Oh ye of little faith abandon not your quest to find a viable M. Night Shyamalan flick for one has been delivered!
Becca, a budding young documentary film aficionado & her younger brother Tyler are sent off for a week to stay with the grandparents they've never met. All seems to be cozy in their small town country home until nana & pop-pop start acting strange. With mom away on a cruise and seemingly no way out the kids delve deeper into the issues of their grandparents trying to make sense of their bizarre behavior. Interesting and captivating from start to finish. The kids are great, not at all annoying or polished and fake like some child actors can be. The story is revealed at a good pace as each occurrence of strange behavior is explained of by one grandparent or another. Still, there seems to be something that just isn't right. There is a definite "What a twist!" moment in classic M. Night fashion, let's face it if there wasn't one we would all be disappointed. Biddy safe but still packs a good grip with the prospect of terror looming over their heads.
Ha! I drew first blood! Horrorthon!
