***Haunting mysteries on the coast of Maine with Emily Browning and Elizabeth Banks***
After her mother dies in a tragedy, a teen girl (Emily Browning) is sent to a mental hospital. Upon returning to her father’s mansion on the coast of Maine, she reunites with her older sister (Arielle Kebbel) and tries to get along with her dad’s new girlfriend (Elizabeth Banks), her mother’s former nurse, who appears to be taking over. David Strathairn plays the father, a successful author.
“The Uninvited” (2009) is a mystery/horror that combines elements of “The Sixth Sense” (1999), “Half Light” (2006) and “The Ring” (2002), although it’s a little more subdued than the latter. If you like the haunting tone of those movies and the spectacular locations of the latter two, you’ll appreciate it. Browning with her ultra-cute face was 20 during filming, but looks 14. Meanwhile Banks is effective as the biyatch gold-digger and Strathairn is convincing as the clueless father.
The story plays out in a too-predicable manner. If you saw the trailer beforehand it basically tells you everything you need to know. But not really: The last 15 minutes pulls the rug out with some surprising revelations. I heard there was a twist before viewing and went over various possibilities in my mind while watching, but the movie fooled me. Great job on this front. Not everything is as it appears. I’d say more, but I don’t want to spoil it.
My relatively high rating is due to the lingering power of the film’s message on individual perception. It’s potent and applicable stuff, expertly executed.
The film doesn’t overstay its welcome at a mere 1 hour, 27 minutes. It wasn’t shot in the Northeast, however, but obviously British Columbia (Bowen Island). It’s an American remake of the Korean film “A Tale of Two Sisters” (2003).
We survive by remembering. But sometimes we survive by forgetting.
The Uninvited is directed by The Guard Brothers and written by Craig Rosenberg, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard. It stars Emily Browning, Elizabeth Banks, Arielle Kebbel and David Strathairn. Music is by Christopher Young and cinematography by Daniel Landin.
A remake of Korean film “A Tale of Two Sisters”, plot finds Anna (Browning) released from a psychiatric institution, she was placed in there following a suicide attempt when her terminally mother died in a boathouse fire. Once home she begins to encounter bad dreams and supernatural visions…
It was yet another American remake of an Asian horror film, at a time when doing so was in vogue, unfortunately this is one of the weakest of the bunch. Not exactly terrible, it’s just so unoriginal and devoid of any suspense or chiiling atmosphere. In fact it feels more like a murder mystery piece but with a couple of spook scenes inserted into the narrative. Pic is predominantly saved by the finale, where the story unravels with some genuine surprises. Cast are all fine in perfs, even if Strathairn is utterly wasted in his under written role. 5/10
This was a pretty good fright flick. It kept the viewer engaged right up to the ending and while it seemed somewhat formulaic in terms of plot development and things that go bump in the night, it had plenty of scary moments and more than served its purpose, which was a few hours of entertainment.
Most of the movie deals with the relationship of sisters Anna and Alex with Rachel, the girlfriend of their father. Anna thinks Rachel murdered their late mother and possibly was behind some earlier unsolved murders. However, Anna was recently released from a mental institution and has some emotional issues that raises more suspicions about her than about Rachel. On the other hand, Rachel has some questionable aspects about her past that don’t seem quite right. This guessing game continues until the dramatic ending.
The screenplay was very good, the cinematography captured the rocky coastline of Maine nicely, and the film was helped by good performances from Elizabeth Banks as Rachel, David Strathairn as the father, and Emily Browning as Anna.
This was a good horror movie well worth checking out.
What A Waste of $4.50!!!!
Ugh. What has happened to the horror genre? “The Uninvited” looked like it might deliver and there for I saw it. Crap, what a waste of $4.50! I wish I could have that money back right about now. I was expecting a thriller that would me keep me guessing, maybe surprise me and of course scare me just a little at least. I was let down. We get a not so suspenseful ‘thriller/horror’ that to be honest didn’t scare me one little bit. Seriously. The performances are pathetic in my opinion and by half way through this flick I have already lost interest sad to say. There is some comic relief, one scene, including a vibrator, which doesn’t fit in. The vibrator was probably employed to wake up the audience members who, like me, we’re falling asleep half –way through. Sorry, didn’t work. The ending is what some people find so enjoyable about this flick, but I find it confusing as hell. So the girl is mental and she was imagining the entire story. This is a twist that for one thing is not original in the slightest, and two the filmmakers seem to forget if there is no engaging material for 90% of the movie, a plot twist isn’t going to change the final verdict.
