The Silent House
Spooky house thriller directed by Walter Forde, replete with secret panels and snake-filled rooms.
Evil criminal Chan Fu sets out to wreak revenge on the Winsford family for past offences in this creepy mystery directed by erstwhile silent comedian Walter Forde. This was a prestige British production for the period, with no expense spared on the lavish interiors of the old dark house and the flashback sequence in which Chinese junks sail down the River Thames (standing in for the Far East).
