Watch something different for Halloween. "THE UNINVITED" is FANTASTIC -- and SCARY! Directed by Lewis Allen. With Ray Milland, Ruth Hussey, Donald Crisp, Cornelia Otis Skinner. A composer and his sister discover that the reason they are able to purchase a beautiful gothic seacoast mansion very cheaply is the house's unsavory past.
I generally don't care for books with an agenda but Liz Jensen's agenda is revealed with such creepiness that I was hooked. The genius is that her main character whose life is ruled by facts and truth (he has Asperger's Syndrome) now lives in a world that is no longer logical. I won't give away the agenda but I think it is two-fold. You should judge for yourself. Enjoy!
