The Uninvited is a 2009 American psychological horror film, also a remake of the 2003 South Korean K-Horror film A Tale of Two Sisters. It is unrelated to another 2003 Korean horror film, a 1944 American film, and a 2008 American film, all of which have the same name.
Anna (Emily Browning) has been in a psychiatric institution for ten months, following her suicide attempt after her terminally ill mother died in a boathouse fire. Upon her discharge, she has no memory of the event but frequently suffers related nightmares. While packing, Anna is startled by a disturbing, talkative patient from the room across the hall. Shortly after, she leaves with her father, Steven (David Strathairn), a writer who has dedicated his latest book to Anna and her sister.
