Newt's movie review

Shyamalan's strict use of simple colours and excellent use of sound to create an atmosphere are almost trademark of his work. It's a fair story with good acting, is filled with suspense and is not at all disappointing.

Ripley's movie review

Beautifully filmed with each shot framed to maximum effect. I didn't find it scary although it was creepy now and then and Howard was great. I figured out the ending early on so the big twist at the end wasn't a twist for me. One scene in the movie did shock me though. I didn't see it coming at all. Worth watching? I think so, even if only for the cinematography.
