The Visit

Audio problem: When Tyler goes out to the unheated shed and finds the dirty diapers, you hear flies buzzing. This movie is in the middle of winter with snow on the ground. (00:24:20)


Plot hole: When they left the camera out overnight to film Nana it would have had to be recording all night. A DSLR will not do this and does not do motion detection either.

Trivia: M. Night Shyamalan personally financed the film so that he could have complete creative control over the final product. He wanted to make a low-budget, back-to-basics movie, as he had just finished working on a string of high-budget critical and commercial failures (including "After Earth" and "The Last Airbender") where he had little creative control due to the budgets and studio-mandates. It paid off, as this film, his next film "Split" and his television series "Wayward Pines" were generally considered a "return to form" for Shyamalan by critics.

Trivia: While the film was always meant to be something of a horror-comedy, director M. Night Shyamalan supervised three versions of the film during editing- one played mostly for horror with little comedy, one played mostly for comedy with the horror downplayed, and one that tried to balance both tones equally. The version that balanced horror and comedy equally is the final version released in theaters.

Grandma: Yahtzee.

Daughter: Mom, there's something wrong with nana and papa.
Mom: They're just OLD.

Mom: Those aren't your grandparents.
