The Uninvited (2009)

A pretty decent horror flick. A teenage girl, institutionalized after an accident kills her mom, returns home to her lakeside house, her novelist father, and his new girlfriend (Elizabeth Banks channeling a Stepford wife). Well-done and creepy but with a few too many tagged-on scares and far too many plot holes.

(This is apparently, and not surprisingly, a remake of a Korean horror film from 2003 called Janghwa, Hongryeon. Is it really so difficult to come up with ideas for supernatural horror films and gothic thrillers that American screenwriters need to remake every half-decent international horror film?)
