A Tale of Two Sisters redo

A Tale of Two Sisters, the chilling story of sisters returning home after a stay in a mental hospital, became a smash hit in Korea in 2003. Dreamworks aims to release its American remake,
The Uninvited, in January 2009. The Ring and The Grudge proved remakes can be faithful to the Asian originals without spoon feeding clues to audiences. The Uninvited disregards this concept. For some lame reason the mysterious figure that creeps along the floors in the Korean original talks to characters in The Univited. In one scene she hisses, "You're next!" Ugh. She must mean you're the next one to get up and leave the theater early.
