While filming, Becca and her little brother Tyler discover a dark secret about their grandparents.

At the end of high school, I fell in love with a substitute English teacher. It was quite a scandal. Corin didn't start out a bad guy, though. We were together about 10 years and we had two kids.

Not sure if M. Night is waving at us or giving us the finger ...
As I write this, per IMDb, this movie has made its financial return five times over. I'm hoping it's just M. Night's way of saying that he can still pull because for the guy that gave us The Sixth Sense, The Visit is nothing spectacular. I admit that I didn't get the twist until its reveal -and- he got me good as I was looking for something much deeper. Still, it was underwhelming... in a 'The Village' sort of way. The best (okay, second best) is yet to come and I believe it will come within these indie excursions. This review comes from someone who gives Lady In The Water a thumbs-up so I am on the generous side. As long as I don't get another 'Devil' with its totally misleading adverts or 'The Happening' which has me still wondering what happened, M. Night is cool with me. I may be missing one or two stinkers here but he's entitled to a few.
