It might be way too soon to say this, but we're feeling optimistic so what the hell: Welcome back, M. Night Shyamalan!
The trailer for his latest film, The Visit, was posted online late last week, and not only is Shyamalan returning to his horror film roots, but it looks like he's doing it with a good movie. Finally!
Admit it; his film track record as of late has been less than stellar. And that's putting it nicely. These are the last four films he's made:
Basically, instead of being known for his creepy, unique film twists like he used to be, he's now known for making bad movies and/or maybe ghostwriting She's All That.
Depending on how you feel about his earlier work, you think his last good movie was either Sixth Sense or Signs or maybe even The Village. Well, hopefully The Visit will mark his triumphant return to the genre. Feedback on the trailer has been mostly positive, so watch it above and let us know what you think!
Here is the log line for The Visit, from Universal Pictures and coming to theaters Sept. 11, 2015: "Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of 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."
Side note: We're already a fan of this movie because it stars Kathryn Hahn.
