M. Night Shyamalan's Low Budget 'Sundowning' Plot & Cast Revealed

Last month we keyed you into a low budget production that M. Night Shyamalan was working on called Sundowning. Now that production is nearly wrapped in Pennsylvania, we finally have some details on the film's plot and cast who will hopefully help the director of The Sixth Sense get back on the genre horse with a decent film. THR says the story follows Kathryn Hahn (Bad Words, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) as a single mother who takes her two young children to visit their grandparents, but the visit goes terrifyingly wrong. And once you understand the term "sundowning," it becomes clear what will likely happen. Read on!

Sundowning refers to a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. So it sounds like we might be dealing with unstable grandparents, and while that sounds ridiculous, if Shyamalan is able to return to his roots for a great genre film, this could turn out all right. One of the children will be played by Ed Oxenbould, who plays the title role in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day alongside Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner. Here's hoping Shyamalan has some more movie magic up his sleeve. Thoughts?

I am always hopeful, but Shyamalan is just not that talented, sadly.

The "magic" was used up a long time ago.
