M Night Shyamalan's The Village revolves around a desolate town in Pennsylvania. The residents of this town live by strict rules - They are not to leave the village or the monsters beyond their boundaries will surely attack them. Lucius and Ivy have an attraction - a strong one. But when Noah - a man with an intellectual disability and who also has feelings for Ivy, finds out that the two are In love, Noah attacks Lucius. He will die if brave Ivy (who is blind) does not breach the borders and find help to save Lucius.Written by

Less Horror and More a Good Story with Good Twists
Not saying that Horror movies can't have good stories but this movie felt less like the whole point was simply to scare you. I found the characters to be very unique especially Lucius and Ivy, the main characters, as well as the elders of the village and Noah, a mentally challenged man. The acting from Lucius and Ivy (her especially) was superb and I think that drove the movie forward even when there was slow downs in action. Their relationship felt very genuine and was very sweet, especially a scene on their porch.
The movie does sort of have the M.Night twists and they are the good kind that make sense and add to the story. I would say there are two main twists and they are both very good.
Really excellent movie, highly recommend.
