Welcomed surprise in form of psychological thriller-horror
To say that this movie is nothing like newer horror flicks would be a lie, it contains a fairly big part that is same as in every newer American thriller-horror. I have already seen the same or almost the same story about a dozen times before, this type of story can be also used in crime-dramas, natural-thrillers, and supernatural thriller-horrors which this movie is. So after i realized what the story is all about, which took me couple of first minutes, i thought this movie is gonna be predictable, boring and full of clichés, and it apparently wasn't. The thing that bugs me the most about 'The Uninvited' is those "scary" scenes that look exactly the same as in every Japanese style horror flick(e.g. 'The Grudge', 'The Unborn', 'One Missed Call'), seriously when are they gonna make some original scary scenes with original scary stuff and not just the same ol' same ol' "sound goes eerie and louder, signal for a pale screaming person to come out of the dark, make a scary face and disappear", i think every horror fan had just about enough of that. Despite those cliché scary scenes, story takes a very smart and interesting twist at the end, and that is something that not all new horror movies have. Acting is very well done, fairly below usual cheesiness in these kind of movies which is very much appreciated. A "MUST SEE" thriller-horror for all the hardcore new style horror viewers, and also recommended for everyone else.
