Editorial Reviews

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
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
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
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.

After a fatal accident that leaves her mother dead, Anna is released from a mental hospital only to find her father has been dating her mother's nurse, Rachel. Anna begins to have haunting visions that may link Rachel to the accident. The Uninvited is a solid horror film, although very predictable.

This is a remake of "A Tale of Two Sisters"; the stories aren't exactly the same, but they share many similarities. This film consists of some creepy imagery, jump-scares, and mystery; it's balanced well enough, and moves at a moderate pace. The plot twist is very predictable - whether you've seen the original or not - as it frequently drops obvious hints and it's usually the first guess most people think of when they know a twist is coming. Regardless, the ending is also good. The acting was also great. Not a very memorable film, but not a waste of time - of course, if you have time to spare, there're plenty of better horror films to watch.

Overall, The Uninvited is a good horror film, but very predictable and forgettable; if you watch a lot of films, you've likely watched a film like this before. I recommend a purchase for hardcore fans of the genre, a rental otherwise.

The Uninvited has some disturbing imagery, violence and blood.

4.0 out of 5 stars POIGNANT SUSPENSE/HORROR December 16, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed this movie. I always love a twist ending, one that I don't see until the last few minutes or the film, and this movie delivered that beautifully.

Thinking people who enjoy total misdirection of their emotions and perceptions right up to the climax will love this one.
