Director: Lee Su-yeon. Review: Adam Wing.
A strange thing happened to me whilst watching The Uninvited, on three separate occasions I found myself falling asleep during the course of the movie. Not a unique occurrence I’m sure you’ll agree, it has after all been a very long week, but not the most positive of endorsements either. The interesting thing is, one of the lead characters in the film suffers from narcolepsy, coincidence or curse? You decide. The Uninvited is a 2003 Korean horror/drama directed by Lee Su-yeon, not to be confused with the 2009 Hollywood remake of A Tale Of Two Sisters, also entitled The Uninvited. This particular unwelcome guest stars Jeon Ji-hyun (My Sassy Girl) and Park Shin-yang (The Big Swindle), and tells the tale of an interior decorator that witnesses the death of two children on a subway journey home.
Jung-Won is not a well man. His wedding is fast approaching and like any unsuspecting guy just about ready to take the plunge, he is suffering from inexplicable anxiety and sleepless nights. One evening Jung-Won falls asleep on the subway home, almost missing his stop. As he comes round he sees two young girls asleep on the seat next to him, in his haste to get off the train he pays little attention to the fact that they are alone. Things get worse when he arrives home to find his wife-to-be has been flicking through the Ikea catalogue again, bringing home an unusual metal dining table, and probably some cushions too. At work the next day, whilst renovating a psychiatrist's office, he hears an item on the radio about two young girls found poisoned on a subway train. Falling debris from the ceiling intervenes and after a trip to the local hospital he returns home to find the two dead girls sat at his shiny new table. That’s when things start to get really weird…Continue reading review.
