Quotes from

Prof. Morlant: You're afraid of me!
Laing: [Shakes his head] I'm afraid FOR you.
Prof. Morlant: [Referring to the jewel] If this should leave me, you'll have reason to fear... for when the full moon strikes the door of my tomb, I will come back. You hear? I will come back to kill!


Doctor: [referring to Morlant] What was the idea of bandaging his hand like that?
Laing: I cannot say. He had many a queer fancy.


Nigel Hartley: I happened to be staying in the neighborhood, and hearing of your master's illness I took the liberty of calling. How is he tonight?
Laing: He'll never see the morning.
Nigel Hartley: He has not asked for anyone of my cloth?
Laing: Nor will he. He's set in his ways, and they are the ways of the heathen.
Nigel Hartley: I know he won't see the rector, but though I'm a comparative stranger, I don't like to leave a man to die like that.
Laing: He'll die in his own fashion as he has lived.
Nigel Hartley: Still, sometimes at the end...
Laing: Not him! He's stubborn and unbending and will be so at the throne itself!

Facts about

When Boris Karloff traveled to England to shoot The Ghoul, it was the first time in nearly 25 years that he returned to his home country and reunited with the surviving members of his family. Filmed March 13-late April 1933, it was Karloff's first British feature (his last would be "Curse of the Crimson Altar" in 1968).
This was the first British horror film of the sound era.
For years this was regarded as a "lost film" with no prints or elements known to exist. A nitrate release print was discovered in the Czech National Archives in Prague. This print was a subtitled edited version that was in poor condition and contained numerous splices. Years later, a print of the uncut British version was finally discovered.
