Well, here is part two of my underrated horror movies. I hope some people find these amusing, because I realized that in part one, my dialogue was a bit on the funny side. I don’t know, I like to bring humor to my small reviews.
Anyway, here is part two. I hope you enjoy.
9. The Uninvited (2009)
This is one of the more mild movies on this list. It is technically a horror movie, but it is really more psychological thriller. The Uninvited is a remake of the South Korean horror movie: “A Tale of Two Sisters”. I remember watching this movie over and over the year it came out and I got it on DVD, though I have no idea whatever happened to said DVD, anyway, I liked that it was more mild and had shocking moments here and there, because it reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock’s use of horror, where there is so much tension built up, leaving you vulnerable to the actual scares when you’re at the edge of your seat.
It stars Emily Browning, who I am absolutely obsessed with and have been since I saw her in Ghost Ship, when I was in first grade. She plays the character, Anna, who has just been released from a psychiatric hospital, after attempting to kill herself. When she returns home, she discovers that her father is now dating the nurse who looked after her now deceased mother and soon believes that her mother did not die by accident, but actually at the hands of Rachel, played by the talented Elizabeth Banks. Anna and her sister, Alex soon try to find proof that Rachel is not who she says she is and is in fact responsible for the death of their mother.
I love this movie, because as I said, the tension is built up and when jump scares come, they are done tastefully. The acting is very great, especially from Elizabeth Banks who plays evil in a very subtle way that leaves her memerizing to watch.
The ending of this movie ends with a twist, which many can argue is fairly predictable, is actually very well fit for the tone, and as I said reminds me of Hitchcock. The ending is also done in a tasteful fashion that leaves it memorable by how sudden it is.
Definitely a must watch, especially on a rainy day, when you need a good horror mystery to satisfy your horror cravings.
