The kids are greeted at the train station by Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie), who can’t wait to spend the week with their grandchildren. Things are going great until the siblings begin to notice increasingly strange and hostile behavior from their dear old grandparents.

The movie follows a pair of siblings who set off to stay with their grandparents for a bit, where they discover strange and terrifying things happening at night. It’s presented in a found footage style, though it doesn’t always look like one.

There’s no denying that the quality of M. Night Shyamalan‘s movies has fallen hard in recent years. In fact, that game with the little yodeling man on The Price is Right pretty much perfectly sums up the director’s career so far.

That aside, no matter how impossibly bad it gets people always seem to still be interested in what he’s doing next. That says a lot about what he’s done in the past, because deep down they (and I!) hope that he one day finds his way back to the much more memorable fare he offered us in his earlier flicks…that or it’s out of morbid curiosity, looking only to see how much worse the years-long trainwreck can get.

Shyamalan’s next attempt at redemption is titled The Visit, and the first teaser poster for the movie has been released. You can check it out below.

“A compass I learnt when I was surveying, it’ll… it’ll point you true north from where your standing, but it’s got no advice about the swamps, deserts and chasms that you’ll encounter along the way. If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp, what’s the use of knowing true north?”

We’re all familiar with Abraham Lincoln. We know he freed the slaves. We know his distinctive look. He’s even on our money. But how much do we really know? I for one can admit that I did not know much more than the basics, about the same as the average person would know (I fell asleep in history class a lot, what can I say), but as I’ve gotten older my interest in history has grown exponentially, and lessons via documentary or biopic and so on can be just as appealing as the latest popcorn flick.

With movies, however, we’re always wondering in the back of our brain just how historically accurate the story we’re being told really is. And this will happen no less while viewing Lincoln, the latest film from director Steven Spielberg which tells the story of our 16th president and his fight to pass the 13th Amendment, the amendment that aimed to put an end to slavery.
