The Visit

Rated PG-13
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Run Time: 1 hour 34 minutes
Release: September 2015

Movie Summary from IMDb
Two siblings become incredibly frightened by their grandparents disturbing behavior, while visiting them on vacation.

I ranked this movie 4 of 5 stars
The Visit is a movie about a brother (Ed Oxenbould) and sister (Olivia DeJonge) that go to meet their Grandparents for the first time. Their mother (Kathryn Hahn) had a falling out with her parents as a teen and they are reaching out to meet their Grandkids. While they go to visit, they encourage their mother to go on a trip as well. The siblings plan to document their visit in video to share later.

The setting is in a small town, and everyone has great things to say about the Grandparents. But the comments about the Grandparents are reflecting in the very people they see. A bedtime of 9:30 PM is implemented from the start, that is when they really start to notice things are ..... odd.......

M. Night Shyamalan outdid himself with the twists in this movie. It seems odd that parents that want to make amends with their daughter, won't talk about her. Or what about the ban from the basement? And what is the obsession with having the girl climb in the over to clean it? And why are they always absent when the kids Skype their Mother?

The Visit keeps you enthralled and makes you second guess what you expect in a Horror movie. Definitely a must see movie!


I will be posting reviews on movies I've seen. I watch just about anything and I wanted to share my opinions on what I have seen. And the worse the critic reviews the more likely I am to see it.

What to expect:
I will use the 5 star ranking, 1 star the worst and 5 the best.
I will post a picture of the movie and the summary with my review.
I will do my best to avoid spoilers.

If you have movie ideas for me to watch, let me know. And I'm happy to discuss your opinion on a movie or about my review.
