M. Night Shyamalan returning to horror with low budget chiller ‘Sundowning’



M. Night Shyamalan’s undeniable classic, The Sixth Sense, seems like a long long way away, and to be fair it was released fifteen years ago. However, after giving is great films like Unbreakable (2000), Signs (2002) and some would even argue The Village (2004), the director’s films have continued to get steadily worse.

Films like The Happening, Lady in the Water, The Last Airbender and last years awful After Earth, many people (including film companies) have all but given up on the once great director. However, he just might have one last trick up his sleeve to give his career a boost, a return to horror.

Shyamalan proved he still had the talent shown all those years ago when he wrote the superb chiller Devil (2010), and while I am in no way a fan of his work anymore, I would welcome a return to the horror genre. Let’s call it curiosity.

The director is secretly working on a low budget horror called Sundowning, and while no details have been revealed about the films plot, the name suggests something to do with vampires.

Black Swan‘s costumer Amy Westcott and production designer Therese DePerez are apparently working on the film alongside French cinematographer Maryse Alberti (The Wrestler).

Shyamalan has been posting a few updates on his Twitter account, and also revealed the below picture. Production began on February 19th, so expect more on this as we find out.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
