Description
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.

      This can be a little cheesy with the special effects compared to today, but interesting and good plot turns keep it interesting.

          One of my favorite classic ghost movies! Criterion did an excellent job refurbishing the video and audio. The extra about the film topic and the actors was interesting. Highly recommended!

                    I saw this as a young girl (I am turning 60 in December) and was mesmerized. This, to me, is still the best ghost story ever. So well done. I couldn't believe Ray Milland went from this to playing in a movie with Rosie Grier as a two-headed monster. Anyway, "The Uninvited" is superb and I am going to order it.

                    I fell in love with this movie when I was young. Had it on VHS watching it until the tape almost fell apart. My favorite go-to movie. Just has everything without the blood, guts and chainsaws that todays horror movies have. Was without it for years until I saw it advertising on TCM for sale. I almost jumped out of my skin, I couldn't get to the computer fast enough. Today's movies rely on startle response, killing puppies and babies and ridiculous amounts of gore to scare people. I think that's lazy. Give me a good old fashion mystery and imagination to scare the bujeezous out of me. I watch TCM all the time. Thank you TCM for everything you do.

                    So glad this is out in DVD. Best ghost story without all the bells and whistles. Scares me more than any other movie in this genre.

                      This is one of the three GREAT ghost story movies (the others being The Haunting and The Innocents), and it's driven me nuts that before now it was unavailable on DVD/Blu-Ray. Criterion (of course) has done a terrific job with the transfer (looks crystal clear) and the packaging (very nice booklet included in the Blu-Ray.) Also some nice extras. So happy it's finally available!!!
