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 »

What urban legends are made of...
3 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Like the hideously confounding and at times chilling stuff urban legends are made of, M Night continues to walk hand in hand with the likes of the Nelly the Lochness and the Blair witch. Once again M Night has pulled something similar to a horrifically ghastly gunny sack over our heads all the while dragging us into the middle of a wooded area in the dead of the witching hour fully intent on leaving us there to fend for ourselves. Although more of a shocumentary, one expects a level of cleared understanding when immersing into a documentary. However, M Night would have none of it. Whether he is a genius in his own right, or just plain insane, M Night has added all the elements of terror and surprise from his films and incorporated it into a world of his own in which he stars. He and very few others can make what can only be described as a work of art that each and every person leaves from feeling as if they were a part of history in the making. Taking with them a piece only as original as each person who viewed it. How one man can make you expect everything, receive nothing, and walk away feeling richer than ever is beyond me, but one would be a fool to pass upon this jewel.
