So since when have crimes been committed in a house with all the lights on? This chop-licking British melodrama stars the gloriously uninhibited Tod Slaughter, playing the unspeakable Sir Henry Glyde. Disposing of his wealthy wife, Glyde replaces her with a look-alike, a recent "graduate" from the local insane asylum. This may sound vaguely familiar to you if you've seen the 1948 Warner Bros. Gothic drama The Woman in White. Indeed, both the Warner film and Crimes in the Dark House were based on the same 1860 novel by Wilkie Collins -- and both are good gory fun in their own separate ways. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
A bone-chiller that still manages to inject humor, this movie was based on an actual event and even spawned Stephen Sondheim's hit play "Sweeney Todd" in 1978. Slaughter portrays a mad barber who has a deal with a baker to provide fillings for his meat pies. Unfortunately for the barber's customers, their visit to his basement makes them an integral part of that deal. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi
Maria Marten is the first film version of that chop-licking old stage melodrama Murder in the Red Barn. Villainous town squire William Corder (Warwick Ward) lusts after the virginal Maria Marten (Trilby Clark), and lures her to an old barn for the purposes of seduction. When Maria resists his advances, Corder murders the poor girl and buries her body beneath the barn. The rest of the story deals with Corder's efforts to cover up his crime and his ultimate downfall at the hands of the innocent young man who has been held responsible for the girl's disappearance. A better-known version of this hoary old barnstormer was filmed in 1940, with the inimitable Tod Slaughter mugging and glowering his way through the role of William Corder. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
