M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit Header Image

Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions has made a successful business of turning low-budget horror films into box office gold. But his latest project pairs him up with M. Night Shyamalan. The Visit marks the first time that the two have collaborated on the project, with a couple more projects to come. In the film, Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and younger brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) say goodbye to their mother as they board a train and head deep into Pennsylvania farm country to meet their maternal grandparents for the first time. While everything appears to be comfy and cozy, when night falls, strange things happen to their Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), and they discover a terrifying secret that may end up killing them.

We had the chance to talk to Blum about the movie, the Blumhouse business model, and working with Shyamalan for the first time. Check out the interview below.

M. Night Shyamalan

The Visit marks M. Night Shyamalan‘s cinematic return to tense thrillers. In the film, Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and younger brother Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) say goodbye to their mother as they board a train and head deep into Pennsylvania farm country to meet their maternal grandparents for the first time. While everything appears to be comfy and cozy, when night falls, strange things happen to their Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), and they discover a terrifying secret that may end up killing them.

We were offered the chance to sit down with other journalists to talk to the film’s director about how working with the concept of found footage changed his directing style, working with the young leads, the conscious decision to use theater actors over recognizable ones, and much more.

Recently we saw a teaser poster for The Visit, the upcoming horror flick from The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs writer and director M. Night Shyamalan, and now the first trailer for the movie has been released online by Universal Pictures.

The movie follows a pair of siblings who set off to stay with their grandparents for a bit, where they discover strange and terrifying things happening at night. It’s presented in a found footage style, though it doesn’t always look like one.

You read a full synopsis and watch the trailer for The Visit below.

There’s no denying that the quality of M. Night Shyamalan‘s movies has fallen hard in recent years. In fact, that game with the little yodeling man on The Price is Right pretty much perfectly sums up the director’s career so far.

That aside, no matter how impossibly bad it gets people always seem to still be interested in what he’s doing next. That says a lot about what he’s done in the past, because deep down they (and I!) hope that he one day finds his way back to the much more memorable fare he offered us in his earlier flicks…that or it’s out of morbid curiosity, looking only to see how much worse the years-long trainwreck can get.

Shyamalan’s next attempt at redemption is titled The Visit, and the first teaser poster for the movie has been released. You can check it out below.

The Visit Movie Trailer, Michael Madsen

We’ve seen plenty of movies that offer a take on what it would (will?) be like when aliens from another world decide to pay our humble little species a visit one day. They come in many forms; some of them are action-packed Hollywood blockbuster types, some are over-the-top, some are terrifying.

The Visit from director Michael Madsen (no, not that one) presents the scenario in a much more realistic way. Precautions are taken, questions are asked, so on and so forth. Madsen, a Danish documentary filmmaker (Into Eternity: A Film for the Future), shot the movie in a similar style due to its coverage of “an event that has never taken place.”

To be honest I don’t really know what’s going on in this trailer, but it sure does look interesting. You can read a synopsis and see the trailer and a poster for The Visit below.
