    M. Night Shyamalan's New Horror Movie Actually Looks Terrifying—Watch the Creepy Trailer Now!

      It might be way too soon to say this but we're feeling optimistic so what the hell: welcome back, M. Night Shyamalan!

      The trailer for his latest film, The Visit, was posted online late last week, and not only is Shyamalan returning to his horror film roots, but it looks like he's doing it with a good movie. Finally!

      Admit it; his film track record as of late has been less than stellar. And that's putting it nicely. These are the last four films he's made:

      After Earth (bomb)
      Devil (meh)
      The Last Airbender (bigger bomb)
      The Happening (even star Mark Wahlberg hated it)

      Basically, instead of being known for his creepy, unique film twists like he used to be, he's now known for making bad movies and/or maybe ghostwriting She's All That.

      Depending on how you feel about his earlier work, you think his last good movie was either Sixth Sense or Signs or maybe even The Village. Well, hopefully The Visit will mark his triumphant return to the genre. Feedback on the trailer has been mostly positive, so watch it above and let us know what you think!

      Here is the log line for The Visit, from Universal Pictures and coming to theaters Sept. 11, 2015: "Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister 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."

      Side note: We're already a fan of this movie because it stars Kathryn Hahn.

    One of the absolute worst film makers in Hollywood.

    Looks horrible. The guy is a gimmick director to begin with. But he shot his load in his first few movies. He should be banned from making movies ever again for giving us this scene:

    He's a one trick twist ending pony. He can't write for shit either. His dialogue is corny and his stories are impossible to take seriously.

    I for one was bored in the Sixth Sense. I think many people were until they got to the twist ending and then all of the sudden the movie was genius. The only movie I thought was any good was Unbreakable. I guess I liked about 2/3 of Signs.

    I thought Signs was the biggest joke of all. I know Shymalamadingdong tried to make it really about some dude getting back his faith, but at the end of the day you have scary aliens that die from... water. Naked, practically unarmed aliens at that. You could kill them by pissing. It would be like Superman invading a planet made out of Kryptonite.

    Brilliant.

    I hear pilot for that TV show he is doing for Fox with Matt Dillon is supposed to be really good. Maybe he should make the transition to TV. It may be a better medium for him. Many of his movies seem to be better TV show episodes than full movies. I think The Village would have been a good Twilight Zone episode. In fact, it felt like a really long Twilight Zone episode.

    I know I'll end up watching this. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint. I have yet to watch a movie that really scares/freaks me out but I'll keep searching though.

    That's why I only liked 2/3 of the movie. I thought he set up a really good movie and then ruined it with a really bad third act.

    I think it is stupid that an alien race that can be killed easily by water would invade a planet that its surface is mostly covered with water.

    Although I would have loved to see a sequel where the U.S. military go to war with the aliens with every soldier armed with a super soaker water gun and water balloons. Would have been great.

    I always find his movies interesting to watch, I don't really get all the hate for him, although I might have bad taste in movies, I don't know.

    This. He got lucky early on and lost his mojo completely thereafter.
