The Uninvited

Rated PG-13 2009

An archetypal 40s ghost story, ambitiously decked out in high studio finery, with billowing curtains and other kinds of hyperromantic kitsch that can put you in mind of death by tuberculosis, though ultimately it's a bit of a letdown (1944). Brother and sister Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey buy an isolated seaside house in Cornwall (waves dashing against the rocks, etc) and soon become aware of an eerie presence that doesn't bode well for the housewarming. With Gail Russell, Cornelia Otis Skinner, and Donald Crisp; Lewis Allen directed, stiffly but not without occasional delirious indulgence, and Victor Young contributed the memorably overripe score. 98 min.
