While M Night Shyamalan’s career has dwindled somewhat over the years, 2015 has seen the director bounce back. He produced and directed the pilot episode of the superb TV series Wayward Pines, and now he’s back to true horror with The Visit.
The trailers have all shown that this film looks insane, and will hopefully be a great addition to the horror genre. Now comes a short TV spot, showing off plenty of the insanity we can expect from The Visit. Fingers crossed this will see Shyamalan back to his best.
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.
Shyamalan produces The Visit through his Blinding Edge Pictures, while Blum produces through his Blumhouse Productions alongside Mark Bienstock (Quarantine 2: Terminal). Steven Schneider (Insidious) and Ashwin Rajan (Devil) executive produce the thriller.
Starring Kathryn Hahn, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, Ed Oxenbould and Olivia DeJonge, The Visit releases in UK cinemas on 11th September 2015.
