M. Night Shyamalan has never been able to top himself following The Sixth Sense, but he came close with this 2004 film about a resident of a small and isolated 19th century Pennsylvania village who lived in fear of "Those We Don't Speak Of," humanoid creatures living in the surrounding woods. As it turned out, the film actually takes place in present day and the village was founded in the late 1970s by individuals who'd suffered crime-related deaths of loved ones, each wanting to build a place entirely free of interference from the outside world. And the monsters? Just elders in costumes, scaring the young residents into compliance.
