(2003) A Tale of Two Sisters

Both A Tale of Two Sisters and the American remake The Uninvited are somewhat predictable in nature, with the difference being that the remake lacks the original’s depth of emotion. I really felt a strong message with this film, despite its events seeming overly ambiguous at times.

So you’re saying it’s both predictable and confusing? Make up your mind faggot. All homophobia aside, I’m basically just saying I put together the general idea early on but was confused by specific scenes and in some ways, I still am.

The evil stepmom is such a great exploitation lure for horror movies. I don’t even have a stepmom and I fucking hate her. It’s also a character that even without those kind of campy characteristics, represents an traumatic break in a family. If you’re a step parent you’re basically like a living emotional scar.

The acting is incredible here, especially from the two girls, although I did have to turn my volume down when they screamed; it’s ear piercing. All in all, this is an excellent movie and a staple in the Asian horror genre that shouldn’t be overlooked.

7.5/10
