Pretty Ordinary - Mick Jordan

Viewer Rating:Mick Jordan has rated The Uninvited rating: 2 Star

Having witnessed her mother's death in an explosion Anna has been understandably traumatised and has spent 10 months in a psychiatric hospital recovering. When she returns to the family home she finds that Mommy's former nurse has become Daddy's current girlfriend. Something neither she nor her sister Alex are too happy about. They soon start to believe that she killed their mother and now has similar plans for them. The fact that Anna's mother appears to her (a lot) wailing and screaming and pointing fingers convinces them further and they set out to stop her. 'The Uninvited' isn't a particularly bad film, but it's not a particularly good one either. It's just ordinary. It plods along without any real pacing or tension throwing in a few horror sequences that you know are going to end with everything back to normal as soon as Anna blinks. All the old clichés are rolled out including the children are scary one first used in 'The Shining'. Inevitably there is a major twist at the end that will knock you sideways and while it is well handled it is as so much else in the film nothing new. I can think of a number of other films which used a variation of this climax and some did it better.
