Classic Trailers: THE UNINVITED


     Wednesday's Classic Film Trailers has a little more British horror on Halloween Eve, but this one is from the mid 40s. A haunted house film that is truly scary because of that deep fear of the unknown. No CGI. Just great music, great lighting and eerie sound. Lewis Allen's The Uninvited (1944) was first brought to my attention when I  read Martin Scorsese's Top 11 Horror Films list. The film stars Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey as a brother and sister who purchase a seaside house in the English county of Cornwall. They are in for more than they bargained for as the house has an eerie familial past that the two siblings get entangled in. It is a haunted house film taken seriously and is full of rich atmosphere. A film that I believe is truly a classic of the horror genre. And that score and the sound effects are absolutely chilling. A fantastic black and white horror film. Enjoy.
