The Visit Review:

After turkeys such as After Earth or The Happening, I guess everyone was wondering where did the genius of M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, The Village) go. Fortunately, he seems to have found back the inspiration for this one is simply one of the best movies of this year.

The Visit is the very stressful story of two kids who visit their grandparents for the first time – expect these two elderlies turn out to be a complete nutcase. The story is both original and scary. It is also well paced, gradually building great suspense and containing virtually no lengthy moments nor slow bits. The two kids characters are endearing enough. They are not your usual lame stereotype but clever kids whose lines are always funny or relevant. As for the two grandparents, their performance alternates between being brilliantly disturbing and making you feel sorry for them (the movie uses well on the elderly mental disorder problem).

The Visit is also a very scary movie at times. It contains multiples scenes of horror, including a few insanely decadent ones, and can boast of making me cover my eyes a couple of times (mostly out of disgust). The movie is best watched without knowing too much in advance. Watching the trailer is ok, but more would ruin the suspense. Trust us, watch it, it is the one movie that will make you hate elderly people!
