One of the best haunted house movies ever made, watch this one late at night with the lights off. At 32 pages, this pressbook is almost as impressive as the movie. Of note is the Your Radio Campaign page, which reminds us of a time before social and commercial digital media. And of very special importance, this is the first movie to depict ghosts as real. Before this, there was always a rational reason to explain away the supernatural proceedings, usually fostered by criminal intent and delivered with comedy. Within the context of the Universal Monster horrors, it's also an interesting contrast: when Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolf man were seeking scientific cures for their "ailments," in other words, when Universal made their monsters rationally-existing as opposed to supernaturally, The Uninvited scared audiences with the real deal: No jokes, no slapstick, just good old-fashioned scares to chill the bones; and no explanation at the end to eliminate the supernatural as the cause, or leaving the audience with uncertainty such as in The Cat People (1942).
