Review (4 out of 5 Stars):

M. Night Shyamalan is an okay director. I really enjoyed Unbreakable. Signs and The Village were watchable too. Once scene from The Happening depicting construction workers falling out of the sky haunted me for a little while. The rest of his movies, however, did not really hook me. I'd rather do just about anything (mow the lawn, wash the dishes, walk 50 miles) than have to sit down and waste two hours watching The Sixth Sense or The Lady in White.

Like I previously stated, M. Night Shyamalan is an okay director. I don't really seek out his movies, but I also don't go out of my way to avoid them either. I don't expect a whole lot from him. The ideas are usually good, but in the end they lack that satisfying feeling you get after seeing a great movie. That's probably why The Visit really surprised me. I did not expect him to come up with a story that had an ending I didn't expect after the first five minutes.

If you are home alone on a cold, stormy winter night and you don't know what to watch, you could do a lot worse than The Visit. It is funny and scary at the same time. My partner and I laughed about it for a few days and yet the movie still kind of got under our skin and festered. Unlike other scary movies, the events in The Visit could happen and probably have happened somewhere.

Beware!
