Now let's make sure we have everything you will need for the week. Socks: check, coat: check, yahtzee: check and maybe an extremely sharp knife..What? You never know what will happen at Nana and Pop-pop's house. After several years of silence between a mother (Kathryn Hahn) and her parents she decides to let her kids Rebecca (Olivia Dejonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) visit their grandparents Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop-pop (Peter McRobbie). The children make the trip to meet their grandparents while mom gets some much needed time alone with her boyfriend on a cruise. They arrive and are greeted with a warm welcome by their grandparents who are so excited to be spending time with them. The great thing about this film is Rebecca an aspiring film maker is creating a documentary for us as we go. So we witness several Points of view in the filming and that adds to the mystery of the film as well. They slowly begin to witness strange behavior from their grandparents and most of the time brush it off as them getting older and may not be as sharp as they once were. One thing they find odd is they are advised to stay in their room after 9:30p.m. They quickly find out why when they witness Nana acting extremely strange in the middle of the night. Of course all that is brushed off by Pop-Pop as a condition Nana has. It does seem like everytime something odd occurs there are reasonable explanations for why they happen that is until eventually the odd occurances get more and more and the children start to believe they are in a lot of danger. This is classic M. Night Shyamalan at his best and redeeming himself from the not so great "After Earth" and getting back to his best like "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs" A great thriller for the whole family that will keep you on the edge of your seat. opens in theaters September 11th.
