The Sixth Sense

PLOT:

In this chilling psychological thriller, eight-year-old Cole Sear is haunted by a dark secret: He is visited by ghosts. A helpless and reluctant channel, Cole is terrified by threatening visitations from those with unresolved problems who appear from the shadows. Confused by his paranormal powers, Cole is too young to understand his purpose and too terrified to tell anyone about his torment, except child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe. As Dr. Crowe tries to uncover the ominous truth about Cole’s supernatural abilities, the consequence for client and therapist is a jolt that awakens them both to something harrowing — and unexplainable.

What people are saying:

“M. Night Shayamalan’s The Sixth Sense is a twisty ghost story with all the style of a classical Hollywood picture, but all the chills of a modern horror flick” 3 1/2 stars

“M Night Shyamalan has fashioned a modern classic here, a chilly, intelligent, emotional ghost story that relies not on the obligatory gore and knifeplay for its many shocks but on glimpses of an afterlife that’s anything but angels and harps.” 5 stars

“Everyone raves about the twist ending in this movie and how it is so unpredictable. For me it was the exact opposite, the ending was exactly how I predicted it (Like all Shyamalan films). This didn’t detract from the story in any way, in fact I think it added to it. There are subtle yet obvious clues throughout which cause me to be surprised at all the people that couldn’t see the ending coming. All that aside, this is a fantastic movie and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers with “twist” endings.” 5 stars

“Refreshing to see a 2-HR movie for a change without 30 minutes of filler. Haley Joel Osmet was very good. Twist at end surprised me, which earns it points. See too many movies to be surprised very often. This was good, but not Best Picture fodder. It was not better than The Talented Mr. Riley. Guess it was the box office talking. Also not better than The Hurricane.”

“With fantastically scary moments and an amazingly well done double-twist ending, it’s hard to top the horror of Sixth Sense… regardless of your feeling for M. Night Shyamalan. Though many dislike his movies, this one is masterfully plotted, suspenseful and emotionally powerful. Perhaps most impressive about this 1990s horror classic is it’s thought provoking take on the afterlife, a realistic depth not typically seen in the genre. Well acted and intellectually scary, this is one horror film most will love.” 4 stars
