M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit gets a poster; trailer to debut Thursday

04.21.2015

It's that time again when a new M. Night Shyamalan (AFTER EARTH, THE LAST AIRBENDER) flick is almost upon us and the world will wonder if he can rekindle the magic he had early on in his career. His latest, entitled THE VISIT, tells the story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm, where they discover something deeply disturbing. I found my grandparents' house disturbing just because of the lack of a Nintendo console, but I'm guessing the Shyamalan has something different in mind. We can expect the first trailer to hit on Thursday, but the poster is here to give you that creepy old-person vibe.

Amazingly, I've found that M. Night's more recent work has transcended the "so bad it's good" plateau to "unwatchable" territory. Still, I'm not of the school of thought that a director is only as good as his last work so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. The story of this one doesn't grab me, but I'll have to see the trailer to see how creepy these grandparents are. Maybe one of them has false teeth and smells like old cheese.

THE VISIT will hit theaters on September 11, 2015.

THE HAPPENING, on the other hand, is one of my favorite Shyamalan comedies.

His ideas are better suited for television. He should revive the Twilight Zone because his material is good enough for a half hour but not a full length feature film. The Village, Lady in the Water, The Happening all would of been less disappointing if they were half hour episodes of the Twilight Zone, even Unbreakable, which I love, would of been better trimmed down to TV and then turned into a series of episodes.

Sounds like a Goosebumps book I read when I was a kid.

FIRST TRAILER???

Then WTF did I watch with unfriended??? A teaser. If that was a teaser that was the worst teaser ever, shit ruined the movie LOL. And IDK about the movie either it was some weird found footage shit that didn't kno to be a comedy or horror. I'm sure this will suck like his last 30000 movies. At least he made a kick ass TV show well I hope that will be kick ass.

Either this movie will redeem him or send him deeper into oblivion.

After Earth, Last Airbender and Happening... I understand (and, for the most part share) the despise for those turds. But, event though I'm in the minority, Lady In The Water is one of my favourites Shyamalan's film... I like it FAR MORE than The Village or Signs ! On the other hand, I'm a fan of Howard The Duck and Cutthroat Island... So I'm probably beyond saving !

Hey, we like what we like! I haven't liked any of his films post Unbreakable. I know a lot of people enjoyed Signs and it was for the most part, a critical and financial success, (but why the hell would the aliens go to a planet they're essentially allergic too?!? Wouldn't humidity kill them?! Andwhy are intergalactic beings screeching monsters that kept trapped in closets?!?) but to each their own! Don't let anyone else tell you what to like!

I am with you on Cutthroat Island. I am a sucker for pirate adventure films though and I think it is good.

Shyamalan's done in my book.

You are absolutely correct. Shyamalan went from "so bad, it's good" to "just plain awful". However, his last films were so awful (especially The Last Airbender) that I don't know if I can give the guy any more chances.
Not sure why studios are giving him money to direct more movies when his name alone on any poster or trailer has people losing interest instantly! Why do you think Shyamalan's name was not on the poster or trailer for After Earth, coming after The Last Airbender?
There are so

There are so many great filmmakers who do release great work, only to then find themselves struggling daily with getting studio funds for their next projects. BUT Shyamalan always has money being thrown to him no matter how terrible his films get!

In all fairness, after nearly torpedoing Will and Jaden Smith's careers, he filmed it in secret on a very low budget. I have no faith in this at all, but M Night knows he needs this to work to salvage what's left of his career. If he doesn't, his ego is worse than I thought....

How about some truth in advertising?

He should cross into television, he's had too many chances. Wayward Pines actually looks interesting and perhaps television, be it Netflix, HBO, whatever, might suit his sensibilities better.

I agree that some of his movies are so bad they are good. I know "The Happening" is a terrible film but I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it.

People are so quick to attack him. I am sure that this could go either way, just like every other single film that doesn't have clips on youtube for promotion.

Quick attack? The guy's had four bombs in a row since 2006, not including The Village, which I thought was bad but not awful. I might agree with you if this was after one bomb, but M. Night's been nailing his coffin shut for awhile. However, Wayward Pines looks interesting, but I have no hope for his next cinematic endeavor...

I agree that a director is probably not as good as his last film, but he's probably as good as his last 4. And considering Shyamalan has not had a great movie since Unbreakable (maybe The Village), I have no faith in him to make a good movie at this point. I do not think this will be a good movie.

The trailer already debuted. They showed it with Unfriended.

Anywho, it looked intriguing, but most MNS movies (and horror movies, for that matter) do in trailers. And yes, the grandparents were creepy (will you get in the oven to clean it?), but all that went out the window when I saw that it was written and directed by MNS.

The article might be referring to online because I can't find it anywhere on YouTube.

I'm rooting for M Night and this movie

I actually felt that each of his first 3 movies, Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs, were each better than the last (Yes, I know he directed 2 movies before Sixth Sense).

Then came The Village which was alright, and then disaster struck.

I've been hoping to see the talent return that I saw 12 years ago with Signs (perhaps my favorite movie theater experience of all time). I know he's got it. Maybe this is the one!
