Product Description

Product 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. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES � New 2K digital film restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition � New visual essay by filmmaker Michael Almereyda � PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Farran Smith Nehme

Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland) and his sister Pamela (Ruth Hussey) are touring the Cornish sea side when their dog chases a squirrel into an empty house. They follow and in the process of recovering the dog see and house and fall in love with it. Even though they were strongly implied to that it may just be haunted they buy it anyway. Naturally animals can see what people do not and their dog runs off. The Cooks cat will not go upstairs. Stella Meredith (Gail Russell) thinks it is her mother's ghost and wants s to visit. Her grandfather Commander Beech (Donald Chrisp) knows something but is not saying.

The movie gets progressively creepier. What is bad is they the brother and sister accept that fact that the house is haunted from the beginning and instead of running away, with the help of the local doctor, attempt to fix the situation.

Keep up with the story as everyone has a different version and you may not be so surprised in the end. Meantime the acting and the pacing is great.

I bought the VHS and converted it to DVD; but I would not mind having an official DVD

The Uninvited(released Feb/44) stars,among others,Ray Milland,Gail Russell,Ruth Hussey and Donald Crisp.This is a fair to middling story of a house haunting,mixed in with a who done it.Unfortunately the unraveling of the facts,as the plot pace takes its sweet time,gives rise at times to a lethargy and unease in being able to follow the storyline.
Speaking of which,the story finds a brother and sister(Milland and Hussey)walking along the Devonshire coast in England.They come upon a rather old mansion atop a promontory and investigate.They fall in love with it and before you know it they have bought the property from the owner(Crisp)for a steal of a price.The house does come with stories of noises and unrest which the couple dismiss out of hand.The owners daughter(Russell)has other thoughts about the sale,as she is very attached to the place.Eventually her fears are assuaged as she and Milland start to hit it off.
Milland goes to London to fetch their servant and returns a night later.That night both sister and brother are awakened by the sound of a moaning female voice.As dawn comes up the voice disappears.Later that day Russell comes to dinner.Suddenly a smell of mimosa permeates the room and Russell runs wildly out of the house towards the cliff.Milland barely manages to stop her before she runs over the edge.It turns out this is the spot at which her mother had fallen over the cliff many years before.She says that the house is haunted by her mothers spirit.A local doctor(Napier)is called to attend Russell.Milland is able to glean more facts about the house's troubled past from him.It seems Russell's father was a painter who had had an affair with a Spanish gypsy model.They eventually ended up taking her to Paris and leaving her there on her own.

In an era when paranormal or "spooky" films seemingly "must" be made with grue and gore and hair-trigger graphic violence (compare the re-made "The Haunting" with the superb classy orginal)..or when computer graphic special effects (generally of the "gross out' variety) are wont to take over the entire thrust and direction of a movie story ("The tail wagging the dog")...a film like "THE UNINVITED" is like a breath of fresh air. It is a marvelous cinema achievement, made back at a time when people in "Hollyweird" still knew truly HOW to make movies. This one eschews any and all grue and gore and lets the story (yes, there IS one of THOSE!) and the relationships of the characters (YIKES!! It has THOSE too!!!! And they are actually DEVELOPED!!!!
Who'd have THOUGHT????) carry the viewer through a tale of mounting tension to a thrilling climax and denoument. This is just plain good old fashioned top-notch STORYTELLING. The photography is excellent, the music haunting and brilliant, the acting first rate. "THE UNINVITED" is just a gem of a motion picture. The biggest question about it is, WHY is it not yet on DVD????? Seems to me one of the best ghost stories out there OUGHT to be on DVD! I know this is one reviewer/viewer who would snatch one up in a minute. This movie IS that good. And, while we're on the subject of getting good movies out on DVD, where the heck is John Wayne's "The High and the Mighty"? Or the excellent Robert Mitchum/Robert Wagner Korean War fighter pilot opus, "The Hunters"? Surely makes one wonder.

THE UNINVITED is a truly top-notch haunted house film. The story has lots of spooky moments and the ghostly manifestations are presented with subtlety, leaving much to the imagination of the viewer. Lighting is used effectively to heighten the mood, and, having been filmed in 1943, there is no special effect overkill to make it seem hokey.
Besides the haunting aspects of this film, it is an excellent movie in most other respects, as well. The acting is first-rate, the music is lovely, and the scenery is as beautiful as it is appropriate to the mood. The tension builds steadily as the romance between Londoner Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland) and local girl Stella Meredith (Gail Russel) progresses. Ruth Hussey does a fine job in the role of Fitzgerald's increasingly edgy sister, and Donald Crisp is excellent as Stella's over-protective grandfather.
THE UNINVITED is an excellent movie and one of the best ghost stories on film to date. In terms of pure hair-raising, spine-tingling chills, the original 1963 version of THE HAUNTING is tops, in my opinion. THE UNINVITED isn't far behind, though, and in terms of overall production values, it doesn't get any better than this. A great addition to any video collection.
