“Bedtime here is 9:30pm. It’s best you don’t come out of your room after that.” Say that to a kid or a teenager, they probably wouldn’t care until they’ve learnt their lessons.
When a pair of siblings are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a visit, their grandparents warn them to stay in the room after 9:30pm.
However, some very strange things happen outside of their room on the first night of their sleepover. How strange? Well, that’s for you to find out when you watch M. Night Shyamlan’s “The Visit”.
Best known for his work on “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs”, writer-director Shyamalan finally returned to his horror roots through this upcoming found footage horror film. After debuting the film’s teaser poster on 23rd April, Universal Pictures unveiled its first trailer on YouTube today.
According to Empire Online, the movie was initially titled “Sundowning”, which refers to “a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia, which can present with agitation and mood swings.” This may very well refers to the siblings’ grandparents, who seem to experience this state of confusion.
The siblings are portrayed by “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” star Ed Oxenbould and newcomer Olivia DeJonge. “Parks and Recreation” actress Kathryn Hahn is also starring in the film as their mother.
Watch the first trailer of the movie below:
Scheduled for release on 11th September 2015, “The Visit” is produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, the producer of “Insidious” and “The Purge“. It was also executive produced by Mark Bienstock (Quarantine 2: Terminal), Steven Schneider (Insidious), and Ashwin Rajan (Devil).
