Some would say that the scariest thing you can see in a movie is the name M. Night Shyamalan. It is fair to say that he has had some flops in his time (The Happening) but could The Visit be a return to form? Strangely enough, it may just be… When Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) go to stay at their grandparents house it is fair to say that Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) are strange. Putting it down to old age, the two children try to ignore their eccentricities. As things get weirder though, the two children are about to find out just what the secret is of the grandparents’ house.
A scary movie
The Green Inferno: Hopeful for change, the student activists travel to the Amazon rainforest to save a tribe threatened by deforestation, only to be captured by the natives and placed on the menu. In The Green Inferno, Eli Roth exposes viewers to a palpable sense of primal fear, realistically placing his young cast of well-meaning characters in a horrifying “what if?” situation made all the more real by the filming location: a village deep in the jungles of Peru.
Although Roth’s unique brand of humor takes precedence over

Special Features: The Making of The Visit, Deleted Scenes, Alternate Ending, Becca’s Photos
The Visit begins in the shape of a documentary that’s being made by the son and daughter of Loretta’s (the excellent Kathryn Hahn) kids Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould). It’s explained, in the shape of an intro to Becca’s doc, that their Mother left home when she was 19 but doesn’t want to share the details of what happened when she left and it’s not something she wants to recall.
The story is setup as Mom goes off on holiday with her new boyfriend, something the two kids have encouraged, and they head off down to her childhood home to meet their grandparents (Deanna Dunagan and Peter McRobbie) for the first time

The director addresses the notion that 80% of a director's job is casting, revealing that his first decision was to only cast actors who weren't "super-famous." He talked about his approach to casting The Visit, stating that he wouldn't let anyone be around him while he was making his decisions, and that he thinks the result is "a perfect constellation of actors." The filmmaker adds that stars such as Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Kathryn Hahn, Deanna Dunagan and

Unfortunately, we only get a brief shot of Elektra putting on her mask, and The Punisher is only shown from the back. However, there is also a brief shot of what appears to be an X-ray of a skull, which resembles The Punisher's logo. We also get brief glimpses of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Karen Page
You know what would have been a surprising twist for M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film, The Visit? If it didn’t have a twist. But Shyamalan seems constitutionally incapable of making a movie that doesn’t want to surprise us with a twist. This is the twist of The Visit: about three-quarters of the way through the film, teen Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and her preteen brother, Tyler, (Ed Oxenbould) discover that the grandparents they are visiting, Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), aren’t really their grandparents. Nana and Pop Pop are escaped mental patients who murdered their real grandparents and have taken over their lives. And now Pop Pop is trying to murder Becca and Tyler. Why? Who knows? Except he’s a mental patient, and as we all know, crazy people are violent.
Apparently this is meant to harness our fear of old people,
Shyamalan has discovered the “found footage” genre (the movie is filmed by the characters) in a satirical way – two teens chronicle their visit for the first time to their grandparents– and does it his way, with crisp cinematography and flipped out images of dread and humor that both freezes and engages the soul. It’s funny to the point of stupidity – and it survives a tremendously unnecessary epilogue. I think M. Night has found a new niche, and will panic less about his reputation and begin to deliver more on his unrealized potential, based on his earlier works. And, with a tremendous boost right
Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
Starring Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie and Kathryn Hahn.
A single mother finds that things in her family’s life go very wrong after her two young children visit their grandparents.
The Visit is an odd movie. Billed as a horror film (at least IMDb labels it under that genre), the movie is surprisingly more of a dark comedy, but it would be disingenuous to say that there isn’t some terror beneath the surface. If M. Night Shyamalan’s intentions were to create a straight up horror film, then he failed miserably, but fortunately for the down-on-his-luck director (his recent movies have been pure garbage) it’s clear that there is a heavy amount of old people parody permeating what are supposed to be unnerving moments.
