Be careful when choosing a mother-in-law,
This review is from: The Uninvited  [DVD] (DVD)
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
