In this late-'40s nail-biter, Edward G. Robinson plays Pete Morgan, a crippled farmer who won't let anyone near a mysterious red farmhouse which is on his property. When the young leading lady's (Allene Roberts) curiosity gets the best of her, she enters and begins to unravel the house's tightly guarded secrets of lost love, murder, and the identity of her real parents.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This isn't a noir in the traditional sense, but it boasts enough ingredients to pass as one."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Has its effective moments."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A peculiar thriller with some horror overtones. It conjures up a wholesome small town feel, complete with nosy neighbors and gossip, and an undercurrent that grows increasingly darker."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Another classic Robinson performance in a moody thriller."
‑ Carol Cling, Las Vegas Review-Journal
