We may very well be in the middle of one of the greatest career renaissances in recent memory. M. Night Shyamalan is a filmmaker who started off his career with a bang. The Sixth Sense is still a flick that is highly relevant in the pop culture zeitgeist, and Shyamalan went to follow up that strong film with Unbreakable and Signs, proving that he was no one-hit wonder.
Of course, you can’t bring up Shyamalan without also bringing up the slump he fell into. There may be some debate as to when it started. Some say it started with Signs, some say The Village, but most can agree that his work started to get universally panned around the time of Lady in the Water. From The Happening through After Earth, it wasn’t clear if he would ever come back as the same creative force as he once was. »

Emma Withington reviews Knee Deep…
As you settle in to your front row seat and choose how you spend those idle, thumb twiddling moments before the curtain rises – read the playbill? Get a snack? Tune the orchestra? – you are blissfully unaware of the consequences a simple ‘night at the theatre’ will hold.
Knee Deep is a ‘Swamp Noir’, adventure, indie, murder mystery, sci-fi thriller in three acts – phew, quite the mouthful – and is brought to you by Prologue Games and Wales Interactive. You influence the lives of three protagonists with cat-killing curiosity; a tenacious blogger, a reporter at the end of the line, and a desperate detective. In backwater Florida they get caught up in the mysterious death of second-rate actor Tag Kern and the curious case of Cypress Knee in the nighttime; it’s up to those with nothing left to lose to seek out the truth.
