Storyline

American salesman Jack Robinson falls in love with Englishwoman Cynthia Marley and they visit her family so he can ask for permission to marry her. She points out to him that her relatives are rather eccentric and, by the way, a cousin has just died. The remaining members of the clan are; the sinister Reginal; Percival, an inventor who has recently discovered electricity, the phonograph, and several other handy items; Natalia, a macabre, vampire-like creature; Cornwallis, a hammy and dapper ex-actor; Grandfather, who lies bedridden upstairs; and, by the way, Muldoon, who is kept locked up in the fear that he will harm someone. Several attempts are made on his life which leads Jack to believe that the Marleys are a shade past eccentric. He becomes convinced that he is just in the way of one of the Marley's attempts to do away with the other Marleys, especially, during his investigation of the vanishing Marleys, when he learns that the family fortune consists of one million dollars and ...

Terrible Old Dark House Comedy
28 August 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

American Pat Boone falls in love with Englishwoman Erica Rogers and goes to visit her uncle to ask permission to marry her. He meets her family, who turn out to be a bunch of weirdos that live in a gloomy mansion. This is a tired 'old dark house' comedy. It's not funny in the slightest nor is it very original. I generally like ODH movies, whether they're comedies or not. This one's full of clichés. Probably director Terence Fisher's worst film. I'm not sure what appealed to him about this. Pat Boone is typically bland and sings a corny song. The rest of the cast is mostly forgettable. The one exception being Andree Melly as the vampiric Natalia. My score is a 4 on the strength of her scenes alone. Otherwise I would give it a 1.
