    Omg yes, it looks absolutely terrifying.

    I don’t know… I’ve been let down by MNight and his rather pointless “twists” several times so I don’t like to get my hopes up. Sixth Sense was great but after that it’s all hokey to me. I can see this being very interesting, then going nowhere, then having no real solid explanation. But I’ll give it a chance anyway because I’m a horror junkie!

    • Becks1 says:

      The thing with his movies is that there is “always” a twist, so you expect it so its not a twist at that point. Kind of like the thriller genre that is so popular now – Gone Girl, Girl on the Train, etc. You know there’s always going to be “something” so personally I just skip ahead until I get to that part and figure it out.

      I do think his movies have become more “horror” than they used to be, I love Sixth Sense and I saw the Village and Signs but I don’t think I could handle the one about the kids….the Visit? or Split.

      • Anners says:

        I really liked the Village, Signs, and Unbreakable. I know his movies are considered hokey, but I think he does a great job of making interesting, unique, visually arresting films. I have crap taste and I will own it lol! His older movies are the kind of scary that are accessible to me – more creepy and psychological without gore and jump scares for the most part. This one, however, looks really scary and I doubt I’ll be able to watch it lol!

      • Emm says:

        I’m one of those people that actually really liked The Village, I watch it again and again. I liked the whole idea and the actors were great, I even liked the music. The monsters were pretty cheesy but other than that I liked it. Also loved sixth sense and liked signs, and unbreakable. The happening was weird because Mark Wahlberg isn’t a very good actor outside of action movies IMO. I haven’t seen any others though but this one looks like it will be a good one.

      • bettyrose says:

        Same! I really liked the Village. The twist was easy enough to guess (since we spent the entire moving looking for it) but I loved the aesthetic and pacing of the movie.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I liked Sixth Sense, the Village, Signs, and Spilt.

      • Becks1 says:

        I liked the Village as well, I’m not disparaging it! (I don’t think I’ve seen one of his movies since Signs, but in these comments I remember that I did see Unbreakable and liked that one.)

        And please, @Anners – dont say you have crap taste. I HATE that. We all have our own tastes and that’s fine. One person might love something, another person might hate it – neither one has better taste than the other.

      • Anners says:

        Oh dear @Becks! I didn’t think you were disparaging the films, I was agreeing that I like some of them, too. And you’re right, we shouldn’t say our tastes are bad, but my recent posts included not hating Lena Dunham’s ensemble, liking a bit of camo print now and then, being terrified of not-so-scary movies, and admitting to the fact that I used to (and still kind of do and hate myself for it) find Armie Hammer attractive. The sum total left me feeling a bit fringe or basic. But I’ll own it haha!

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        I feel the same about the twists.

        I enjoyed sixth sense and signs because there was a great cast and storyline. It was thrilling even once you discovered what was going on.
        The village I had figured out once I saw the lock box in the background.

      • Elizabeth Phillips says:

        I really like The Village, but I find that most people miss the more subtle twist. No matter how far you go to get away from evil, you can never succeed because the potential for evil is in every one of us. What keeps us alive – our blood – is the bad color.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        I did get that part about the potential for evil is in us all and good intentions are not always the best. But that’s such an overused premise. I just wanted a stronger storyline. And with such a great cast!

    • Amanduh says:

      Just wanted to agree with everything you just said lol.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I hear you. He has been hit or miss. The Others was good, the film about the trees/earth missed its mark. The Sixth Sense was great. So was the film about the visit to the grandparents( name escapes me). I think this could be one of his good ones, but ad edits are tricky. Sometimes they only show the good in a short time, and the feature film stinks. Sometimes they are exciting, and a true preview of more exciting content. Time will tell.

    • Lucy2 says:

      The sixth sense was brilliant, and I thought unbreakable was pretty good as well. Signs was where he started to drop off for me, it was good up until a point.

  3. Case says:

    His first several movies were quite good and I love a good twist ending, but I feel like his twists have gotten more and more outlandish and almost campy.

  4. Kkat says:

    Ooo I want to see this!
    I hope he doesn’t screw up the ending lol

  5. Alarmjaguar says:

    Phew, that does look totally creepy! Maybe it doesn’t need a twist, since what we most fear as a society is getting old and that’s right there in the title and premise. But, yeah, wasn’t someone saying on the Last Night in Soho thread that they read the synopsis of scary movies rather than seeing them? That will definitely be me with this one.

    • Becks1 says:

      That was me! (and apparently several others lol.) It’s why I can read horror and used to love Stephen King but can’t really watch it.

  6. BW says:

    The problem with “Old” is that it’s my life. I swear I was 35 yesterday. I don’t know where the last 30 years went. Only I didn’t spend them on a beautiful beach. I spent them in a cubicle. And my nephew is graduating high school. I swear he was 5 years old two weeks ago.

    I guess I could make a Life’s a Beach, and then you Die joke. Too on the nose?

    • Jenn says:

      lol!!! Apparently Old’s script is based on a French graphic novel called “Sandcastle,” and “Life’s a Beach and Then You Die” synopsizes it perfectly

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Never the best thing when you’re taking too much from other stuff. I remember years ago a review said MNS was untalented And lazy taking too much from other stories.

        Reddit just have me all I needed to know about sandcastles. I’ll pass on the film.

  7. Bibliomommy96 says:

    I love all his movies! I can’t wait to see this one

  8. Abby says:

    This looks intense and good!

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I’m in. But I have to confess, I was actually angry at the end of The Village lol.

  10. lemonylips says:

    I’m gonna watch this just to see how the kids got their Hulk -fits all sizes but without Stark technology swimsuits.

    • BW says:

      I was wondering the same thing about the kid’s swimsuits.

      I also wondered why people’s clothing didn’t age and disintegrate.

  11. Teebee says:

    Ahhh, Vanessa. All I can say is if you’re that thirsty, have a drink of water…

  12. Robin says:

    That looks really good. When the kids appear from behind the rocks looking older, it reminded me of Picnic at Hanging Rock. I’m up for watching it.
