In this taut chiller, Robinson plays Pete Morgan, a crippled farmer living a secluded life with his sister, Ellen (Anderson), and his ward, Meg (Roberts). Morgan has strict orders that no one is to visit a red house located in the woods surrounding his property, and he enforces this rule

by hiring Teller (Calhoun) to keep people from trespassing. Curiosity, however, gets the best of Meg and handsome farm hand Nath (McCallister), and together they learn that the mystery of the red house involves her real parents, unrequited love, and murder. An eerie little mystery chiller,

directed with considerable flair by Delmer Daves. Robinson is superb as the crippled farmer with a deep, dark secret, as is Anderson as his loyal sister.
