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.

    Comments about this product:

    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.

                    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.

                          Ray Milland was great in this movie I really enjoyed his character. It is a clean and fun movie with a spooky side to it. The house is beautiful as well as the outside scenery. All the actors were great, including the dog and am very happy with this movie. Had it on VHS and wanted to make it permanent in my collection. An enjoyable feature.

                                I probably shouldn't have, but I first saw this movie when I was around 5 years old. And I'll tell you...every reflection on the wall at night for some time became a ghost in my imaginative mind. Still, the great story stuck with me.

                                When I was in college, I ran across a $10 VHS of The Uninvited and immediately picked it up. A couple of decades down the road, my VHS tape is showing significant wear and I had been unable to find a DVD release anywhere.

                                I took a chance and checked the TCM store a few weeks back and thank goodness, there it was!

                                So once again, the ghosts of Windward House are haunting my imagination.

                                I highly recommend this flick if you are looking for a supernatural story with a plot, a mystery, and not covered in gore or an action flick.

                                  I first saw it years ago as an afternoon movie and was entranced.. the characters are people I would like to know ... The Villainess is excellent as a foil for the others, actually she is just like my late stepmother...
                                  I love older spooky B/W films...the story is excellently told without over-the - top computer generated unbelievable pomposity..

                                          I have loved this movie since childhood and thrilled that I
                                          was able to buy the DVD. I have looked for this before and could not find it anywhere. Thanks TCM!

                                            Grab your popcorn, Good and Plenty, and your favorite soda pop and hold on to your socks. This movie will give you that little eerie chill great ghost movies always do. There twists and truns aplenty. Every now and then sniff the air for mimoso, and, if you have a staircase, watch out for the swirling mist at the top! Enjoy!
