Among the Living is a 1941 film noir directed by Stuart Heisler, and starring Albert Dekker, Susan Hayward, Harry Carey and Frances Farmer.[1] The film is a mix of social drama, horror film, and suspense thriller.


Albert Dekker plays twins, John and Paul. Paul supposedly died when he was 10 years old, but actually went insane and was kept in a secret room in his parents' mansion.



Time Out Paris called it "a gripping piece of Southern Gothic".[2] Ted Shen of the Chicago Reader wrote, "The cinematography is gloomy and noirish but the psychology is simplistic".[3]
