The Uninvited is yet another Asian horror remake. You’d think a horror movie would be easy to make and be somewhat original. I guess not! The movie is about a mental girl named Anna, who witnessed her mom die in an explosion. She gets released from the looney bin to live with her Father in the woods of Maine. Then crazy crap starts to happen and ghost appear, and scream out murder and yadda yadda yadda, spooky things start to happen.

Christopher Young continues his streak of composing horror flicks with The Uninvited. He must really enjoy composing haunting scores like this one. Most of the tracks are really quiet, with a slight female choir singing in the background. There’s just a lot of light singing, adding to the atmosphere and creepiness to the movie. I got to the track “Cry of Love” and voices started to talk and I got creeped out. I had to skip that track and others with the talking in it because it was too creepy for me. It doesn’t help that I’m alone by myself, in my apartment during the night time. If the rest of the album sounded like the end title track “Tale of Two Sisters,” I would have liked this more.

Bottom Line: Moody and haunting score, but not really worth listening to.
Notable Tracks: What Have We Done, Tale of Two Sisters
