The Uninvited ★★★★

Fine haunted house flick from the early 1940s treats ghosts with dignity and seriousness. As a result, it’s one of the best films of its type, anticipating later flicks like The Haunting and The Innocents. Milland is great as he tries to solve the convoluted mystery of the spirits that haunt the manor he just bought. The ending is a bit of a cheat and the flourishes of comedy and melodrama don’t work quite as well as they might, but a solid effort all around well worth watching.
