His filmmaking career started off with such a bang and then about midway through his 2006 film release of Lady in the Water things started to go south. The Happening (2008), The Last Airbender (2010) and After Earth (2013) were all duds.
Of course we are talking about auteur filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, whose latest film, The Visit, suggests that he’s learned his lesson and is back to making films that his early fans can once again warm to.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment will begin the New Year with the Jan. 5 release of DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions of The Visit, a genuinely scary horror tale complete with a “Shyamalan” twist.
The ARR is 116 days and ticket sales for this post-Labor Day theatrical release were a nice $64.4 million.
Bonus features include two featurettes — “Becca’s Photos” and “The Making of The Visit.”
