'The Village' is among Shyamalan's salvageable films, in which he uses ignorance and superstition to keep a group of people in the woods away from evil creatures. [Full review in Spanish]

Gripping, creepy, and very well acted with a great breakout performance from Bryce Dallas Howard...

Shyamalan remains ever the master of mood and of unseen, inchoate menace; he can give depth and gravity to scenes that in other hands would be either boring or ridiculous.

In a time when Hollywood is more interested in remakes and sequels than in original movies, Shyamalan continues to tell new stories. And he's really good at it.

It is not a bad film, despite its goofy plot, thanks to top-flight acting.

[The love story] between the two young, uncorrupted stars suffuses the entire movie and has made me forgive, if not forget, the movie's flaws.

... a Sleepy Hollow-like folk tale that is light on character development and heavy on symbolism and suggestion.

Definitivamente no será recordada entre lo más selecto de su filmografía, pero si gustan del género y del sudor frío, esta es una obligada.

A powerful tale of isolationism, a desire for innocence and hope, and a fear of the unknown.

the color Red is forbidden because it attracts Those We Do Not Speak Of - except, apparently, for all of the Red herrings Shyamalan has left strewn about

Go in with a snide attitude, desperate to see The Sixth Sense director fail, and you'll leave with your prejudices underpinned. Better to embrace the experience and allow Shyamalan to show off his sublime gift for suspense.

In this election year, our cinemas have been overrun by insincere communities headed by dissemblers-in-chief.

Made with such elegance, atmosphere and wonderfully mannered performances it will nestle deep inside your head, refusing to budge.

Another voluptuous piece of tension and Shyamalan's best work since The Sixth Sense
