M. Night Shyamalan’s Horror Movie About Grandparents Looks (Unintentionally?) Hilarious

Who knew M. Night Shyamalan could be this funny? Anyone who sat through The Happening might not be able to believe it, but Shyamalan has managed to make a horror movie about something even less scary than plants: grandma and grandpa.

The trailer for The Visit starts as two kids make a trip to their grandparents’ house, and at first Nana and Poppop seem nice enough … until they start testing the bounds of old geezer eccentricity with cackling, and shotguns, and bodily contortions that do not remotely resemble your granddad’s rehabilitation exercises. Just wait until you see how granny wants to clean the oven.
