    The Visit

    ★★★½

    The Visit (2015) gets a rough ride in my humble opinion. It’s a very good movie and M. Night Shyamalan proves he can do suspense and horror in an extremely productive way. This movie has that The Blair Witch Project (1999) feel to it with documentary footage, shot by the lead actors, being the only medium to view the story. Shyamalan uses this method extremely effectively to generate eerie and creepy suspense, notably the scene under the porch and during the closing moments. The Visit is definitely the scariest film I’ve seen from the director, it also marked his return to form.

The first two thirds of film consists of one or two well thought out characters accompanied by a handful of eerie…

    Glass

    ★★★★

    I wanted a low scale film, no bells and whistles, a similar aesthetic to Unbreakable (2000), a good screenplay, quality direction with a trademark twist or two and solid performances from James McAvoy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson and you know what...I got the lot. Glass (2019) finishes off the Eastrail 177 trilogy in style with Director M. Night Shyamalan finding the right balance to compliment both the outstanding Unbreakable and it’s worthy sequel Split (2016). McAvoy raises the…
