The Uninvited 2009 7 out of 10

The Univited  2009   7 out of 10

The movie is about a young girl that returns home from a mental hospital after trying to kill herself after her mother's death.  She returns to the home with her father and sister  and  soon to be stepmom (the nurse that used to care for her mom before she died that is now dating her father.)  Her mom's ghost is haunting the house and trying to tell her something.  The two sisters end up uncovering details about the nurse's past that lead to a confrontation between the sisters and the new stepmom to be.   It was near the end of the movie that I was ready to give this movie a 5 out of 10 and call it the uninspired instead of the uninvited,  but then it quickly turned a corner from the same old story that could have just as easily been a lifetime movie into a pretty cool flick.  The ending made the otherwise average movie worthwhile, and almost worth watching a second time just to see if I could spot the clues the second time around.  A good solid performance by Emily Brown as the main character.
