The Uninvited (1944)

You may notice by my reviews this month that I'm partial to Haunted House stories.  This is a wonderful Haunted House film.  Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey play a brother and sister who, while on vacation, discover a grand house for sale at a ridiculously low price.  They make an offer and it is immediately accepted, much to the dismay of the owner's granddaughter.  But...all is not well in this house....why does the one room upstairs feel so damp and filthy??  Why does their dog Bobbie run away?  Can they cleanse this house of it's evil past?

It's October...and my thoughts turn to Halloween.  I'll be reviewing several classic horror movies this month and here is the first.  The "House on Haunted Hill" is one of my classic favorites!  Vincent Price and his wife host a party where each guest, who agrees to stay the night in a haunted house, will earn $100,000.
