  • We all know that comedy and horror are close to each other, so much so that screams can quickly transform into laughter. Shyamalan remembers this...

    February 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Shyamalan recaptures some of his earlier essence with lots of mystery, subtle creeps and moments where you'll question what exactly it is you're seeing.

    May 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The Visit's faux-documentary stylings bring fresh horrors to tired formulas.

    May 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A thoroughly generic predictable horror movie.

    April 18, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • The Visit is solidly entertaining without overdoing anything. At least it's not a negative mark on Shyamalan's record, which is in and of itself a reason to be happy.

    April 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Unpretentious, scary, and wickedly entertaining, The Visit will, with hope, signal a new, not-shitty period in a fallen filmmaker's career.

    Super creepy. Nice twist at the end.

    A disturbing and creepy premise. It'll keep you watching until the very end!

    The Visit was a not Shyamalan's greatest work but it worked in its low budget way. The acting was horrendous and the plot was predictable, though the camerawork was at least steady to not make it so shaky.

    Risible "return to form" (it's not), featuring two INCREDIBLY irritating performances/characters at the centre. The found footage/documentary style grates and is noticeable only for its complete lack of style, the attempts at comedy are woeful and there is no suspense or shocks. The "twist", supposedly hiding in plain sight, is exactly what one supposes it might be from the first 10 minutes.
