Thought-provoking thriller too intense for some.

Fresh: Gripping, creepy, and very well acted with a great breakout performance from Bryce Dallas Howard...

While I admired the plot twist ending, the real story has so many holes in it that its annoying. M Night Shymalan is becoming one of the biggest hacks in Hollywood, and he doesn't lose that title with this movie. Itwon't confuse people, but it will make people go like, what the hell am I watching, and why.

Arguably M. Night Shyamalan's most under-appreciated films. Now granted, after this movie he fell fast and has lost a lot of credibility. However, this is still a very good film. Bryce Dallas Howard is a revelation, it's always hard to trust first-time actors with a major film and put most of it on their shoulders - but she's simply phenomenal. The twist at the end is what pisses most people off. I don't get, I thought it was appropriate and not to far-fetched, as well as bravely original.
