Here, [Shyamalan] loosened up, shed some of his ego, and reminded all of us what a gifted writer and director he truly is.

M. Night Shyamalan made another good movie, and I'm as surprised as you are.

There is definitely a lot to appreciate in this creepy little number, however, if you're not a fan of this particular sub-genre, then you're probably better off looking for your frights elsewhere.

There are a lot of both the good and the bad "Shyamalanisms" in this film to both support the argument that this is a good comeback and to show that he isn't the filmmaker he was 15 years ago.

With "The Visit," M. Night Shyamalan might well be coming out of his 12-year sophomore slump.

The majority of the film, when the very young are being terrorized by the very old, is highly effective.

Though it may not be all that scary, it gets brownie points for being strange.

The Visit is somewhat of a moderate success for Shyamalan; his methodology of storytelling here wasn't something I felt was necessary (going docu-style), but I dug his story, the characters & just how downright nasty it gets during the last 15 mins.

Don't go in expecting some big Sixth Sense-style twist but The Visit does provide a satisfying blend of thrills and laughs, so if you're into spooky movies, it's worth a watch.

With The Visit, Shyamalan has delivered a delicious horror gem so intense that you may accidentally rip the armrests off your seat from clenching them so hard.

The twist is that The Visit reminds you that M. Night Shyamalan has a remarkable mind for what frightens us.

It's brutally creepy, funny, and packs a meaningful message about forgiveness.

A movie that doesn't know if it's a horror film or a comedy, but it's a good hybrid that we can be sure will captivate us and entertain us. [Full review in Spanish]

The Visit is a pleasant surprise.
November 6, 2015
Stop the presses: M. Night Shyamalan has made a film that doesn't suck.
October 20, 2015
...an exemplary cast, the script is keenly aware of not only our horror expectations but our Shyamalan expectations, too, using it against us in the best possible way.
October 17, 2015
The Visit marks Shyamalan's best horror effort since 2004's The Village, and one can only hope that this marks the start of a comeback for the once-reliable filmmaker.
October 10, 2015
Effectively modulated, balancing character exposition with pointed dialogue while injecting the plot's progression with slow (but gradual) increments of terrifying uncertainty.
October 8, 2015
The best Shyamalan film since The Village. [Read full review in Spanish]

[The Visit] seems aware that its core audience considers this kind of movie like a fairground ride. Shrieks of audience terror are usually followed by laughter anyway, and the two emotions aren't always that different.
