The Visit

Thriller Comedy


 

Two young children visit their grandparents for the first time and realise something is very wrong.

The plot twist is no new thing to cinema, and when it's executed correctly, it can make a film feel refreshing and new. The twist in "The Visit" is incredibly clever, and breathes fresh air to a somewhat boring script after the half way mark. For a large portion of the film, it feels like everything is on repeat. If it weren't for the natural and very engaging performances from the two very young leads, it could be considered quite unentertaining. Come for the visit, stay for the surprise.
