Critic Reviews for The Uninvited
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.
Audience Reviews for The Uninvited
A rare case of American remake that I find better than the original film, since the tension is carried out much more carefully here and with a more concise plot that wisely avoids the many twists in Kim Ji-Woon's story and presents a more compelling reason to leave us scared.
Wastes two very good performers, Elizabeth Banks and David Strathairn, in a murky silly wannabe thriller.
The Uninvited relies too heavily on cheesy dialogue, and jump scares to really be that frightening. It's predictable and unimaginative plot are silly, but the actors really do try their best with the material they are given. But alas, they can't save this mess. My friends and I saw the ending coming half-way through the film. This was an uninvited entry into the horror movie genre.
