This film is radically different from both the novel and the 1932 film version. Only the basic concept - a traveller arriving at a country house inhabited by a weird family with a deranged servant called Morgan - is the same. After that, this version has few similarities with either the novel or the earlier film.
The Old Dark House was filmed in May-June 1962, but was not released until 1966.
In October 2009, The Old Dark House was released on Region 1 as part of the William Castle Film Collection.This is the only official DVD release so far.
