The Uninvited is coming out this Friday, and I will NOT see it. Why? Because it doesn't make any sense.
Here's the plot: Anna Rydell returns home to her sister (and best friend) Alex after a stint in a mental hospital, though her recovery is jeopardized thanks to her cruel stepmother, aloof father, and the presence of a ghost in their home. This ghost gives clues about the stepmother/babysitter character and want her to pay.
But here's my question: If a ghost wants revenge, why can he/she just do it the damn thing by themselves?
I've always hated the idea of a ghost who wants revenge, uses a living person to do it for them. If I was a ghost, I would handle my business without help. I'm a frakking GHOST, I'm supernatural! I wouldn't need a human's help.
And this movie...what silly crap is this? It looks like What Lies Beneath + The Babysitter + A broke ass The Ring. Come on, people...Give me Horror!
