Director: M. Night Shyamalan
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 »

After making big-budget movies like The Last Airbender and After Earth over the past few years, director M. Night Shyamalan returned to his thriller roots last year with The Visit. The filmmaker teamed up with producer Jason Blum for this low-budget story that features largely unknown actors. With The Visit arriving on Blu-ray and DVD today from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, we have an exclusive preview where the filmmaker discusses his casting approach.
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 »
Universal is giving horror fans a double shot of Blumhouse horror, with today’s release of M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy as hell Pov film, The Visit, as well as Eli Roth’s cannibal horror homage, The Green Inferno.

Quite antithetically, with the former being a return to form and a high point for its filmmaker and the latter marking yet another downer of an experience. For a full look at each release, read on!
Most definitely one of the biggest surprise hits of 2015, The Visit marks a complete return to form for The Sixth Sense/Signs filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. Gone are the escalating price tags that Shyamalan relied so heavily on following the success of his “I see dead people” breakout hit. What we’re given with this »

I sure hope you received some shopping money this holiday season, as this first week of horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases is a big one and we’ve got a lot to look forward to.
