The Uninvited

The brother directing team of Charles and Thomas Guard delivered a well-done and finely paced thriller. I use thriller specifically because of the ending that was perfectly executed and revealed itself quite nicely. I went in to this expecting another J-Horror remake and got something back better and much more interesting. Emily Browning, of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, returns to the horror genre with a great performance in this sophomore effort - her first was as young Caitlin Greene in Darkness Falls. Arielle Kebbel, last seen in The Grudge 2, and Elizabeth Banks, who starred in Slither, round out the female cast and deserve kudos on their performances as well.
