Grandma and grandpa are kind of freaky in The Visit, the upcoming horror film from writer-director M. Night Shyamalan.
This found-footage infused pic tells of a brother and sister who pay their grandparents a visit for the weekend. Suffice it to say, these elderly individuals aren’t exactly normal.
Shyamalan’s name understandably brings waves of wariness now, after Lady in the Water, The Happening, The Last Airbender, and After Earth proved to be…not good. Could a smaller and simpler concept bring him back up a notch?
It’s all looking relatively familiar so far, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There seems to be some pretty intense moments here, so we’ve got our fingers crossed for some decent tension and scares.
The Visit, starring Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, Ed Oxenbould and Olivia DeJonge, will hit the U.S. on September 11, 2015.
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.
