In The Red House, Robinson and Anderson are brother and sister Pete and Ellen Morgan who live on a rural farm surrounded by woods with Meg, a girl they adopted when she was a baby. Pete and Ellen keep to themselves and seldom go into town, but Meg attends the local high school and has a crush on classmate Nath Storm. Unfortunately for her, Nath is dating Tibby (London) who is fond of him but likes to keep her options open. Tibby also has an eye for thuggish Teller, attracted by the air of danger and knowing wickedness he projects.
The best thing about this thriller is the performance given by Edward G. Robinson as the seemingly mild mannered, middle aged farmer who, due to buried guilt and fear, gradually descends into paranoia and madness. The other actors are all fine in their roles, but Robinson generally steals most of the scenes he's in. I will say, though, that the title The Red House seems a little incongruous because, filmed in black and white, the house looks grey, not red. That was the name, however, of the 1943 novel the film is based on, so I guess their options were limited.
