The Uninvited

The Uninvited is a smart little horror film that takes a page from "Vertigo."  Like "Vertigo" our hero has a phobia.  Here it is a fear of all space (how Lovecraftian), at the beginning of the film we see how she has to often walk with either eyes closed or facing a wall inches away.  She mentions she got this way after an odd encounter with a spooky old woman.

Later she's supposedly cured, and is now living in a new place.  Things are looking up, or maybe not.  When left alone, things begin to happen.  She begins to see ghosts.  She gets her phobia back.  Oh and she keeps hearing a crying baby.  No one believes her, and now she has to face her fears and ghosts.

It moves along well, and you really feel her odd fear of space.  It's certainly an effective little chiller.
