5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense!, 10 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Criterion Collection: The Uninvited [Blu-ray] [1944] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey star as siblings who buy a huge, old English house (sans electricity, of course) on a cliff over-looking the sea. They soon feels chills and hear ghostly sounds at night.

This is a wonderful movie, genuinely scary but completely non-violent. The Oscar-nominated, black and white photography in the creepy, dark house is outstanding and the fear of things that go bump in the night is what makes this one to watch with the lights on. Milland and Hussey are witty and urbane and Gail Russell is sweet as a neighbor girl with an interest in the house.

The lovely, "Stella by Starlight" is played several times and the entire soundtrack is excellent. This is a good old-fashioned thriller with a few laughs to break the tension.

I own the SD DVD of this movie and it's one of my favourites. I also buy a lot of US Import Blu Rays from Amazon as I find gererally they are region free and play on UK Blu ray players so was wondering if you knew if this blu ray was region free too or locked region A. My Blu ray will play region 1 US DVD's but not egion A blu ray. Thanks
