I first saw The Sixth Sense as a teenager, before I had any real interest in horror. That movie disturbed me deeply. The terrifying scenarios and the way they were shot resonated uncannily with my own nightmares.
Since then, it’s become popular to condemn Shyamalan’s movies. While I remained a fan longer than most (I loved The Village), I was forced to agree with the majority sentiment that he’d lost his touch.
Then I saw The Visit, and I was reminded why, more than a decade later, I still have trouble making myself watch The Sixth Sense.
The Visit creeped me out.
