The only genuinely startling moments come via the deafening sound effects that accompany a large roast hitting the floor and Anna scraping metal hangers along a clothing rack.

It's not original, it's not especially clever and the twist won't make you want to watch it again, but hey - at least it wasn't The Unborn.

The Uninvited may strike even viewers who don't know the original as disarmingly familiar.

This is one of those "gotcha!" movies where nothing you see can be believed.

Take a 'concept', strip it bare of all layers of meaning, remake it with added genre cliches and scantily clad American teens in order to a 'wider audience'. Voila.

As far as PG-13 Americanizations of Asian shockers go, it's about 70 percent passable

Just to set the taste level, the first line in The Uninvited is 'I love you, I have a condom.' Yep, the bar is already lowered.

A mild improvement over its nigh unwatchable predecessor...

Suffers from a meekness -- its scares never dig deep and are more sensational than disturbing, and its storyline has been modified to something more conventional.

The latest teen horror, directed by Charles and Thomas Guard, has a bit more patience than such films usually display.

It is less bloody and less ambiguous than the original.

The Uninvited is workmanlike and has a twist too many, but it's always entertaining and kept afloat by three game leading ladies and competent hands behind the camera.

Unremarkable, unimaginative and unnecessary. Check out the superior original instead.

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.

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.

There should be enough to keep the teen audience the film is clearly targeted at on their toes, although aficionados of the genre will no doubt be bored to death.
