The Uninvited

 (1944)

The Uninvited Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Seeking respite from the bustle of London life, writer Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland, Dial M for Murder and The Lost Weekend) and his sister Pamela (Ruth Hussey, The Philadelphia Story) 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?

For more about The Uninvited and the The Uninvited Blu-ray release, see the The Uninvited Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, Donald Crisp, Dorothy Stickney, Barbara Everest, Alan Napier

The Uninvited Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Lewis Allen's The Uninvited arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"This new digital transfer created in 2K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from a 35mm safety duplicate negative made from a nitrate composite fine-grain. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, and warps were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Digital Vision's Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise management, jitter, and flicker.

Scanning supervisor: Russell Smith.
Colorist: Lee Kline/Criterion, New York.
Film scanning: Universal Studios, Universal City, CA."

Excluding a couple of extremely light vertical lines that appear on the right side of the image frame early into the film, the presentation is very pleasing. Where there is an abundance of natural light, detail and clarity are very good. The outdoor shots, in particular, look very good. The darker footage also boasts pleasing depth.Also, there are no big contrast fluctuations. The best news, however, is that there are no traces of problematic degraining and sharpening corrections. I should also mention that there are no traces of fading. Unsurprisingly, when projected from start to finish the film remains tight around the edges and the balance between the blacks, grays, and white is never compromised. Finally, there are no serious compression issues to report in this review. All in all, this is a very competent presentation of The Uninvited that should make its fans quite happy. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Uninvited Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Unsurprisingly, dynamic intensity is quite limited. However, clarity is very good while depth is sufficient. The presence of the ghosts inside the house is also easily felt. The dialog is stable, free of problematic background hiss, and easy to follow. For the record, there are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
