M. Night Shyamalan Gets Back to Scares in First 'The Visit' Trailer

April 23, 2015

The Visit

"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:

You can still check out the teaser poster for The Visit right here.

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.

Another found footage? Why? Another this kinda story? WHY??

Another ?? Why?

SallySpider on Apr 23, 2015


Hate found footage but it doesn't look half bad

Could not even finish the thing, who gives this hack the money to make these crap movies?

Brian Sleider on Apr 23, 2015


i lost my faith in Shyamalan long time ago. long long time ago

I predict another box office fiop for Shamaylannadingdong.

Trey Wilson on Apr 23, 2015


His only actual flop was Lady in the Water. Even After Earth was profitable after accounting the worldwide totals. Now that doesn't mean the movies didn't suck, they just weren't comercial flops.

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Apr 24, 2015


He hasn't made a profitable film since The Village. Learn how box office works.

After Earth $130 million budget $243.7 million box office/ The Happening Budget $48 million Box office - $163.4 million Box office/ TLA - Budget $150 million $319 million Box office. Yes I know the fact that there's a lot of gray territory between "hit" and "bomb" territory, and most studios consider a film a success once it doubles it's budget. But his last 3 films weren't the "flops" that people believe them to be. Just because they sucked doesn't mean they flopped.

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Sep 5, 2015


PLEASE learn how box office works before making these idiotic statements. After marketing, etc. After Earth cost around $200M. So your simple mind is undoubtedly screaming $43M PURE PROFIT! Umm, NO. Not by a long shot. Read this and LEARN! STUDIOS ONLY RECOUP 55% OF BOX OFFICE! GOT THAT? That means After Earth only recouped about $133M. Now tell me smart stuff, is 133M MORE or LESS than $200M? I'll give you a few hours to contemplate that.

wrath_of_fett on Sep 5, 2015


I see you've got it all figured out..... yet you make idiotic assumptions like "So your simple mind is undoubtedly screaming $43M PURE PROFIT!".... The only thing I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around is how you have time to troll a 5 month old post. Seriously, get a life..I'm done.

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Sep 6, 2015


Just hope no-one runs themselves over with a lawn mower. Will give it a go.

Carpola on Apr 23, 2015


Shooting in a certain way doesn't make it "not original" If you use that logic then no movie is ever original if it's shot similar to another

steve on Apr 23, 2015


Blows my mind that people still give this guy money to make movies. Of course, Unbreakable is one of my all-time fav but it sure doesn't make up for the 4-5 stinkers he's made since.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Apr 23, 2015


Not even a little scary. Wan did it better.

DAVIDPD on Apr 23, 2015


New low for Mr. Shyamalan.

Jameson Cyr on Apr 23, 2015


I love his movies

ErrorSapiens on Apr 23, 2015


I only enjoy the Happening.

SallySpider on Apr 23, 2015



Sascha Dikiciyan on Apr 25, 2015


Looks good. Probably isn't... I hate this bitter asshole I've become.

I think that looked fucking awesome. Some old folks can be so goddamn creepy. This takes it to a place I would not want to see. I'm all for it. Please don't have some stupid fucking twist.

grimjob on Apr 23, 2015


Indeed, old people can be fuckin creepy...

ari smulders on Apr 23, 2015


Creepy... I'm sure there's going to be a twist here....

TheOct8pus on Apr 23, 2015


To be honest this wasn't that bad, but the found footage looks totally redundant. It's a gimmick and ads nothing to the suspense of this movie... Old people can be very scary, I always remember the scene from IT whit the old woman turning to evil, it was creepy as hell!

ari smulders on Apr 23, 2015


"Found footage", eh? That's unfortunate.

cuckoozey on Apr 24, 2015


Yep. Counts me out. Too bad, usually enjoy his work.

avconsumer2 on Apr 24, 2015


Ohhh, this guy again….nice trailer, bad movie.

HerCar on Apr 24, 2015


Shyamalan and Nolan should make a sequel to the happening together. Dark Knight trilogy was such a waste.

SallySpider on Apr 24, 2015


What's comical is that the Sally Spider account was stolen from someone else too. So you're basically helping to troll some poor sap that got trolled before you. Congratulations you just got outsmarted by an arsetroll.

sod-sailer on Apr 24, 2015


Says the one who is the arsetroll, well done.. nope you didnt do that well enough 🙂

SallySpider on May 25, 2015


Shaymalan, Bay and Channing Tatum should all work on one project! People may actually die from how bad it will be!

Jimmy Love on Apr 24, 2015


Bay movies are epic.

Н.И. + on Apr 24, 2015


ly bad!

Jimmy Love on Apr 24, 2015


hahahahahhhHa he said chaning tatum i die from just hearing his name...i will be carrying a defibrillator to the showing of xmen apocalypse

Jaren Davis on Apr 24, 2015


Tatum is pretty funny in the Jump Street Flicks.

Brian Sleider on Apr 24, 2015


I hope the twist is that it isn't actually found footage

Bounty 4 Zuckuss on Apr 24, 2015


Or its a actually mold driving them crazy or a gas leak! Or the fucking trees!

timnimbus on Apr 24, 2015


Doesn't look promising.

Edward Curtis on Apr 24, 2015


Looks like M Nights take on Paranormal Activity 3.

ragethorn on Apr 24, 2015


I can't wait for Cinema sins to tear this apart. There's enough holes in the trailer alone.

R3last on Apr 24, 2015


"Would you mind getting in the oven to clean it?" What?! LMAO!

John Doe on Apr 25, 2015


Nothing about that trailer makes me think Shyamalan doesn't suck anymore. A clip playing on Hulu is so completely stupid I didn't even know what I was watching until "From M. Night Shyamalan" came on the screen. Then I was like "Ok, that makes sense".
