After back-to-back critical flops with The Last Airbender and After Earth, director M. Night Shyamalan has quietly returned to his roots. Shyamalan has reportedly made a deal with Universal Studios to distribute The Visit, a low-budget horror/thriller that he secretly shot earlier this year.
"The Visit focuses on a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents' remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip," says Deadline. "Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day."
The story adds that Shyamalan wrote, directed, and financed the project himself, even using his own home in Pennsylvania as a shooting location. The Visit will hit theaters in September 2015.
