Critic Reviews for The Uninvited
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.
It's a slick, bloodless affair that's neither as suggestive as the classic general-audiences ghost stories of the past, nor as intense as a hard-R would allow it to be.
The Uninvited is a mess of styles and stolen ideas, including a plot twist that would make M. Night Shyamalan roll his eyes and dialogue straight from a CW scene generator.
In truth it's just a gimmicky thriller that doesn't play fair with the audience.
Audience Reviews for The Uninvited
A rare case of American remake that I find better than the original film, since the tension is carried out much more carefully here and with a more concise plot that wisely avoids the many twists in Kim Ji-Woon's story and presents a more compelling reason to leave us scared.
Wastes two very good performers, Elizabeth Banks and David Strathairn, in a murky silly wannabe thriller.
The 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.
