No one loves you like your grandparents
Two children are sent to their grandparents house to spend a week with their grandparents while their single mom goes on a relaxing vacation with her boyfriend. One of the kids, Becca, decides to film a documentary about her grandparents in order to help her mom reconnect with her parents and also find out some things about her parents as well. While filming the documentary, however, Becca and her little brother, Tyler, discover a dark secret about their grandparents.
Review of The Visit by Peter Walkden
Two siblings, Becca, and Tyler, get on a train and decide to take have a vacation to meet their grandparents for the first time. As the young children get to know their grandma and grandad more and more, they soon discover some strange behaviour and the two children become more concerned and frightened.
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, the film has been made like a primary B Grade style which is very different from the director's previous work (Unbreakable and Signs, etc.). The film even relies on the use of "found footage" style of filming as young Tyler uses his video camera to document and capture the bizarre and horrific moments which the grandparents keep displaying. The Visit is a tense film to watch. Because as film it can feel very realistic!
When it comes to grandparents, most of us could relate to spending time with them and can understand what to expect. This film matches those elements and of course, takes this concept to the next level. As a horror film, I remember laughing at selected moments and other times, finding myself holding my breath little tighter as the film builds with suspense. The film raises many questions and thankfully delivers the answers by the closing credits with a classic M. Night Shyamalan twist reveal.
Overall, I enjoyed The Visit. Director M. Night Shyamalan goes back to basics when it comes to making and still manages to deliver good scares, tension and a surprising twist ending. Worth your time for those who enjoy a solid horror.
