When I first saw the previews for The Uninvited I thought it was going to be a horrible movie, but I soon found that it was the exact opposite of that. The movie starts off pretty intense, which really grabs the viewer making them want to watch more. I personally enjoy when a movie does this; it's like the attention grabber in an essay. Although the intense beginning had me wanting more I felt the movie was very predictable. This was a bit of a disappointment because I could already easily predict the ending of the movie about half an hour into it. To many movie goers this is disappointing because you're basically sitting there watching as your predictions are acted out. Towards the end of the movie when as I thought to myself "what a waste of time," the producers threw a twist at me that I never saw coming. I don't want to spoil the movie for you so let's just say this single twist instantly added The Uninvited to my list of favorite horror movies.
Looking For A Movie? To all the guy's out there looking for a good movie to bring your girl to, I highly suggest bringing them to watch The Uninvited . The scary scenes will have them holding on to you like there's no tomorrow. As for the girls out their looking for a movie to make their guys scream girlier than them I also suggest brining them to The Uninvited . Ha-ha. And for those who have no one to bring, I suggest you find someone, because you'll need them!
If you liked the star performances in this movie check out some of their other great movies:
Zack and Miri Make A Porno
The 40-Year Old Virgin
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
The South Korean film A Tale of Two Sisters was the basis for The Uninvited (TLA Releasing)
Did You Know? The Uninvited (PG-13 for violent and disturbing images, thematic material, sexual content, language and teen drinking) is yet another American remake of an Asian horror film just like the popular American remakes The Ring and The Grudge . The original film is a Korean film called A Tale of Two Sisters released in 2007 and directed by Kim Ji-woon. Although I usually like the originals over remakes, I found The Uninvited to generally be a better movie than A Tale of Two Sisters . Keep in mind the producers of The Uninvited had a sturdy base to build off of and over a year to improve it. I found that The Uninvited was just generally easier to follow than A Tale of Two Sisters . Although I still suggest you watch A Tale of two Sisters so you can decide for yourself which you think is better.
