The Uninvited (2009) – IMDb

The death of a parent is always hard. When it’s accompanied by a mental break, it’s even harder. Teenagers can be very prone to this sort of interaction, so when this little girl gets to go home finally after the death of her mother, it’s quite a shock to her system to see how much home has changed.

This is really more of a mystery/suspense than what I consider true horror. But it’s definitely not a bad movie. There’s enough little clues and references for the people who are really watching to catch the ideas, but much like Fight Club, it doesn’t all come out until the very end.

It’s a strong movie, but as I said, not really what I’d consider horror. For that I give it 3 blood kitties – it’s definitely worth a watch, and a very easy re-watch, it’s just not fantastic horror by any stretch of the imagination.
