The Uninvited

Despite the headache that has been haunting me the past two days, I decided to go see The Uninvited this morning.  It’s tough to stay away from an Elizabeth Banks movie.  I forget when I became a fan of hers.  I remember that I really enjoyed her guest stint on Scrubs, but I can’t remember if I had seen her in something before that or not.

One of my favorite moments in the trailers for this movie was when Elizabeth Banks would say, “I won’t allow it.” Just the way it rolled off of her tongue was so awesome. For some reason though, it came off more naturally in the movie.

Enough about her, though.  The movie as a whole was good.  The story was intriguing and very mysterious. The way it is played out reminds me of The Messengers, but once you find out what’s really going on, it almost reminds me more of another movie… that I won’t mention otherwise I’ll give too much away.  I’m just glad that things are explained at the end so that you can walk away satisfied instead of scratching your head.
