M. Night Shyamalan’s latest flick The Visit pull him out of his directorial rut and place his films back into the “highly-anticipated” category? Judging from the creepy new trailer, it’s definitely possible.
The film is a creepy found footage look at a pair of siblings whose week-long stay with their grandparents on a remote Pennsylvania farm quickly goes from eating too many sweets to trying to stay alive. The grandparents only have one strange rule for their grandkids: NEVER leave your room after 9:30pm. The trailer, which you can watch below, does a good job of showing how the film’s tone changes completely after dark in that house.
Prepare to be thoroughly creeped out:
You can also read a description of the film from Universal Pictures:
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.
The Visit stars Kathryn Hahn, Olivia DeJonge, Benjamin Kanes, Deanna Dunagan and Peter McRobbie.
