Grandparents be crazy in first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit

I’m one of those suckers who’s still holding out hope for M. Night Shyamalan to amaze us once again with a great film. THE SIXTH SENSE and UNBREAKABLE are two of my favourites and I consider SIGNS to be pretty darn enjoyable as well, so what happened? After three mostly solid films the director has since been on a steady decline as film after film show less and less of the filmmaker who the world once dubbed "the next Spielberg."

Today we finally have get our first trailer for THE VISIT, M. Night Shyamalan's micro-budgeted return to horror. Lets take a look at what he has in store for us and decide whether we're ready to welcome Shyamalan back into our hearts.

The found footage aspect threw me a bit as I find it's a gimmick that is rarely done effectively, but if you accept THE VISIT for what it is I have a feeling we may be pleasantly surprised by the end result. I've got my fingers crossed that this is the first step of M. Night Shyamalan's return to the storyteller who was once full of so much promise. Those first film's weren't just flukes were they?

Here’s the official synopsis for The Visit:

Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit. 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.
