The Uninvited (1944) on UK DVD this May

Exposure Cinema have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Uninvited on 7th May 2012. Lewis Allen’s 1944 spine-tingler, starring Ray Milland, Gail Russell and Ruth Hussey, will be available in a special Collector’s Edition featuring an illustrated booklet of critical articles, posters and lobby card reproductions.

  • First official DVD release in the world
  • Illustrated collector's booklet featuring exclusively commissioned articles and four lobby card reproductions.
  • Original theatrical trailer.
  • Gallery of production stills, posters and lobby cards.
  • Remastered. 1.33:1 Full Frame | English DD2.0 Mono
  • Dual-layer, progressive scan, high-bitrate encoding for optimum picture quality.
  • Newly-written English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing.

Synopsis: Seeking respite from the bustle of London life, writer Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland) and his sister Pamela (Ruth Hussey) move into a neglected clifftop mansion and set about making it their home. However, it isn’t long before an unnerving presence makes itself felt: an eerie chill lingers in the rooms and distant wailing is heard at night. Despite Roderick’s cynicism, it becomes increasingly clear that the house is haunted - but why in such a snug haven would the dead trouble the living?
