Loz, from the looks of it it's going to be agreat movie! Very creepy and scary with all types of complexovertones.

Here's the official website where you can view trailers and such to get an idea of what's going on:

Don't know if you're familiar with him or not, but M. Night Shyamalanis an excellent writer, director, and producer with credits such as"The Sixth Sense", "Signs", and "Unbreakable" in hisportfolio. All of his works are awesome in that theyseamlessly portray many, many complex levels under one theme.

Hope that you guys will be getting it soon! :D

Buck, I saw this a couple of times when I wasyounger and then when I got older. When I was younger itreally scared me. When I got older I found it hilarious ...:(... especially with the cheesy side effects.

It is, ironically, one of my favorites in the horror genre because of that cheesiness.

I could have just smacked that little girl for being the instrument through which the carrier bunny was let loose.

Trina, apparently a group ofQuakershave set up a colony in the woods way away from mainstreamcivilization. After they're established they find that sometype of undefined beasts (who are dangerous to them) are established inthe same area. They form an unspoken truce wherein they don'tgo into the beasts' section of the forest and the beasts don't comeover to theirs.

Well, you know there's always "troublemakers" in thecrowd. :? Some of the young boys in thevillage breach the boundary of the beasts' territory and they come overto the settlers' territory that night to attack.

That's the basic summary of the plot. Go here:http://thevillage.movies.go.com/toview trailers of the movie. Looks like it's going to be areally good one! :)

It looks like a good movie. I wont go out and see it but I'll watch it if it's ever on tv in a couple years.

For all you scaredy cats, it's PG-13 so it's obviosly not that scary.

I love his movies. They're always full ofsuspense. He has a way of creating a creepy atmosphere so the audienceis on edge from the beginning. In Signs we spend the majority of themovie terrified of aliens that we really only get a good look at twice.Let's not forget to mention The Sixth Sense. Whoa. That's still asweaty palm movie no matter how many times I see it. Yikes! I can'twait to see The Village. That's one of the few movies I want to see inthe theater. Some are just better viewed that way.:shock:

Sarah, he really is a superior writer and director. I love his work!

They had a "documentary" (part fiction, part truth) on the SciFiNetwork last week about him, and it was VERY interesting (http://www.scifi.com/mnight/main.html)!He has such a mystique about him and a real gift that doesn't get lostin the commercialism of filmmaking.

If I had to do graduate school over again he would be the subject of my thesis. I just love M. Night! :D


Did any of you see "Unbreakable"? It's one of the deepest andmost awesome movies that I've ever seen. I'm goingto buy the DVD so that I can watch it again, see the commentary, thedirector's cuts, the behind the scenes, etc.
