The Visit

Two siblings visit their grandparents and discover their disturbing behavior.


Why watch this film?

After making a success with movies such as 'Signs' and 'The Sixth Sense', filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan entered a really bad moment in his career. He signed off on bombs like 'The Happening', 'The Last Airbender' and 'After Earth'. So, Shyamalan took the correct path. He put the ball down, asked for a timeout and took a good break. The result of this respite for the filmmaker is the interesting 'The Visit', a "comeback" movie from Shyamalan. Here, through found footage -- that is, hand-held camera, as if a character was filming the whole film -- we follow the vacations of two siblings at their grandparents' house. However, quickly, things get out of control and the grandparents show they are not who they should be. The highlight goes to the scary performances of Peter McRobbie and Deanna Dunagan as the grandparents, in addition to the good comedic relief from grandson Ed Oxenbould.
