Back in the spring, you might remember hearing a bit about M. Night Shyamlan's next project, which at the time was called Sundowning. However, since then, the filmmaker has been quietly working on the project with no indication of when we might finally see the movie. But that changes today as Universal Pictures has announced that they will release the film, now titled The Visit, next fall on September 11th, 2015. The film was originally named as "Untitled Blumhouse Horror 1" and slated for September 25th, but the project produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Conjuring) will arrive two weeks earlier.
The Visit is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan and tells the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day. Ed Oxenbould (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible…) stars in the film along with Kathryn Hahn, but there's bound to be other cast members we haven't heard about yet. Stay tuned for more details on this low key horror project that could revive Shyamalan's career. Excited?
