JOE meets king of movie twists M. Night Shyamalan to give him a Twister ice pop and talk about his new film, The Visit
I see dead-on people.
Ahead of the release of The Visit, we caught up with the film's director and writer, M. Night Shyamalan, the man behind The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs and Mark Wahlberg's greatest comedy-that's-not-really-supposed-to-be-a-comedy, The Happening.
Shyamalan's more recent films may not have been well-received as his earlier work (goddamn hipster critics), but The Visit is most definitely a return to form for the director who film fans know as "that guy who loves putting a big twist in his movies."
The Visit tells the tale of two young teenagers, Becca and Tyler, who go to visit to their grandparents in the country for a week, but they soon begin to suspect that something's not quite right with their supposedly-loving Nana and Pop Pop.
Wouldn't you be wary if the house rules looked a little something like this...
Thankfully though, Night – as his friends and now JOE call him (that's right, we think we're his friend) is incredibly friendly and nowhere near as creepy as his new film, which is a relief because resident scaredypants Eoghan Doherty didn't bring his mammy along with him to hold his hand during the interview.
And keep an eye out for a twist of our own towards the end of the clip.
It's really, really subtle* and involves a Twister ice pop because the words "twist" and" Twister" are pretty much almost the same.
Here's the official trailer to get you in the mood ahead of the film's release in Ireland:

*Not subtle at all.
