Feb 4, 2005
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. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- This isn't a noir in the traditional sense, but it boasts enough ingredients to pass as one. Full Review

A sort of rural noir, THE RED HOUSE combines smothering foreboding -- and Robinson's anguished gargoyle mask -- with fresh outdoor photography and a keen sense of quotidian existence in remote places...

Product Description:

Edward G. Robinson stars as Pete Morgan, an honest small town student who finds after school employment with local farmer Nath Storm (Lon McCallister). Things go awry for the sedulous Pete one day, when he takes a short cut home through haunted woods. Storm warns Pete to stay out of the woods and away from THE RED HOUSE within. Unwilling to buy into the supernatural hocus pocus, Pete enlists the help of Storm's fresh-faced and innocent daughter, Tibby, to help him solve the mystery of THE RED HOUSE.

Director Delmer Daves only endeavor into the horror genre, THE RED HOUSE starts out slow, but ends with a bang. Young Julie London is swooning as the virginal Tibby and McCallister's expressions of madness and trepidation seem absolutely authentic. Miklos Roza's score is perhaps the most fun, as it prominently features the Theremin: an instrument played without touch often heard in early sci-fi films.
