M. Night Shyamalan is going back to his roots!
The low budget The Visit marks the director's first step back into the horror genre since 2008's The Happening, which even star Mark Wahlberg panned!
[ Video: The New Trailer For The Poltergeist Remake Is EVEN SCARIER! What The HECK?? ]
Hopefully, The Visit will be more in line with The Sixth Sense, M. Night's breakout hit.
It includes found footage — a popular horror storytelling method — so that's a start! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see if you think this movie looks genuinely scary — or just scary bad!!

M. Night Shyamalan is known for making movies with surprise endings, but we TRULY didn’t see this one coming!
The same year he wrote and directed his huge hit The Sixth Sense, Shyamalan also says he wrote Stuart Little and She’s All That, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook. Talk about crossing genres!
You won’t find M. Night’s name in the credits for She’s All That though because he was hired as a “ghost writer”. However, the man who IS credited with writing the movie is named R. Lee Fleming.
Hmm - M. Night, R. Lee. Sounds VERY similar!!! Are they the same person??? Is R. Lee who M. Night used to be before his high school crush gave him a makeover??? Oh the twist ending possibilities!!!

We were stoked to see Will and Jaden Smith working together again on the set of M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth, but were relatively clueless as to what it was about.
Sure, we knew the father-son duo crash landed on Earth in the year 3012 and had to struggle for survival or something, but what else? WHAT ELSE!?
Well, thanks to the upcoming panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, we know! An official plot synopsis has been released, so here it is:

We always like to start with the good news!
Will Smith and his son Jaden are finally making another movie together and we have a new picture of them together to prove it!
After Earth is a science fiction flick with Stephen Gaghan, writer of Traffic and Syriana, penning the script!
There is not-quite-as-good news, too!
M. Night Shyamalan is still directing.
Yeah, the very same guy who had Marky Mark running from trees in The Happening and straight-up ruined Avatar: The Last Airbender.
We're sure he's a nice guy but his last few films have been stinkers.
He is famous for surprise endings — we sincerely hope the twist in After Earth is that it ROCKS!
