Being that Shyamalan is a huge guilty pleasure for me, I am ****ing excited about an R rated film. especially one where people start offing themselves in brutal ways. I know he gets a lot of flack for being a one trick pony, but he does suspense really well, and he understands story structure. in this day and age of hack film makers putting out straight to DVD trash, people should be happy that there are people out there making films instead of just movies.

Bad move, he's gonna lose a huge portion of his fanbase on this one. I guess his producers think they'll gain even more fans, but do we really need MORE R-rated horror flicks out there? What I appreciated Shyamalan for was his creepy suspense that kids could still enjoy. So much for that...

i beg to differ.
he wont lose a portion of his fan base...thats ridiculous to say without even seeing the movie.
he actually wrote the script the fist time aiming for pg13, but when he gave the draft to fox, they told him to hold no bars and pull no stops.
i think it is just expanding his creativity. because that was he does that few directors do now-a-days....be creative.

no point to this movie. their running from nothing. turns out that all the plants in the world are releasing a toxin that causes people to kill themselves. you basically have everyone in the movie, marky mark, running from the wind. that's it! just the wind. there's no twist ending here.

My mind is totally boggled by the modern day horror fan. I go and read "The Rotten Truth" and it's about the push for r-rated horror from fans. I go on the horror message boards, and read multiple threads about how horror is lame and to much PG-13 **** has been coming out. and then I come and read this thread and i see that some prick name "Homeboy" has posted "do we really need MORE R-rated horror flicks out there?" WTF!? People!!

I am really excited for this movie. Shyamalan makes films that are not only spooky, but have deeper things going on as well. I cant wait for this.

I am a Shyam-fanatic myself and am more than excited than this movie is coming out and over the moon about the weird vibes that I will get seeing it on friday the 13th. Though that R rating does kick out some people from my movie circle, doesn't matter I would go and see this alone if I had to. Horror is the best and Shyamalan is my film god.

Why should there be a point to any movie? There are millions of movie out there that doesn't have a point. Not any movie should need to have a moral or a message. However, for an M. Night film, twist or not, people should see it because his movies are some of the few original ideas out there left. All you usually get are spoofs, remakes, superhero movies, and sequels.
