The Uninvited: The Criterion Collection DVD

SKU ID #461993
$19.95
A pair of siblings (Ministry of Fear's Ray Milland and The Philadelphia Story's Ruth Hussey) from London purchase a surprisingly affordable, lonely cliff-top house in Cornwall, only to discover that it actually carries a ghostly price; soon they're caught up in a bizarre romantic triangle from beyond the grave. Rich in atmosphere, The Uninvited, directed by Lewis Allen (Suddenly), was groundbreaking for the seriousness with which it treated the haunted-house genre, and it remains an elegant and eerie experience, featuring a classic score by Victor Young (Written on the Wind). A tragic family past, a mysteriously locked room, cold chills, bumps in the night-this gothic Hollywood classic has it all.

      I remember my mother telling me about seeing this movie when she was a young woman and grabbing the leg of the man sitting next to her. I love Ray Milland in any movie and especially in this one.

            As I stated above, this is the classic ghost story.Great actors, beautiful Cornish scenery. No gore (which I can do without, thank you). And I almost forgot besides the love story that blooms among the "spooky stuff". there is the haunting theme and popular song, "Stella by Starlight".

                  Have this in my VHS collection for many years - afraid I would wear it out soon had to buy it for those nights where I want really good ghost story - not interested in violence or gore.

                      Realistic kind of ghost story, this is as real as it gets. Your imagination, which is much more scary then any production special effects, is allow to take you to the heart of the story.
                      I love Ray Milland, Gail Russell and Ruth Hussey together. Even the dog earns credits for acting like a dog would in this situation. The cast was marvelous and location just what you wanted.
                      I love this movie and watch it several times a year, too good to only watch in October.

                          A classic ghost movie, It raisie the hairs on my neck. Although, thoday it may seem tame. I't an excellent movie with a decent plot, good and convincing actors, and great special effect given the movie was made inthe forties. See this movie.

                            Great movie for a classic mystery/suspense fan. This movie didn't need the gore factor modern movies seem to think they need to get the audiences attention. It stand on it's own by being a simple ghost story with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.

                                      NO Blood
                                      NO Gore
                                      Just a plain simple realistic kind of Ghost story. This gets your imagination juices flowing.
                                      I love Ray Milland and Gail Russell together. And Ruth Hussey is perfect as his sister. The cast was marvelous.
                                      I loved this movie when I was a kid growing up. It's even better now.
