First Knitted Teaser Poster for M. Night Shyamalan's Horror 'The Visit'

April 21, 2015

The Visit

If you happened to catch Unfriended in theaters this past weekend, then you may have been treated to a bit of a surprise, which is rare these days. Universal Pictures decided to release the teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's horror film The Visit in theaters exclusively this weekend without any pomp or circumstance. It will be available online this Thursday, and in the meantime, a cool, knitted teaser poster has arrived for the film that marks The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable director's return to horror, hopefully with a good film this time. The trailer is creepy, but you'll have to wait a couple days before you see it. Look!

Here's the teaser poster for M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit from Universal:

The Visit

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.

How much longer are they going to finance this hack?

DAVIDPD on Apr 21, 2015


By my count we are 5 movies past the time of him never being allowed to make another. SO, I dont know.

Brian Sleider on Apr 22, 2015


Finance? I am not one to defend this guy, but the budget is $5,000,000. This was probably financed by himself or company, and Universal decided to distribute to take a chance.

Keep in mind nearly all of Shamalan's films, minus maybe Lady in the Water, have been massively profitable, even if they have been critically panned. So to answer your question, probably as long as his movies keep making money.

Rule #3 has me intrigued. He's always been good at creating a creepy atmosphere. Hopefully he's ditched the obligatory twist and delivers a solid flick this time. Its been awhile

It's Hansel and Gretel.

DAVIDPD on Apr 21, 2015


Dig that. That's one fucked up fairytale right there.

After 9:30 is when Grandma puts on the porno....

TheOct8pus on Apr 22, 2015


Why does he need to ditch the twist? He mostly works in suspense/thriller/horror/mystery genres and they twist in them. I can't even think of any film in those genres that don't have twists. Why don't you tell Fincher to ditch his twists that he has in almost everyone of his films? What about Nolan? They've both had twists that ruined their films or where predictable.

jbob4mall on Apr 24, 2015


PLENTY of films don't have some remarkable "twist" ending. And I'm not talking about Nolan or Fincher. I'm talking about THIS film. I think it looks pretty damn creepy and I don't want some ridiculous ending to try too hard and just mess everything up. The Village pissed me off, and I had high hopes for that.

grimjob on Apr 24, 2015


I can't think of any suspense/thriller/horror/mystery movies without some kind of twist. Twist ending or otherwise. Fact is, any kind of twist in a Shyamalan movie, regardless of what kind or twist it is, is going to be criticised as a twist ending, which is unfair. That's my point. And the guy hasn't had a true twist ending since The Village. That was what? Ten years ago It isn't obligatory at all.

Good ol' Gremlins.

ragethorn on Apr 21, 2015


We never must forget he made the movie classics the sixth sense and unbreakable, afterworths he made the wrong movies for the big bucks but he is still a hell of a storyteller. I hope this brings him back to the front..

ari smulders on Apr 21, 2015


Agree with you, but I also liked Signs. The Village had potential, but was ruined halfway through.

grimjob on Apr 21, 2015


I now I agree with you...

ari smulders on Apr 21, 2015


I do not agree. I think he had 2 good stories in him. Villiage, Signs, Lady in the Water, these were HIS movies. Not movies he was "paid the big bucks" for.

Brian Sleider on Apr 22, 2015


??? Sorry but totally not agree with you and the majority of audiences will agree with me. But oke, it's your opinion...

ari smulders on Apr 22, 2015


Your opinion in demonstrably false sir his highest rated movie, aside from 6th Sense, Is Signs with a 74 on RT and 59 on MC. Hardly glowing. His latest, After Earth, film is close to his worst ever with 11 on RT and 3 on MC I mean really, his movies suck.

Brian Sleider on Apr 22, 2015


Give ordinary people a multiple choice question 3 out of four wich are his movies, and 3 say unbreakable, sixth sense and indeed signs. Not they are good but because they where made after the sixth sense... So the sixth sense is his master movie but in my eyes is unbreakable better...

ari smulders on Apr 22, 2015


I enjoy Unbreakable more than 6th Sense as well, 6th sense has no rewatchability. Signs, for me, was just a joke. I cannot get over Aliens being beaten with water... I mean for real They came to a planet that had poison/acid over 75% of the place. We would be like the xenomorphs to them, acid for blood.

Brian Sleider on Apr 22, 2015


yes haha true, but I must admit the building of suspense was perfect until revealing of the creatures itself!

ari smulders on Apr 22, 2015


Very curious about this movie. Hesitant but curious. Heads up to the folks at First Showing: the poster isn't knitted, it's cross-stitched.

LB Weatherford on Apr 21, 2015


You sure it's not needlepoint? ....just kidding. I know cross stitch when I see it. ...but not reallly

TheOct8pus on Apr 22, 2015


This hacks movies are hardly worth the buck fity Redbox charges.

Brian Sleider on Apr 22, 2015


His movies always seem to have a great premise, and some good ideas but something goes wrong. Like for one, The Happening - that should have been incredible. Somehow no one but Leguizamo wanted to both acting for him.

OfficialJab on Apr 22, 2015


Yeah. All premise and poor execution. He manages to create boredom rather than suspense sometimes. It's weird. I still wish him well in every endeavor, but I'm often disappointed.

TheOct8pus on Apr 22, 2015


Awesome poster. Something about Shyamalan's movies that keep me coming back, but they always disappoint. Except for The Happening, that was hilarious. Here's to hoping he pulls off something decent this time around.

Danimal on Apr 22, 2015


I want to break the fingers of everyone that keeps giving this guy money.

Michael Fienen on Apr 22, 2015


Don't watch his movies if they bother you so much.

jbob4mall on Apr 24, 2015


I like M.Night. He just got cocky after his early success. Signs was the last film of his that I really liked, still I hated the ending and the stupid cgi alien. I like his twists, it was his brand. I think his later movies starting with the village should have been TV epiI like M.Night. He just got cocky after his early success.

I don't know what happened there, but anyway I'll give it a chance. But found footage makes me worried. I hate that whole genre.

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Apr 22, 2015


All I think of is the story of Hansel and Gretel. These two grandchildren find out their beloved grandparents enjoy the flavor of little children and try to stop them?

SacLA on Apr 22, 2015


After the Village, Lady in Water and Avatar, I didn't even bother with The Happening (thankfully). If M. Night were smart, he'd do what Ridley Scott is doing and make sequels to one of his most popular films: Unbreakable. Make it a trilogy, and he'll be redeemed to his former glory....unless he mucks it up AGAIN.

RAW_D on Apr 22, 2015


How does this guy keep getting movie deals? I think he must be learning from Uwe Bol in both finances and movie making.

Travisaurus on Apr 22, 2015


That's not knitted......or going to be good....
