2. The Visit (2015)
M. Night Shyamalan, the man who (fifteen or so years ago) was supposed to be the Hitchcock of our generation, decided to make his “comeback” in the form of a found footage film. Way to alienate the majority of the people who have been sick of this method of movie making for years.
The first problem is that this flick doesn’t need to be a found footage movie. There is absolutely no reason for it other than a marketing gimmick. Actually, it may have been a little more palatable as a traditional creepy movie. Problem number two is that this has opening credits. I’m pretty sure you don’t make a found footage movie with opening credits, as it kind of shatters the intended effect. And the third problem is that it is aimed at a younger, teenage audience.
Years ago, M. Night Shyamalan made his movies for the general public, young and old alike.
