Default 'The Uninvited' - High-Def Digest Review

Tom has reviewed 'The Uninvited.' He says this isn't a bad thriller, just not an original one. This Blu-ray has very good video and audio but some paltry extras. This is a rental through and through.

Yeah, it could have been much worse and therefore I was also pleasantly surprised. The older sister and Liz Banks are wonderful to look at too so that was a bonus.

Definitely worth a watch, IMO.

I have been excited for this movie...yet I have still not see it. It's been getting a lot of great reviews, one from Roger Ebert himself!

I didn't think Dreamworks could fuck this up since it wasn't such a culturally sensitive movie like "My Sassy Girl" and dependent on those devices to be more poignant. Sorry to hear I'm wrong and Dreamworks DID fuck up this remake by the review.
The original movie, which I advise you ALL to see, has a stellar minimal soundtrack and is one big mindfuck. I highly suggest you see the original first. My only lamentation in that is since Tartan is gone we have YET to see this released on Blu-ray. When it is I will only accept a Lossless soundtrack as well since anything less would be criminal.
Don't soil your experience of seeing the original by watching the knockoff first.
