It is unoccupied, and when they find the owner, Commodore Beech (Donald Crisp), he is willing to sell for a surprisingly low price.

''The Uninvited'' is one of the oldest "scary ghost" stories ever made. Previous ghost movies either played ghosts for comedy (''Film/{{Topper}}'') or revealed the ghosts to be a trick or hoax (''Film/TheCatAndTheCanary'').

In fact, a lesbian relationship between Holloway and Mary is strongly implied.



* EvilDetectingDog: Rick and Pamela's dog refuses to climb the stairs to the second floor of the house, where the presence of the ghosts is strongest. Eventually it flees the house altogether. Lizzie the housekeeper's cat also refuses to go upstairs.

* BilingualBonus: After the spirit of Mary manifests itself at the seance and claims that it is there to protect Mary, the wine glass is flung across the room and Stella is possessed by the spirit of Carmel, who starts angrily muttering in Spanish. Carmel is actually saying that Mary is telling lies and that her love was stolen from her.

She seems way too fond of Mary, having named her sanitarium after Mary and hung a huge portrait of Mary in her office. She refers to Mary as "darling". She reminisces to Rick and Pamela about how she and Mary would sit up together and talk about how they were going to conquer the world. (And the hint of a lesbian relationship would explain why Mary was apparently willing to tolerate her husband's affair.)

Added DiffLines:

* OuijaBoard: A homemade version in which Rick puts little cubes with the letters of the alphabet on a table, with "YES" and "NO" written on pieces of paper, and a wine glass as the planchette. It's supposed to be a fake seance in order to convince Stella to leave the house behind, but the ghosts show up and make it a real one.


Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Mary wasn't Stella's mother, Carmel was. And Mary was the one who tried to throw Stella over the cliff, not Carmel.
