The last time a movie about a terrifying elderly relative was brought to the big screen, it bypassed said screen and debuted on Netflix. Gramma, based on a killer short story by Stephen King, sadly did not translate well and missed out on injecting genuine fear into a benign setup. That’s not going to stop cinematic rule-breaker M. Night Shyamalan from right that wrong though with his newest venture, The Visit.
As you may have gathered, the film follows a young brother and sister who wind up on their grandparents’ farm for an extended stay. Their week-long trip soon goes sour when the siblings realize that the golden oldies are up to no good, and with Shyamalan writing and directing and Jason Blum producing, that’s bound to be something utterly horrifying. And possibly from another planet.
Whatever it is, based on the first one-sheet that’s dropped, you probably wouldn’t want to stick around to find out. Check out the cross-stitched artwork below and keep your eyes peeled for the first teaser that’s set to arrive online this Thursday.
Starring Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, prepare yourself for a trip to Gramma’s when The Visit opens in theaters on September 11, 2015.
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ The Visit. Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.
