Watch The Visit


"No one loves you like your grandparents."

Innovative director M. Night Shyamalan returns to the inventive style of his early work with this film, which is both suspenseful and comical. As is typical for the man known for his thought-provoking thrillers, there is a big twist partway through the film, but the focus is more on the characters and the entertaining ways in which they interact with one another.

Becca and Tyler are two young children who live with their mother. They enjoy a fairly tranquil life until the day that their mother decides to send them to their grandparents' for a visit. At first, this seems like a wonderful opportunity for them to get some quality time in with Nana and Pop Pop. They are doting grandparents, and they seem delighted to have the children as guests in their cozy home.

However, the children begin to notice odd behavior from them, especially their grandma. Part of the time she is sweet and kind, but sometimes she makes very strange requests of them. Other times, she seems to have malicious intent. What's more, the children do not feel safe in the house at night. Strange noises and sudden movements startle them, and they long to return to the safety of home.

When they do get back, however, things seem to take a turn for the worse. Their mother begins to wonder just what went on during that fateful visit and what can be done to set things right. Shyamalan's tested suspense techniques keep the chills coming, but the quirky material makes this just as much of a comedy, especially for fans of the horror genre.
