Trivia

This entire film was a mockumentary that was advertised as an unauthorized bio of reclusive director M. Night Shyamalan. After going as far as Shyamalan reporting to the press that he was upset about the release of this film, many fans and journalists became upset when they later learned it was all a hoax. The Sci-Fi channel released an apology a few days before release for their campaign strategies. See more »

He doing what he is good, no GREAT, at!
20 July 2004 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

I don't know why all of you guys are giving M. Night such a hard time about making this mini-movie. You are insulting his work, and HIM but you guys don't get it! HE IS JUST MESSING WITH YOUR HEAD! He does it in SIGNS, in THE UNBREAKBLE, and in THE SIXTH SENSE. IT is what he does and this is just another great example. All his movies are design tho mess with you mentally and make you think that things that are impossible, could actually happen. Ghosts, aliens, superheros, etc, it's all just a big mind game, and you are all falling for it! And now you are falling for his latest mind game, THE BURIED SECRETS OF M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN. It's just a movie. He is doing what he is good at (and succeeding!), you guys can't blast him for it. Plus, what if it is true. I mean it is not all that uncommon for a writer/director to use scenarios from his own life in the movies he writes/directs. I mean so what if he used a house he lived in as the house in SIGNS. So what if he fell through some ice when he was little and doesn't want to talk about it. So what if he uses his life experiences to mess with your head. Granted it probably wasn't as weird as they made it out to be but that doesn't mean it didn't, or couldn't, have happened! I doubt he is connected to the other side but you know not everything has an explanation. For all we know, this could all be true and he could be connected and talking with "Henry". It's the unknown. THe unknown is what M. Night uses in his movies to mess with peoples heads. But just remember this the unknown is like a question, not every question has an answer.
