Product Description

From the producers of The Ring and Disturbia comes a nail-biting thriller, The Uninvited. Following the suspicious death of their mother, sisters Anna and Alex become entangled in a deadly battle of wills when their father becomes engaged to Rachel, their mother's former caretaker. As the two sisters investigate Rachel's questionable past, they are confronted with ghostly visions, terrifying nightmares and deadly consequences. All leading to an ending so shocking it will send chills down your spine!

Amazon.com

The china-doll features of Emily Browning (A Series of Unfortunate Events) are the eerie center of The Uninvited, an American remake of the wildly popular Korean horror film A Tale of Two Sisters. Browning stars as Anna, a young girl being released from a mental hospital following the harrowing death of her mother. But when she returns home, she discovers her father (David Strathairn) has fallen under the sexual spell of her mother's former nurse, Rachael (Elizabeth Banks, Zack and Miri Make a Porno), despite the open hostility of Anna's sister Alex (Arielle Kebbel, John Tucker Must Die). When Anna sees the ghost of her mother point at Rachael and scream "Murder!", Anna and Alex begin to investigate Rachael's past and make some unsettling discoveries. The Uninvited combines two horror trends: Twist endings (in this case, more than one) and recycling Asian horror images (particularly wet, crawling corpses). There's nothing particularly outstanding about The Uninvited, but it's superior to more lackluster Asian horror remakes like One Missed Call. The three lead actresses all have strangely glossy faces that look molded out of plastic, which adds a perhaps unintentional layer of creepiness. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Classy, fun and, yes, kind of scary April 6, 2009
Format:DVD
The Uninvited begins with our protagonist, Anna, in a mental ward after dealing with the emotional trauma of losing her mother in a freak fire. As the film begins, her psychiatrist believes she is ready to go back into the real world and she is allowed to move back in with her father and her older sister, Alex. Unfortunately, father is now seeing Rachel, a nurse who was in charge of Anna's mother. This weird situation is further complicated by the fact that Anna is becoming more and more convinced that her mom wasn't killed in a freak accident...maybe she was murdered.

So if you have watched ghost movies over the last ten or so years, you basically know this film. It hits all of the major plot points, has a couple requisite twists and throws weird scares at you (it is based on a Korean film, you know). I expected all of this. I even expected one twist that I thought was revealed very early on. Even so, the ending still surprised me and I have to say that this film was classy in telling a familiar story. The truth is, there hasn't really been a genre-changing film in the ghost story genre for awhile now. The Uninvited is no different. So, what is important is not what is being told (as there's nothing new under the sun), but how it's told.

Here The Uninvited soars where a lot of recent ghost stories (Unborn, for example) have failed. The storytelling is far classier than it has any right to be, the script is well-written and convincing and the actors are terrific. Emily Browning, playing Anna, practically carries the weight of the film on her slender shoulders. With her forlorn and innocent gaze, you really start to feel for her increasingly desperate plight. Meanwhile, her sister is played perfectly by Arielle Kebbel who brings a sexy older sibling charm to the proceedings.

5.0 out of 5 stars READ ME FIRST June 26, 2010
Format:DVD
DON'T READ ANY OTHER REVIEWS as it may ruin the movie for you. This is a 5 star suspense/drama/horror/mystery. Just go watch it. Knowing about the movie will simply ruin the ending. Trust me. Just watch it, don't even read the box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don't. September 5, 2010
By JGC
Format:DVD
I just watched "The Uninvited" for the first time and I really enjoyed it. It's sort of like 3 movies in one because it is layered with a lot of depth and character development. It's like looking at an intricate picture; each time you stare at it the picture looks different because you're watching it from a different angle.

Emily Browning played Anna impeccably. She totally captured all of the emotion, terror and fear that this young girl was experiencing throughout the entire movie. Elizabeth Banks, playing Rachael (the resident home wrecker) was also wonderful to watch because some of her lines and mannerisms were so outrageous and over-the-top (I loved the part when they had the fancy dinner engagement and she went off in the kitchen).

Some have described "The Uninvited" as a "horror" movie. As someone that has seen my fair share of horror I don't know how much it would fit into that category. The movie is certainly creepy, and very suspenseful and eventful, which had a lot to do with Emily Browning's character and Arielle Kebbel (as her sister Alex) who was also fantastic.

When I first watched this movie I didn't hate the Rachael character as much as I hated the father (David Strathairn). He just seemed so out of touch with his daughters and their own needs and was only thinking of himself. And perhaps to make the story flow a little more seamless the father was often missing in action which allowed the girls and Rachael to take over the burden of rounding out and shaping the plot. But after I watched this movie again I had a much different perspective, he seemed much more multifaceted and dimensional than I had first thought him to be.

"The Uninvited" is currently in rotation on Home Box so if you have a chance to watch it I certainly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Twist January 4, 2011
Format:DVD
Not really sure why it looks like it's cold in the poster because the movie is not at all like that. Just a little side comment to get us started.

I watched this movie last night with a few friends; 2 of which had already seen it so I knew a scary moment was coming when they would cover their eyes.

This always helps as I don't enjoy scary movies.

The Uninvited is about a girl whose mother died in a fire, her father is living with the live-in nurse, and the sisters believe the nurse killer their mother.

Starring Emily Browning as Anna, the main character, who just got home from the nut house and begins to have dreams/visions of her dead, burned mother along with three children who seem to have a connection to it all (think Stephen King's The Shining).

David Strathairn as her father: maybe he killed his wife...they did it before when the good guy actor plays the villain (What Lies Beneath)

and Elizabeth Banks (Betty Brant in Spider-Man) as the new girlfriend/fiancee.

This is a psychological thriller that has a self-promoted twist ending. You may see it coming if you pay close enough attention throughout the film.

With some situational cussing (in fear) and some sexual content (looking through keyholes), this movie didn't quite leave a lasting impression. The twist was nice but I'd have to watch it again to catch everything.

And I don't think I'd care to do that.
