart pace, applauds itself with shrieks, thuds and thunderclaps.

Still the wittiest example of the genre that took its name, The Old Dark House assumes glittering and sometimes rabid new life in a first-class 4K restoration, screening on September 30 at the New York Film Festival. Suddenly, we can see every gray or ebony strip in the latticework of aged wood and smoke-stained plaster and billowing shadows that Whale and his team built into their production design. So when some bright young things pierce the darkness, they’re akin to licks of flames.

The movie brims with quotable dialogue, including the immortal line “Have a potato.” The restoration, produced by U.S. outfit Cohen Media, looks dazzling.
