The Uninvited & Night of the Hunter

Lewis M. Allen’s The Uninvited
(1944, 99 min)
A pair of siblings (Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey) from London purchase a surprisingly affordable, lonely cliff-top house in Cornwall, only to discover that it carries a ghostly price; soon they’re caught up in a bizarre romantic triangle from beyond the grave. A tragic family past, a mysteriously locked room, cold chills, bumps in the night—this gothic Hollywood classic has it all. 

Followed by:

Charles Laughton’s Night of the Hunter
(1955, 93 min)
Here is truly a standalone horror masterwork. Robert Mitchum is a traveling preacher named Harry Powell whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow (Shelley Winters) are uncovered by her terrified young children. Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic—also featuring Lillian Gish—is cinema’s quirkiest rendering of the battle between good and evil.
