When "The Uninvited" came out a few months back, I had this to say:
it's unfortunate that "The Uninvited" is showing up so late in the cycle, because although problematic in a few areas, it more than serves as a breath of fresh air in a tired, tired subgenre.
Now comes news of the impending DVD and Bluray release on April 28th, 2009, and I'm honestly interested in giving it one more go-round to see if it holds up. Specifically, I would really like to get a look at the "alternate ending", considering how twisty the theatrical one was. In case you missed it, here's the synopsis:
The terrifying psychological thriller THE UNINVITED makes a haunting appearance on DVD and Blu-ray April 28, 2009 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Called “creepy and intense” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV), the film stars Emily Browning (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events) as Anna, a girl who is driven by her mother’s ghost to investigate her untimely death. When her father (David Strathairn, The Spiderwick Chronicles) becomes engaged to Rachel (Elizabeth Banks, Role Models), her mother’s former nurse, Anna and her sister (Arielle Kebbel, The Grudge 2) look into Rachel’s past and begin to suspect that she is not what she seems. As horrifying truths are revealed, Anna becomes locked in a deadly battle with a shocking conclusion.
The feature set for the DVD and Bluray are identical, and include the following:
