MORAL OF THE STORY: Put Boris Karloff in any film and it is a classic no matter what it is!
FUN FACT: First British Talkie Horror Film and Boris Karloff’s first British film was originally thought to be lost for many years but now is widely available
140-WORD MINI REVIEW: The Ghoul rips off The Mummy and The Old Dark House, still fun thought and worth watching as Karloff’s first UK film
