The Long, Long Wait is Finally Over!,
This review is from: The Uninvited (Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is the greatest news in DVD/Blue-Ray movie releases since I found that "Carnival of Souls" had been released by Criterion years ago. I have been waiting for this film to be released for many years, and in October it will finally be on the home video market in a Region 1 format. "The Uninvited" is a stylish film that owes much of its look to "Rebecca," as well as the Val Lewton films that were contemporaneous with this 1944 release from Paramount. "The Uninvited" is a genuinely scary haunted house tale that takes its ghosts seriously...very seriously, indeed. For me, this film, "The Innocents" and "The Haunting" (1963) make up THE trilogy of well-made movies about ghosts, and I'm ecstatic about the fact that "The Uninvited" is getting the much-deserved Criterion treatment. Hot Dog!!

What you should be waiting for is ALIAS NICK BEAL, but since no one including Criterion knows what I'm talking about, I'll just go back to my cave with my British off-the-air bootleg and watch a real movie.

Thanks very much for making me aware of this obscure film! You have doubtless read another recent post claiming a fresh transfer has been traveling 'round the U.S. in a Noir retrospective. I'll certainly be keeping my eyes open for its eventual appearance on disc.

I agree and your trilogy features three of my all time favorite ghost flicks. So glad to finally own this on Blu-Ray.
