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.

1.0 out of 5 stars just awful December 1, 2012
Format:DVD
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*.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repulsion & Let's Scare Jessica to Death & See No Evil December 21, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Uninvited August 20, 2013
By GREEK
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
WOW!!! So not what I thought it would be...it is a little spooky but there are 2 movies with the same name. This "Uninvited" is kinda weird, kinda B rated. Even though it was late at night I still caught some mistakes. Again, not what I thought it would be. Product from seller was in very good condition but the movie kinda, sorry to say, sucked...it gave me a fright a handful of times but kinda a dumb plot. Definitely purchase items from this seller but I would not recommend this specific movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Colin Hay is the only plus. May 31, 2013

I watched it just for Colin, who I adore. None of the film makes sense, explains anything, or is worth seeing unless you're so high that anything will be cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Bad September 23, 2013
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good April 15, 2011
Format:DVD
While not quite worth $20.99 "The Uninvited" is an interesting little film which transcends 89 percent of the "horror" out there these days.

An obvious take off on "Rosemary's Baby", director Bob Badway is fairly unabashed in his attempt to reinvent the idea: a vulnerable young woman named Lee (Marguerite Moran) with a history of psychiatric distress coupled with a fear of everything (including space itself) marries her genuinely ominous shrink Nick, played very well by Colin Hay.

While patient/doctor relationships are never a good idea, this one goes *really* wrong. You kind of know the psychiatrist is a shady guy when he asks Lee to pawn her grandfather's rosary for a few bucks and consistently has other "patients" coming into their home.

You might compare this little indie quest for subtlety to a half decent remake of "Carnival of Souls". Ghouls and ghosties appear along with Old Scratch himself and there is a sort of magical realism about the whole thing--is this all happening in Lee's mind or is Nick really in league with Satan and using her to his own ends?

The chief problem with the movie is first off the derivative nature of the whole thing and second off Marguerite Moran. Her performance in this film is about as animated and energetic as a rock. She does very little but play the distressed female and not very well at that. Plus she looks a bit too put together to be a person who is afraid of space and time itself. Also, what exactly was intended by that ending?

This is worth a rental but not much more. An admirable attempt at reviving the Satanic renaissance of the 70's.
