An effective blend of thriller and horror.May 13, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
Poor remake of the Korean thriller.
As in the original, the film slyly manipulates the audience's perspective, and a brilliantly filmed climactic 'reveal' marks this British duo as a pair to watch.April 24, 2009 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…
The Uninvited is a little too mild-mannered to please any but the most vanilla of horror fans.
They are all just guests at a camp masked ball - poised to unveil themselves in a denouement that somehow manages to be more outlandish - and more comic - than all the bumps and rattles that went before.
Like its own Asian source, this movie has a big and elaborately planted twist up its sleeve, but this time around it leaves us feeling tricked and underwhelmed -- horror primly behaving itself as a peekaboo exercise in misdirection.
Audience Reviews for The Uninvited
Oct 25, 2015Surprisingly good. I wasn't too thrilled with this at first but it quickly picked up. I loved the ending.Stephen S Super Reviewer
Oct 25, 2014Though it's a bit formulaic at first, The Uninvited turns into an impressive psychological thriller. After being released from a psychiatric ward, Anna returns home and has a vision of her mother's spirit that causes her to suspect that her father's new girlfriend was behind her mother's death. Emily Browning, Elizabeth Banks, Arielle Kebbel, and David Strathairn lead the cast and give strong performances; particularly Browning and Kebbel, who are especially good together, having a real sisterly chemistry. And while the story seems to follow a predictable path, it leaves itself open to some interesting misleads and plot twists. The Uninvited takes a fairly rote murder mystery and turns it into something better than it otherwise ought to be.Dann M Super Reviewer
Feb 05, 2014Though I have already been aware of the film's ending since long before, I found myself still enjoying the movie experience. Also, I noticed that Emily Browning closely resembles Dianna Agron, and they are both very pretty.Maymay A Super Reviewer
Sep 24, 2012The Uninvited relies too heavily on cheesy dialogue, and jump scares to really be that frightening. It's predictable and unimaginative plot are silly, but the actors really do try their best with the material they are given. But alas, they can't save this mess. My friends and I saw the ending coming half-way through the film. This was an uninvited entry into the horror movie genre.Raymond W Super Reviewer
