Stay in your room! You must keep that in mind, because when things get weird and scary, there is nothing more safe than the door shut and hide under the bed…

M. Night Shyamalan is back to his roots. Let’s salute to that! After several missed shots, seems that he found himself with this weird and terrifying dark comedy. The Visit is the story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. They never had any contact with them, even their faces were totally unknown for both brothers…

Deeply disturbing and original, The Visit brings all the classic horror clichés and mixed them with sharp takes of pure comedy, providing that essential element that nowadays seems lost in the cinema, the experience of watching a movie and the mixed feelings that this will cause in the audience.

The Visit brings joy, relief, really good laughs, rap battles, tension and creepy moments that will unnerve you. We can even say that this might be Shyamalan best movie in over a decade, the creepiest comeback from one of the best filmmakers of the last 20 years. Let’s wait if he can keep up this vote of confidence.
