Arielle Kebbel Shares Music Favorites With ARTISTdirect
Arielle Kebbel found inspiration from many different places for her character Alex Rydell in The Uninvited, including the musical world.

Here we have a single parent (in this case father played by David Strathairn), raising young children who as a family have to deal with the addition of a new love interest for the adult. And thus, the suspicious and often thrilling ride that is The Uninvited begins. Continue reading
