What makes difficult to review this movie is the fact that M. Night Shyamalan has now become the laughtingstock of the movie world (even though most of his movies are still financially successful) but we shouldn’t forget that when this movie was released, he was still a promising and highly regarded director. Anyway, many people think that it started to go bad for him with this movie but I don... read more

What a beautiful film! It is shot so perfectly with beautiful music and memorable characters. This is one of Shyamalan's best films. It is such a shame that this one did not get much oscar recognition like all his other latest films.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The residents of a small rural village live in harmony, except for fear of the mysterious creatures in the woods beyond the village. Now the villagers believe that the alliance between them and the monsters has been broken.
Most people agree that this is where Shyamalan definitely went downhill. I may not have liked Signs, but at least it had potential to be... read more

In a quiet, isolated village in olde Pennsylvania, lies a pact between the people of the village and the creatures in the surrounding woods: the townspeople dont enter the woods, and the creatures dont enter the village. The pact stays true for many years, until Lucius Hunt seeks medical supplies from the towns beyond the wood.

Watched films in 2023 (149 movies items)

"8.4. Disney+ Shamasingalongin yritys folk horror -maastossa on alkuun ihmeen pätevää pällistelyä ja Roger Deakinsin kamera tallentaa miljöön värittömyyden hienosti. Twistailu ei kiinnosta, ei myöskään ärsytä (mitä nyt välähdysmäiset ai niin -huomiot naurattavat), mutta miten se on rakennettu on laiskaa ja kuin valmiin elokuvan päälle roiskittu. Täysin tarpeetontakin, mutta ohjaajaltaan sitä toki odottaakin. Sisäinen logiikka ei taatusti kestä lähempää tarkastelua ja l"

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"Covington, Pennsylvania A actual county in Pennsylvania. But for all accounts, the film events don’t exist. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: The thing is you can’t. The town folks don’t want the outside world, to know where they live. And would to keep it that way."


Kyle Ellis posted a review 1 year, 8 months ago

“Of the four films of M Night Shyamalan's that are panned as bad- The Village, The Happening, Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender- I thought The Village(having just finished re-watching it yesterday and was not sure what to make of it at first) was the least bad of the four, to me the other three are as bad as they're said to be.

I wasn't expecting to like it after so many uncharitable things both here and elsewhere and by how it was marketed, but I sort of did. It does look great with beautiful scenery and brooding cinematography and the score is very haunting, eerie quality about it. There are also some genuine jolts and poignancy in the first half, and The Village with a great concept does start off intriguingly.

The best thing about it though is the cast. Willia” read more

"Re-watch - Oct. 15th I wanted to see what my daughter would think of The Village since she's enjoyed all of Shyamalan's films so far. And she did, but when it ended she deemed it not spooky enough. I hadn't seen it since it was in theatres, & at the time I recall walking out of it thinking the twist was a messed up one. Now, however, I find it less messed up & more just an overreaction taken to an extreme. Ultimately I was glad she gave me an opportunity to revisit it. Streaming on Hulu"
