Editorial Reviews

Don't turn around.
 
In the tradition of Rosemary s Baby, psychological horror film The Uninvited reveals a new wife who may become a mother whether she wants to or not. Lee (Marguerite Moreau of the new NBC hit Parenthood) has finally recovered from a rare illness akin to agoraphobia. Instead of fearing open spaces, Lee has been frightened by any too-great distance between herself and other objects. So the warm embrace of documentary filmmaker and husband Nick (Colin Hay of the Grammy-winning band Men At Work) has proven the perfect cure. But their fresh start in a quiet, isolated home is shattered by intense visions from Lee s past, an unhinged former assistant of Nick s, Satanists and Lee s growing realization that the forces of evil she senses around her aren t so uninvited after all. Writer-director Bob Badway s film debut offers horror fans the chance to catch a bold new talent in the making. Consider yourself...invited.

The Uninvited is a really bad film with perhaps the most poorly executed ending imaginable. It's about a young woman who has a phobia where she's afraid of wide open spaces. This means she's forced to walk through her house starring closely at walls and everything else to avoid having to glance over at the larger areas of her home. Eventually however, this phobia magically disappears when her life is in danger. This is either because she realizes her life is more important than a phobia, or because of a major plot flaw. You decide. I mean, in the beginning she has to hide behind doors because she can't bare to look at peoples faces on the other side, but suddenly when things get chaotic, she stops having this problem. What? We can only assume that the need for survival outweighs everything else.

The storyline is "my God this can't be possible" and "What WERE the writers thinking?" awful. The thing is, as a viewer, you're never sure if the home the girl is staying in is actually haunted or whether this is all part of the girls phobia and hallucinations. To give one example, she gets these over the phone therapy sessions but on one occasion the walls start changing and get all weird. Are the ghosts responsible for this change or are the girls phobia issues coming into the picture again? You're constantly deciding -in the most melodramatic way possible- which one it is for the entire film. Since 7 people died in her home, you assume it's ghosts haunting the place but... this phobia means you're never really sure.

This brings me to my next problem- the storyline absolutely *crawls*.

The terrible titled "The Uninvited" -- (really? That was the best title you could come up with?) -- actually is a well crafted thriller that's very slow and moody and ultimately doesn't go anywhere.

It's a mix of Repulsion & Let's Scare Jessica to Death & See No Evil (Mia Farrow.)

But while it borrows from all three films, it never locks into place to tell a coherent story. But there is a solid 40 or 50 mins worth of creep in this, just no payoff.

The only thing scary was the music, but they managed to ruined that by using it constantly. The pacing of this film was horrible ... simple S-L-O-W. It was exhausting waiting for something......anything.....to happen! The ghosts looked slapped together by entry-level makeup artists. There was no rhyme nor reason when or why they would appear...no change in the music....no scary build up. There was just let-down after let-down. A woman suffering from severe agoraphobia was left in her home alone for a long period of time by her husband. At one point she reaches out from beneath her covers (on her bed) for something on the nightstand and a hand grabs her wrist. NOTHING happens! She doesn't jump up and SCREAM...she doesn't get up and run. That pretty much sums up this movie. Sad.

Beginning was interesting, young woman through therapy conquers a bizarre phobia of seeing too much space. She marries the man who filmed her documentary. That's when the movie tanks. It's a hot, SLOW mess of disjointed clips and not really scary moments that culminate in.... I don't even know what.

I was duped; tonight I was going to watch some horror films, even if they were bad, and the cable listing for this movie labeled it as the 2009 version of The Uninvited starring Emily Browning.

This one started off in a rather intriguing way, with an extended documentary sequence of the main character, Lee, and her therapy sessions to overcome a crippling fear of open spaces, so bad that in order for her to get across rooms of the house, she has to be face to face with the wall, eyes closed, feeling her way around. And this was apparently triggered by ghosts, or her supposed encounter with a ghost as a child.

After that, we see her in a house with her husband, apparently having recovered. But as soon as her friend tells her over webcam conversation that their house was sight to many old deaths, she starts relapsing and seeing ghosts.

I could've been fooled at this point by the movie being extremely low-budget, but what makes or breaks a director is what they do with what little they have, and the director of this film bombed badly.

Steven Spielberg kept the shark from "Jaws" off screen as much as possible, because he knew that if the audience got a good look at it, they would see how cheaply it was made and it would break the immersion.

This guy does the exact opposite of that.

Similarly, in many horror films that rely on a monster or on ghosts or some sight-gag, they know to keep them quick, sudden, and gone in a flash, rather than lingering too long on the face of a monster. The longer you look at a spooky ghost or monster in a horror movie, it seems, the more you become desensitized to it, no matter horrifying the costume/makeup/prosthetics/CG is.

This guy does the exact opposite of this.
