Matt: I love you... I have a condom.
The Uninvited (2009)
Directed by: Charles Guard, Thomas Guard
Starring: Elizabeth Banks, David Strathairn, Emily Browning, Arielle Kebbel
Continuity mistake: During the scene when Rachel is driving Anna to town in Rachel's BMW, the overhead shot of the open convertible shows the car has a manual transmission. Later, when Anna is fleeing the house in Anna's BMW, the car is an automatic, as seen both by the different shifter, and the fact that Anna has to shift into Park to restart the car when it stalled.
Question: If Mildred Kemp is in the mental institution under her real name, then why in the article does it say that she is still at large? Is this just part of the delusion that Anna is playing out?

Chosen answer: The newspaper article saying she was still at large was 20 years old. It can safely be assumed that she was caught and put into the institution during that 20 year time frame.
What? I'm still so confused. Are Rachel and Mildred the same person? Who killed the three children?
Anna has a disorder, which is another reason she was in a psychiatric institution and not jail. Her personality disorder is called dissociative identity disorder, where she takes on alters, aspects of her personality who handle stress, when she cannot. Alex and Mildred were alters of hers, which is why Anna thought Rachel was Mildred. The MIldred alter did the things she couldn't do, killing Rachel because she thought she was evil. And a Mildred alter can be thought of wanting to revenge her capture, so why not make a mini Mildred out of Anna?
So Mildred told Anna to kill Rachel?
No... Mildred was in the mental hospital with Anna and told Anna stories about her murdering the children I'm sure (since she asked when Anna left the hospital who she was going to tell her stories too). Anna wanted to kill Rachel to begin with and when she faked being mentally health enough to escape, her intention was to be home to kill her. She did and then goes back to the hospital, where the real Mildred Kemp is.
