I usually hate remakes, but "The Uninvited" is a great remake of the excellent but confused "Janghwa, Hongryeon" a. I liked to see in the Extras of the DVD the interview with the writers of the screenplay, producers and directors Charles and Thomas Guard since they have been very honest in their words recognizing the merits of the original Asian movie that was the base of their script.
The plot focuses on an old house by a cliff side. Roderick and Pamela Fitzgerald take one look at the house and fall in love with it instantly and after speaking with the house owner, a Commander Beech, agree a price to buy the house.
The deal is initially unwelcome by the Commander's granddaughter Stella as it was once her mother's house, who died when she was three years old. However, she soon starts up a friendship with the brother and it's not long before they realise that something is not quite right with the house. The film is directed by Lewis Allen and he does a really good job with it.
Much of the film takes place at night and this allows him to deliver a thoroughly chilling atmosphere and the way that the house is soaked in shadows is creepy in the extreme. The characters walk around with only candles to light the way and this fits in very well with the blood curdling screams of the unseen phantoms! The film stars the great Ray Milland, and he delivers a great performance; owning the screen with a charismatic swagger and helping to keep things interesting.
The film also stars the beautiful Gail Russell as the love interest. The ghost plot almost takes a backseat at times to the developing love story between Milland and Russell's characters, but this is not a problem since the film always remains intriguing. The ghost story is not particularly complex but it has more than enough about it to carry along the film and the atmosphere. It all boils down to a suitable ending and overall this really is a brilliant little ghost story and one that should be a must see for all horror fans!

The Uninvited is one of the rare Hollywood ghost stories that does not cop out with a "logical" ending. In fact, the film has more in common with British ghost tales of the period, in that the characters calmly accept spectral visitations as though they were everyday occurrences.
Roderick Fitzgerald Ray Milland and his sister, Pamela Ruth Hussey , buy a house on the Cornish seacoast, never suspecting that it is a "bad" house, subject to haunting. Before long, Roderick and Pamela are visited by Stella Meredith Gail Russell , whose late mother, it is said, is the house ghost. It is further supposed that the ghost means to do Stella harm.
Stella's grandfather Commander Beech Donald Crisp is close-mouthed on the issue, but it is clear he knows something that he isn't telling. Sure enough, there is a secret to the manor: Once the film's deep dark secret is revealed courtesy of a virtuoso "mad speech" by supporting actress Cornelia Otis Skinner , Roderick is able to single-handedly exorcise the estate and claim Stella as his bride.
Based on the novel by Dorothy Macardle with a few uncredited "lifts" from Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca , The Uninvited remains one of the spookiest "old dark house" films ever made, even after years of inundation by computer-generated special effects. Less effective was the sequel, The Unseen, which starts well but degenerates into a substandard murder mystery. Frank Partos , Dodie Smith. They seek out the owner, Commander Beech Donald Crisp , who lives with his twenty year-old granddaughter Stella Meredith Gail Russell far from the house, and he accepts their offer and sells the house for a very low price.
Roderick and Pamela also discover that the house is haunted and in Roderick's studio they feel a chill and near dawn they overhear uncanny sobs of a woman. They investigate and learn that a tragedy happened in the manor: Stella's father had an affair with a Spanish model and her mother died falling of the rocky coast and the model died of pneumonia. They also discover that the house is haunted by two ghosts, one of them evil and the other one trying to protect Stella.
The mystery is predictable and is not difficult to guess who the evil ghost is, but the movie has many scenes that startle the viewer and is supported by a magnificent cinematography in black and white. In accordance with a documentary about "The Uninvited", Gail Russell was a shy actress and her personality helped her in her performance since she was really scared.
Further, "The Uninvited" is the first Hollywood movie to take ghosts seriously since until this date this theme was explored in comedies. My vote is nine.
