An American writer goes to a remote Welsh manor on a $20,000 bet: can he write a classic novel like “Wuthering Heights” in twenty-four hours? Upon his arrival, however, the writer discovers that the manor, thought empty, actually has several, rather odd, inhabitants.
If you are a fan of classic horror films, this will certainly be a treat! It has Vincent Price (my personal all-time favorite), Christopher Lee, John Carradine, and Peter Cushing. Plus there several twists and turns throughout the film that keep you guessing until the end.
The supporting cast does a decent job of completing the ensemble and the old mansion where the story takes place makes a delightful setting.
One small complaint is the acting ability of Desi Arnaz, Jr. It’s hard to say if his acting was truly bad or if it just didn’t measure up to the talents of Price, Lee, and Cushing. Either way, it didn’t detract much from the overall enjoyment of the film.
If you want a good old-fashioned thriller with plot twists and a little bit of slasher thrown in, you won’t be disappointed in “House of the Long Shadows”.
