THE VISIT [2015]

Remember as a kid while visiting the grandparent's house overnight you'd hear weird sounds from around their scary old person home?
Director M. Night Shyamalan takes that creepy grandparents concept and runs wild with it in The Visit, his first journey into the found footage thriller genre.
After a good decade or so of cinematic failures, it's nice to see M. Night get his shit somewhat together with this absurdly silly yet amusing spin on The Grimm's Fairytales.  The scares will cause more nervous laughter than genuine frights but that's part of it's sinister charm.  It's not quite up to par with The Sixth Sense but it's certainly no After Earth, so maybe we can begin thinking about forgiving the director for harming our braincells for ever so long.
