The Visit review

The Visit, from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, can be a very tense film experience, but not necessarily for the reasons that you think! It’s a slow build that is worth the wait while you find yourself becoming vested in our characters throughout the film.

Before this film, M. Night Shyamalan has had some bit of a tragic road bump in his production career and you would think he’d go back to the basics that got his name in lights. But instead, he forges on in new and old territory by teaming up with the production company who gave us Paranormal Activity, and that alone, kept me on my toes.

The Visit is much along the lines of Paranormal Activity, where we watch two kids who are aspiring cinematographers, document their week-long vacation stay when they are sent to their grandparents house while their mother takes a cruise with her new boyfriend.

It all starts out fine and dandy in the opening days, but with this film from M. Night Shyamalan and Blum Productions, you sit on the edge of your seat, wondering and waiting for it! Whatever it might be.

And to be honest, it is a slow build of a story but as events unfold, it gets quite riveting. Not to mention, at times, there’s some great little tidbits of humor peppered throughout.

This film doesn’t break any molds and won’t wow you with any new head trip. Instead M. Night comes at you with a set of simple mind bending moments topped off with a tried and true classic shocker. And that’s all I’m going to say.

Everyone played their parts well and it really got me going in a spot or two.

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you catch this on TV or even if you drop a rental fee on it.
