Format: DVD
`The Uninvited' is the US remake of Korean horror film A Tale of Two Sisters and tells the story of Anna, a young girl who has been in a mental institution for the past 10 months since her ill mother dies in a mysterious house fire. Her father now is living with his new girlfriend who was also Anna's mother's nurse before her death. Anna and her sister Alex believe that their father's new girlfriend may be the reason for the fire and also fear what plans she has in store for them too, especially after Anna begins to receive visits from the ghost of her dead mother.

I watched this film not expecting much as generally US remakes of J-Horror classics tend to be pretty rubbish - just look at the awful Ring, Grudge, Shutter and One Missed Call remakes. This however was surprisingly excellent. The story gripped me from the opening scene, combining psychological horror with mystery and suspense, this film really did make the most of a decent plotline and turned it into a genuinely scary and well thought out thriller. The acting was very good - I felt the relationship between the two sisters as well as the relationship with their love-blind father was very believable. The setting was very picturesque with some very impressive camerawork displaying the beautiful ocean view during the daytime scenes then turning it into a very dark and creepy haunted house feel to it during the night-time scenes. The story itself could have worked without the ghost elements of it too but this just made the film all the more scary. I also really didn't expect any of the surprises at all and was actually shocked by the ending which I found to be incredibly unpredictable and well done.

This is a well crafted and creepily effective haunted house tale.
Anna is in her late teens and has spent the last ten months in a psychiatric hospital. Her mother died ten months earlier in a house fire and Anna suffered a nervous breakdown. Upon discharge from the hospital she returns home to her father, who's a successful, fifty-something novelist and lives in an amazing shoreside mansion. Her father has formed a relationship with a very pretty, thirty-something trophy partner, Rachel, and Anna finds it very difficult to adjust to the new female presence in the house. Anna has a similarly aged sister named Alex, who reveals that their father was seeing Rachel even before their mum died.
Anna starts having visions of the ghost of her dead mother, and both she and her sister start to believe that the explosion which killed their mum perhaps wasn't a tragic accident...
The acting is first rate, especially the lead performance by Anna, who's a feisty, determined and attractive character, desperate to solve the riddle of what happened to her mother. The relationship she has with her equally spirited sister is touchingly drawn. The setting in a spectacular seaside mansion works perfectly - during daylight hours, it creates the impression of a halcyonic existence, but at night, it becomes a dark, foreboding harbinger of terrors. Rachel is a complex mix of well meaning and Machiavellian, whilst her sugar daddy is completely love blind, and tends to side with his girlfriend rather than the daughters.
This film is very tense and startled me on several occasions. It uses misdirection extremely cleverly, and it had me guessing about the outcome right up until the very end.

Fantasic film this film really suprised me it had brilliant acting throughout and a great story line and fantastic twist, i tend to like what i like and if a film is slow getting into it, it really puts me off watching it again but this had fantastic thrills all the way through it and jump out of your skin moments, then to top it off some really chilling ghost parts in it the twist is probably the best one I have ever seen. I am not kidding this film will stick in your mind for ages and believe me you will be sleeping with the light on for a few nights!! :)One to watch again and again! x

Anna returns home after being institutionalised and tries to adapt to her new life. Her father Steven is now living with her late mother's nurse, Rachel Summer and both Anna and her sister Alex believe Rachel was responsible for her mother's death in a boathouse fire the year before.

Soon after her arrival, Anna also begins to receive warnings from her late mothers spirit, and three children who are always silent but point her to a tragedy that occurred years before in a nearby county.

The evidence she and Alex gather all point to Rachel having a secret past and that she is now living under an assumed identity. Just as she believes she has all of the evidence needed against Rachel, new information comes to light that puts earlier events in a different light....

Its a remake of a J-horror, it was made in the late noughties, it was made for the teens, and guess what, if you've seen The Eye, Dark Water, Prom Night, or any remake in this time, you realise that its not very good, despite the richness of the cast.

The story is good, its a mystery, and there are lots of red herrings that point you in the wrong direction, but from the upstart, you know Elizabeth Banks has nothing to do with the main plot.

If you are wise to these so called movies, you can see the films finale a mile off, and what makes it worse is Straitherns face come the final reveal. Instead of a Sixth Sense type shock, the film commands guffaws, as it's just handled very clunkily.

The cast are fine, but the overall product is very processed.

Don't bother.
