Stay the Night if You Dare!
18 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gloria Stuart, of "Titanic" fame who was a Universal film actress of the 1930s, here has just turned 21 as of midnight and is having a small birthday party with three men who are vying for her affection and her father, Lionel Atwill in the "Secret of the Blue Room." All are having a good time, when the subject comes up of the blue room. What is the blue room? What so gruesomely ever happened there? It seems it has been locked for years, because several people were mysteriously killed in that room at exactly 1:00 a.m. on separate occasions, including a detective trying to solve the murders before him. When one of them offers to stay in the room to try to solve the mystery and prove his love for Gloria in doing so, he is nowhere to be found. So begins the strange goings-on in this effective little chiller. In fact, I would watch this again, even knowing the culprit. Lionel Atwill made a career of little horror films just like this, maybe even more macabre than this. The film also stars Paul Lukas and Onslow Stevens as two of her suitors, and Robert Barrat is on hand as the butler who seems to act like he knows more about what's going on than the others do. And, Gloria Stuart sings a lovely song near the beginning of the film. For a spooky time on Halloween night, this will definitely fit the bill and you would be more than entertained by Universal's roster of capable stars and the Universal touch of the sinister creepiness of something in the air waiting for you…
