The Uninvited (2009)


My Rating: 3/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “A Psycho treat, but not at all near A TALE OF 2 SISTERS!”

They say you can never go home again…because you never know when the ghosts of murders past are waiting to shatter the present. Such is the case in THE UNINVITED, an eerie and not-so-family-friendly entry in Hollywood’s ongoing fascination with remaking Asian horror films.

Based on the South Korean chiller A TALE OF TWO SISTERS, the film first introduces us to troubled teen Anna (Emily Browning) as she prepares to be released from a psychiatric institution. Having witnessed the accidental death of her ailing mother, and having been saved from a subsequent suicide attempt, Anna knows that the road to recovery will be long and bumpy.

The Uninvited

Making the path more treacherous is the presence of Rachel (Elizabeth Banks), the mother’s nursemaid who has now become Anna’s father’s soon-to-be wife. Already bound by their resentment of her, Anna and older sister, Alex (Arielle Kebbel), come to suspect Rachel of foul play when Anna is visited by the ghost of their dead mother. But as Anna and Alex prepare to reveal who Rachel really is, a more terrifying truth threatens to emerge and destroy the family forever. Directed by the Guard Brothers (Charles and Thomas), THE UNINVITED benefits from a strong mix of both established and up-and-coming actors. The result is a briskly paced tale of revenge that will leave viewers guessing until the final, fatal twist, and prove the validity of that other old saying: Every family has a skeleton (or more) in its closet.
