Preliminary Press Notes!

The Unbidden is a supernatural thriller about four women confronted by a mysterious young man who

unburies a dark secret from their past.

Mystery Novelist Lauren Lee (Tamlyn Tomita) is haunted by the ghost of a tortured, bloodied man. She tries to forget the apparition’s terrifying warnings and her unstable mental state by hosting dinner with her best friends (Julia Nickson, Amy Hill and Elizabeth Sung). Each of her best friends has her own idea and opinion to make Lauren better.

In the midst of a séance that Rachel believes will exorcise Lauren, a mysterious young man arrives brandishing a gun and announces that one of them is his mother. He holds the women hostage in order to get to the truth of the whereabouts of his missing father, Lauren’s husband.

The women’s world unravels as Lauren confesses that she has killed her husband Jake (Jason Yee) in self defense. Even though the young man is stunned by his mother’s frank confession, there are brutal twists to the dark secret that he never imagined.

He goes on an emotional journey through the four women's past which reverses his perspective on vengeance. But forgiveness doesn’t come easy to those who’ve committed the ultimate betrayal as a decades long mystery gets solved in an unexpected final reckoning.

Writer and Director’s Statement   If you're a fan of the horror, psychological thriller, family melodrama or Asian American film genres, you're in for a treat, not a trick. Our feature film has elements that will remind you of the classics What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?, Rope, All About My Mother and The Joy Luck Club.

  Our intention was to create a wildly original independent feature with an all Asian American cast that aims to not only entertain with shocks and thrills, but bring on the debate about difficult emotional issues. This is a female-driven film that deals with domestic violence and the morality of retribution. The central conflict of the story is whether or not the victim of an intimate crime is justified in returning the violence on her perpetrator.

  Can any act of violence ever truly be forgiven?

What kind of change in a person's heart, soul and mind has to occur for that character to accept love again?  About the Cast TAMLYN TOMITA (Lauren Lee) made her screen debut as Kumiko in The Karate Kid, Part II with Ralph Macchio and Pat “Noriyuki” Morita and has since appeared in numerous feature films, television, and theatre projects.

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun Times has written that Karin is “a gifted Asian American actor.” Better Luck Tomorrow premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2002 and screened at festivals across the country including Toronto, but it was when MTV Films purchased it that Karin became known to everyone world wide.

Her artwork has been shown in various galleries in and around Los Angeles and she has both performed and recorded extensively as a vocalist, songwriter, and musician. Karin’s last major film project was a romantic-comedy feature called The People I’ve Slept With with director Quentin Lee.
