The Uninvited is a short story taken from a paperback collection of short stories, entitled, “The Little Book of Dark Tales”, which is available from my website at www.wrarmstrong.com. When Tim and Helen Christopher move into their dream home with their young son, Adam, they are visited upon by an elderly woman, who refuses to leave them alone. Adam especially, is targeted. Gradually, Tim and Helen are forced to conclude that their unwanted visitor requires something from them. But what? Could it be their son, or is it something more?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a fairly formulaic horror/ghost story, about a family that move into a haunted house. It has an eerie sort of feel to it, but it’s fairly easy to guess what’s going to happen.
6.5 out of 10.
