The Uninvited opens January 30

Charles Guard and Thomas Guard direct Emily Browning, Arielle Kebbel, and Elizabeth Banks in this DreamWorks remake of the art house Korean ghost story A TALE OF TWO SISTERS. After her mother’s death and her subsequent hospital stay, Anna Rydell (Browning) returns home to be with her sister (Krebbel) and her father (Strathairn), who has become engaged to Rachel (Banks), her mother’s former nurse. During her first night back, Anna is visited by her mother’s ghost, who reveals that the new woman in her father’s life is not who she pretends to be, leading to a fateful confrontation between the women of the house. The film was shot as A TALE OF TWO SISTERS and was supposed to come out last year, but DreamWorks delayed release and changed the title – perhaps after seeing the poor results of the three Asian horror remakes that came out in 2008 (ONE MISSED CALL, THE EYE, and SHUTTER). Release date: January 30.
