May 7, 2019
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 4, 2019
The Visit's faux-documentary stylings bring fresh horrors to tired formulas.
April 18, 2019
A thoroughly generic predictable horror movie.
April 11, 2019
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.

Unpretentious, scary, and wickedly entertaining, The Visit will, with hope, signal a new, not-shitty period in a fallen filmmaker's career.
January 18, 2019
The Visit proves to be a pleasant surprise, with a surprisingly effective mix of laughs and chills that doesn't try to do too much.

Los detractores de Shyamalan podrán encontrar de qué quejarse, pero indudablemente Los huéspedes marca parcialmente su regreso como un narrador con buenas historias que contar.
November 15, 2018
While "The Visit" bucks the trend of space-oriented films that start from a sense of wonder rather than fact, it does inspire the former, treating its audience as aliens to restore that all-too-human curiosity about what lies beyond our own planet.

The Visit isn't on par with Shyamalan's early work nor does it excuse his recent atrocities, but going from dreadful to pretty good is still an enormous leap to accomplish.

If you've felt burned by Shyamalan over the past ten years, put your skepticism aside and take a chance on The Visit. It's well worth your time.
August 30, 2018
The Visit is not a perfect film, but it is fun and as the viewer you may laugh out loud or gasp.
August 21, 2018
It's downright fun.
August 21, 2018
The Visit is good. It lacks the flashiness and giant twists Shyamalan is known for, and this is a big plus for the film.
December 3, 2017
The Visit should be considered a winning comeback for Shyamalan; the twist is dumb fun and audiences are going to have a blast being simultaneously frightened while laughing at the lunacy of it all
October 26, 2017
Another year, another crashing disappointment from M Night Shyamalan, for whom the success of The Sixth Sense must be beginning to feel like it happened to somebody else.
October 16, 2017
The Visit is more like a conventional card trick than a full-scale illusion, but it has some decent scare moments...
September 21, 2017
But this 'found footage' thriller is an improvement on [M. Night Shyamalan's] last few projects. At least the story is relatable and not too crazy and he's aided by a strong cast.
September 6, 2017
The Visit doesn't quite deliver a roundhouse punch. Unlike [M. Night] Shyamalan's early successes, there is no satisfying connection of emotions and events at the end. But it's scary and funny enough, and certainly well-made, to recommend.

The performances of the kids are commendable as they play with our expectations of child actors and what is normal for children's behavior in this type of story.
August 1, 2017
The Visit is somehow not only a good movie; it's an exceptional one that stands out from similar stories for its emotional authenticity and the respect it has for its characters.
