The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village, and The Happening. The horror films of M. Night Shyamalan have helped define the director of unique cinema, for good or bad. He manages to stay just “this side” of the wall between suspense and gore fest. Except for The Sixth Sense he hasn’t managed to gain the kind of notoriety of other contemporary mega-directors, like Quentin Tarantino as an example.
Maybe he is more like Oliver Stone, carving out his own niche, with a distinct fan following.
But his next release now has its first trailer. It doesn’t look like his earlier horror films, but appears equally creepy.
After the break, check out the first trailer for The Visit:
The Visit hits theaters September 11, 2015.
