This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

On a lonely, pine-clad hill overlooking the Hudson, stood the grotesque mansion of an eccentric millionaireAnd so the scene is set for a hugely entertaining haunted-house mystery in which the relatives of a deceased recluse gather for the reading of his will. Which of the assembled is as they first appear? Who is innocent and who should not be trusted? Which one of them will fall victim to the murderous lunatic roaming the grounds and who will be prey to the grotesque monsters lurking in the mansions shadows and secret passages. Think Agatha Christie meets Scooby Doo with a generous dash of German Expressionism and you get the idea of the flavour of this riotous and influential horror classic.Dir.
