"Bedtime is 9:30. It's probably best you two shouldn't come out of your room after that." After debuting the teaser poster earlier this week, the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's return to the horror genre has arrived. The Visit seems to be a found footage horror thriller following two kids (Ed Oxenbould, Olivia DeJonge) spending a weekend with their grandparents where some very strange things happen after 9:30pm. This looks pretty creepy, though I'm not sure why the found footage angle was necessary. It almost seems like it's late to the party. Still, this will probably make you cautious about your grandparents.
Here's the first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit from Universal:

The Visit is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village), which he also produced with Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge, Sinister). The film employs a found footage style of storytelling to follow a brother and sister (Ed Oxenbould, Olivia DeJonge) 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. The film arrives on September 11th.
