The Girl Who Dared – 1944 – United States

The Girl Who Dared is a mystery/horror flick evoking The Old Dark House (1932) and its many imitators: The Ghost Walks (1934), One Frightened Night (1935), The Rogues Tavern (1936), A Walking Nightmare (1942), One Body Too Many (1944), and others. On a stormy night, the disparate members of a wealthy dysfunctional family attend a ghost-hunting soiree at a secluded manor. No one knows who sent the mysterious invitations.

When an unidentified corpse materializes along with capsules of radium, the plot thickens and panic escalates.
