The Visit Review: An Unpleasent Time At Grandma's House
The Visit centers on Rebecca and Tyler (Olivia DeJonge and Ed Oxenbould) who are making a documentary for their mother (Kathryn Hahn). The two siblings decide to visit their grandparents (Peter McRobbie and Deanna Dunagan) and record the events to give their mother some peace and closure with her parents. However as soon as the trip begin, Rebecca and Tyler begin to notice strange things dealing with their grandparents. From the grandmother's wild spasms in the night to the grandfather hiding things in the shed, the two siblings become very suspicious. What comes after next is tragedy that Rebecca and Tyler will not soon forget.
I will say this: The Visit was not the worst film from M.Night Shymalan; but it certainly does not help the director either. While it does have its good moments, this horror was too inconsistent in areas such as storytelling, characters and directing. The movie had all the makings of being entertaining and even scary time at the movies, but in the end: The Visit was just unwelcoming.
