Despite what you might think from viewing M. Night Shyamalan’s past six movies (the most recent of which being the lamentable Last Airbender), he really does know how to tell a story. His latest film is The Visit, taking an ordinary situation and turning it into the extraordinary. Children visiting their grandparents seems like a happy vacation, but things go wrong when the children are told not to leave their rooms after 9:30 at night. When they do, they find that something is horribly, horribly wrong with grandma. And it just keeps getting worse.
As usual when viewing videos, please take a moment to temporarily turn off the SCIFI.radio stream in the uppper right corner while you’re viewing this one. You can turn it back on when you’re done. Ready? Have a look.
We’ve all got somebody in our family that has made us uneasy at one time or other. Shyamalan takes this to its logical extreme. In this trailer, it appears that M. Night Shyamalan has returned to the level of master storytelling he showed us in his 1999 supernatural thriller, The Sixth Sense.
It stars Deanna Dunagan and Peter McRobbie as the deeply troubled grandparents, and releases via Universal Pictures on September 11, 2015.
