Personal Quote:

When we made The Sixth Sense (1999) in 1999, every film had an original film-maker with an original point of view - American Beauty (1999), Being John Malkovich (1999), The Matrix (1999), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Magnolia (1999). Clearly that's not the case today. See more »

Trivia:

Ranked #23 in Premiere's 2004 annual Power 100 List. He was the 5th-highest ranked director. Had ranked #21 in 2003. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently uses water as a sign of death or weakness (the aliens in Signs (2002) and David Dunn in Unbreakable (2000) both have the same weakness; in The Sixth Sense (1999), a killer hides in a bathroom. In The Village (2004), Finton becomes too scared to continue on with Ivy when it is raining.) See more »
