M. Night Shyamalan Returns to His Roots with The Visit, but Will It Be Good?

So, it looks like M. Night Shyamalan is making another movie. I’m not entirely sure if this one will be better than the last few he’s whipped up. He hasn’t exactly been on top of his game since The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, which are easily his best films.

A creepy trailer just launched for his upcoming movie, The Visit.

What is The Visit About?

The new movie marks a return to Shyamalan’s horror roots. The premise, involves a “a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.”

Check out the trailer:

Who’s in It?


The list of stars in the film includes Kathryn Hahn (TomorrowlandThe Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Olivia DeJonge (HidingTheSisterhood of Night), Deanna Dunagan (Unforgettable, Have a Little Faith), Ed Oxenbould (JulienAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day), and Peter McRobbie (Marvel’s DaredevilLincoln). You might recognize a couple of the actors while watching the trailer.

M. Night Shyamalan wrote the script for the movie and will be directing it, as well.

Will It Be Any Good?

That’s a damn good question, especially since Shyamalan’s last few movies have been, well let’s just stick with “not so good.” Please, I’m begging you, not a word about The Happening.

It’s difficult to say at this point if the movie will be good, since trailers are never a clear cut indication. The Visit looks downright creepy, but all the best scenes could have been shown already.

I’m not sure what I’d do if my grandmother ever told me to get in the oven. That’s some witchy, Hansel and Gretel shit right there.

The teaser poster for the film lists three rules:

  1. Have a great time.
  2. Eat as much as you want.
  3. Don’t ever leave your room after 9:30 pm.

That last one reminds me of Gremlins. Remember that one?

Anyway, it will be interesting to see why these looney, old folks are scaring their grandchildren. Are they crazy? Are they vampires? Are they secretly plants that like to control people through telepathy, forcing them to kill themselves? Wait… that last one was another movie. Forget I even said that.
