M. Night Shyamalan’s career of producing good movies has been an unfortunate pattern of hits and misses.
In 1999, Shyamalan hit the blockbuster payload when The Sixth Sense gave the universe the ultimate freaky line that would stand the test of time.
“I see dead people.”
Shymalan’s ultimately created a shock and awe template for his films that left audience members with a twist, with sprinkles of Alfred Hitchcock seen throughout.
But following the horrible, white washed flop of Shyamalan’s 2010 film The Last Airbender the director began what we could easily call a “creative freefall into hell”.
