Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For modern audiences, the movie is more elegantly creepy than truly scary, but it still charms."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"This proves to be more than just a ghost story, as the twists turn it into a full-blown mystery that stirs up memories of Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Decidedly more spooky than scary."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Brilliant! One of the greatest of all ghost stories."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"'Tthis is the only way I can paint you,' says Milland, at the piano. 'Some black keys, and some white.' The speaker might as well be cinematographer Charles Lang, whose painterly compositions -- some black keys, and some white -- make this a spooky gem."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"a serious-minded, visually elegant chiller with real dramatic weight that was destined to stand apart"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"[T]here's some genuinely spooky stuff here, the wailing sobs that wrack the seaside house on the gloomy cliff and all..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Its thrills and chills are little frissons that tickle the imagination instead of grabbing by the throat."
‑ Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis
"The Uninvited of the first films to treat the supernatural seriously, and to play ghosts and hauntings as something other than fodder for comedy."
‑ Keith Phipps, The Dissolve
"An impressive, though outdated, old-fashioned ghost story."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
