Filmmaking duo Thomas and Charles Guard make their feature directorial debuts as the co-directors of this remake of Kim Jee-woon's 2003 Korean film A Tale of Two Sisters. Produced by Asian horror remake king Roy Lee, The Uninvited tells the story of a young girl named Anna (Emily Browning), who was admitted into a mental hospital following the death of her biological mother. Returning home some time later, Anna is shocked to discover that her father (David Strathairn) has recently gotten engaged to Rachel (Elizabeth Banks), her mother's former nurse. Anna's suspicions about Rachel are soon confirmed when her mother reaches out from the beyond to deliver a stark warning, prompting the young girl and her sister (Arielle Kebbel) to try and convince their father that Rachel is not who she appears to be. As the situation in the once-peaceful household rapidly begins to deteriorate, Rachel's true colors finally begin boiling to the surface. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Worth inviting to see... by Emosjrny April 29, 2009 - 9:37 AM PDT

First off, "TU" is your basic "nasty step-mother/psycho daughter" suspence thriller very much along the lines of "Poison Ivy" or "The Crush" with some horror trappings (dreams of dead children, the deceased mom scrapping around the bedroom in the dark) thrown in for good measure but it works. Since I haven't seen the original Korean film "A Tale of Two Sisters" of which the film is an Americanization of, I can't compare but on it's own merits, it works pretty well. It's young leads Browning and Kebbel have great on screen chemistry and the Guard brothers are no doubt talent to look after.
