Day 24 of 60 Days of Halloween and tonight’s movie choice was M. Night Shyamalan’s, The Visit (2015).
I chose this film to watch today for two reasons:
1.) On the whole I like M. Night Shyamalan’s work and consider The Visit to be a true return to form for the director, following a few sub par movies (Lady in the Water etc). I’ve only watched this film once before, so I felt like revisiting it.
2.) Tonight’s movie was watched in the company of my husband, so I wanted to pick something that would make him think a little about what he was watching. As Shyamalan is known for his misdirection, I wanted to see whether or not he’d work out the twist in this tale.
Here’s the trailer for those unfamiliar with the film…
If you’ve not watched The Visit, but you like some of Shyamalan’s other movies (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Split, etc) I recommend this one. Don’t Google it; don’t read up on it; just watch and see what you think.
60 Days of Halloween continues tomorrow…
