The Red House is a 1947 black-and-white psychological thriller starring Edward G. Robinson


A tale of suspense with Edward G. Robinson as a handicapped farmer Pete. He and sister Ellen have raised ward Meg as their own on a reclusive farm. Now a teen, Meg convinces her friend Nath to come help with chores on the farm. When Nath insists on using a short cut home through the woods, Pete warns the young man of screams in the night and the terrors associated with the abandoned red house. Curious, Meg and Nath ignore his warnings and begin exploring and troubling secrets are revealed.


Reviewer Dave Sindelar [1] gives the film a positive review: "It's not perfect; it's a little too long, so you end up figuring some of the final revelations before you should, and it gets a little repetitive at times, but the strong acting and some memorable images make it worth the investment."

The film is also praised as a "Murky psychological thriller with resonant settings and an emotive Rózsa score.Template:Ref
