[TALK OF THE TOWN]Haunting tale of mother’s death gets Hollywood makeover
Keep your eyes wide open for “The Uninvited,” a Hollywood remake of the Korean horror film, “A Tale of Two Sisters” (2003).
The remake, directed by Charles Guard and Thomas Guard, and starring Emily Browning and Elizabeth Banks, will be released next Friday in U.S. theaters.
The story revolves around Anna (Browning) who suffers mentally after her mother’s tragic death.
Anna returns home after receiving treatment in the hospital, but she suffers even more after she finds out that her father (David Strathairn) is dating Rachel (Banks), a hospital nurse who looked after her mother.
Every night, Anna is constantly awakened by her mother’s ghost who warns her anxious and vulnerable daughter about Rachel.
There have been several successful Hollywood remakes of Korean films: “The Lake House” (2006), a remake of the Korean drama film “Il Mare” (2000); and “Mirror” (2008), a remake of the horror thriller “Into the Mirror” (2003).
