The Last Warning (1929) is a mystery film directed by Paul Leni. It is a companion piece to Universal Pictures 1927 production of The Cat and the Canary. This was the last film directed by Leni before his death from blood poisoning in Los Angeles on September 2, 1929.

The Last Warning was re-made in 1939 by Joe May under the title The House of Fear.[1]


Five years after a theater was closed following a murder of one of its actors during a performance, a producer decides to solve the mystery by again staging the play with the remaining cast. During the repeat performance another murder occurs. Eventually it is discovered that the murders were part a ploy devised by the stage manager to sabotage the production.
