As part of 'A Queer Séance', join Ghouls on Film - Belfast's feminist horror society - and QFT as we investigate a tragic family past, a mysteriously locked room, cold chills, and bumps in the night in this gothic Hollywood classic.

A pair of siblings from London (Ray Milland and Ruth Hussey) purchase a surprisingly affordable, lonely cliff-top house in Cornwall, only to discover that it actually carries a ghostly price—and soon they’re caught up in a bizarre romantic triangle from beyond the grave.

Rich in atmosphere, The Uninvited, directed by Lewis Allen, was groundbreaking for the seriousness with which it treated the haunted-house genre, and it remains an elegant and eerie experience, featuring a classic score by Victor Young.

Ghouls on Film invite you to look back at Victorian gothic traditions and contact the spirits of past and present, just like the inhabitants of Windward House, as we reimagine the art of Tarot.

'A Queer Séance' is inspired by the concept of ‘The Apparitional Lesbian’; the idea that throughout history, queerness has been hidden in plain sight – overlooked due to fear and in turn, has become ghostly.

Screening as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films, a UK-wide film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
