Love him or hate him, M. Night manages to stir some interesting debate among movie fans. Just check out our latest episode of The Movie Club Podcast in which I defended ‘Lady in the Water’ against four soul-less Scrunts who tried everything in their power to get between me and the giant eagle. Luckily I had the Tartutic on my side.
Well crossword puzzles, grass dogs and cereal boxes aside, there’s no denying that a new M. Night film is an event. For anyone who feel as though they’ve been burnt by his last two offerings, I urge you to check out the new trailer for ‘The Happening’. There’s not much too it at this point, but it’s definitely ominous. It looks like some unusual epidemic is sweeping the world and cause world wide chaos. Based on this trailer, it seems to be some sort of mass suicide induced by momentary insanity. SWEET. Some of these scenes remind me of John Carpenter’s ‘Village of the Damned’ remake, in which the albino children use suggestion to force people to kill themselves. Remember that scene when the Mom sticks her hand in the boiling water!! MAAAANNN!!! That was totally…cheesy. Or even better, when the eye doctor unleashes some toxic eye drops in her own eye! Great stuff. Anyways, check out the trailer below and let the M. Night slamming/loving begin!
BONUS VIDEO: Loving tribute to the character David from JC’s Village of the Damned. Enjoy.
