The Village Review:

Night Shyamalan is a great storyteller and The Village was his last great movie before he lost it completely with The Happening (not true anymore, The Visit is excellent). A little like his other movies (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable), this movie is built around a couple of excellent twists, which makes the story both clever and suspenseful. The second best thing is the cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody, Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt… famous names and familiar faces just keep appearing in The Village. The third might be the woods settings and beautiful imagery.

Now, horror fans must be warned that this not as much a horror-oriented movie as we would like it to be. It is not scary and features barely any gore or blood at all. It is probably the biggest drawback of it, especially since it was advertised as “one of the scariest horror movies” back at the time of its release.

Watch it if you haven’t, it is an often underrated watch. Yet, to it, I would recommend instead the extremely similar yet much darker-themed The Brotherhood of the Wolf.
