Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconJust another paint-by-numbers horror flick.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis is a well-crafted first feature by the Guard Brothers.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconPossessing a few decent scares but far more (unintentional) laughs, The Uninvited isn't as spooky as it should be and thus won't likely induce many later nightmares -- the true litmus test of a scary film.
