You can’t fault M. Night Shyamalan for not trying. The premise of the film may be preposterous, but it’s certainly original and an intriguing new playing field for horror to unfold. It’s in the execution where it often stumbles. Choosing consistently to swing wide, leading to some over-the-top scenarios that can come off unintentionally hilarious. Some clunky dialogue and stiff performances also add to the overall cheesiness. Then there’s the mandatory Shyamalan twist that also displays some writing ingenuity, but is too much of a logical stretch to totally take seriously.
