​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE VISIT (2013)

Director M. Night Shyamalan has been more down than up in the last few years. Well, I'd say The Visit (2015) is good Night. Kathryn Hahn agrees to let her young teen kids take a train for a five-day visit with their grandparents, who they've never met. Hahn hasn't talked to them in 15 years after leaving home following an incident that she won't talk about. The kids are also planning to film a documentary about meeting Nana and Pop-Pop so this becomes a found footage movie... (but not, for the most part, a shakycam movie thank goodness). As we see through the kids' taping, the grandparents are more than a littlle...strange. Nana (Deanna Dunagan) gets a little loony when the sun goes down. Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) explains to the kids that she suffers from "sundowning" and that hey, they're old, and this is the kinda stuff that happens when you get old. So kids, stay in your room after 9:30! But how much stranger will they get? The answer is...lots! The Visit has a tongue firmly in cheek for much of this, but also can be creepy and uncomfortable as Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) find out the real story! Kids are good, as are Dunagan and McRobbie. There's one truly disgusting moment I sure could have done without but The Visit is worth a viewing. It will change the way you see Yahtzee forever! #126 of 2016

SHOULD TLA SEE THIS?: Only if she doesn't guess the twist in the first ten minutes, like she did when she saw The Sixth Sense!
