This this new M. Night Shyamalan movie, two siblings go to rural Pennsylvania to visit their grandparents, who they've never met. Their mother had left home twenty-years ago with a boyfriend (their father) and hasn't spoken to them since. But they tracked her down on the internet and they want to get to know their grandchildren.
So they go, while she takes a cruise ship trip with her current boyfriend. The girl is making a documentary of the entire event, so everything we see is what we're seeing through her two cameras. At first everything is great. They are a little reserved-and quirky. But by the second day things start becoming strange. The grandmother starts becoming aggressive and on the first night they see her vomiting all over the floor. Then, on a trip into town the grandfather becomes paranoid and attacks a random pedestrian. There's also something that he's keeping locked up in the shed, which the boy, much to his dismay, discovers. Let's just say the the end of the week the two kids are ready to flee.
As a viewer, I went back and forth thinking something sinister is happening to thinking they're just crazy because of dementia and old age. But there's a very good explanation-and surprise, as to what's really going on. The movie is a bit slow-going at first and I found the boy really irritating (he's a "rapper"), but once the weirdness begin you're hooked. THE VISIT is a genuinely creepy movie, one of the best horror movies I've watched in years. Highly recommended.
