Josh Soriano’s Five Best “Old Dark House” Films

14 July 2014 3:07 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

On a stormy night, amidst the the trees on a fog-shrouded​ hilltop, a large house sits. Inside, a group of people have come together to hear the reading of a will. As the night continues, the ​​storm’s grasp strengthens and renders it impossible for the group to leave. They’ll have to spend the night.

Brosnan devoted a chapter to a new British company called Tyburn Films. Founded by the charismatic and ambitious Kevin Francis, »
