This wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, and at the moment, we’re all going to have to take this as a compliment. It had some legitimately creepy moments, as Shyamalan’s movies always do. It’s kind of a shame how weird the trajectory of his movies has been. I really loved The Village. Sixth Sense was great! Unbreakable? Strange, but well told and strong. Signs? Signs me up! And then it all goes downhill, slowly, but surely. Until we get here. A goofy movie that relies on kids telling jokes and the tired plot of someone inexplicably recording everything. Who in this world is recording everything? Don’t know anyone, haven’t even seen anyone around who always on a camera on them and their friends. Anyway, kids go to stay with weird and scary grandparents. Totally worth a watch if you’re doing something else while it’s on, but I don’t know, be careful if you’re going to try and watch it full-on.
