    The Uninvited is a flawed production, but gratifying in the way it delivers. The interesting and unique elements of the movie effectively compensate for the formulaic way in which the plot develops.

    A remake of the 2003 Korean horror film "A Tale of Two Sisters," The Uninvited is a Hand That Rocks the Cradle–type thriller that's been dressed up as a horror movie.

    Don't be too quick to turn down The Uninvited. A stylish horror thriller in the vein of "The Ring," it's well-acted, frightening and handsomely produced

    The horror flick The Uninvited is not unclever - but it is unoriginal.
  5. The plot borrows as freely from Hitchcock and Henry James as from the Bard of Avon, and doesn't make scrupulous sense, though I'd have to see the film again, which I won't do, to make sure it doesn't cheat.

    Poor remake of the Korean thriller.
  7. Horror standbys like mangled corpses and stone-faced children pop up regularly, but sibling directors Charles and Thomas Guard haven't quite nailed the genre's rhythms.

    bunch of 'scary' movie cliches strung together, and hence not frightening at all... but as a movie it was fantastic! great acting bunch of 'scary' movie cliches strung together, and hence not frightening at all... but as a movie it was fantastic! great acting by the australian girl from 'the series of unfortunate events', and a surprising (at least to me it was...) twist at the end. very underrated movie, with scores from the stupid 'professional' movie critics that are much lower than it deserves.

    If you don't see it in the theater then make sure you catch it on dvd. Pretty cool flick that makes you think you know what is going on If you don't see it in the theater then make sure you catch it on dvd. Pretty cool flick that makes you think you know what is going on and you want to yell at the characters for doing the stupidest things and then at the end your like, ohhhh....that's what was going on! The only problem is that now I need to re-watch it so that I can see if the story holds water when you know what's going on........and I will be waiting for dvd to do that. Expand

The crowd likes movies much worse saying that is great. The big problem with this movie was playing guess in the face of the viewer all the time that her stepmother was bad, I can not remember if but... manipulate our thought. That thing to bet the killer, you know? The problem is that the film always pointed in the same direction, so the movie can give you a big surprise ending, which I guessed at parts, the other part that I didn't serve was really shocking... It's a great film, which suffers a lot yes, but worth being seen. I've watched this movie so many times coz I love it so much! Expand
