The Visit shows us it’s scary getting old. Because when you get old there is a chance of being completely off your rocker.
But the movie starts out innocent enough with two kids who want to meet their grandparents for the first time. The kids mom Kathryn Hahn says, “I haven’t seen or talked to them in fifteen years, but I think it’s safe to blindly send you there for a week. Just shoot them an email, and you guys can go to their creepy farmhouse in Pennsylvania. And I’ll try to enjoy myself on a cruise with my boyfriend.”
So the kids get picked up by the grandparents and instantly they notice something’s off. Pop Pop likes to collect his dirty diapers in shed and Nana likes to scratch the walls naked. The kids tell their mom but Hahn is like, “Kids, they’re just old. And you know, all this talking is taking me away from getting another drink. Suck it up and enjoy yourself.”
But things keep on getting weird to the point that Nana comes to the kids bedroom door at night with a knife. Then the kids call their mom and say, “Yeah, come here before we end up dead.” And Hahn goes, “OMG. Those aren’t your grandparents. You’ve just experienced an M. Night Shama-lama-ding-dong twist.”
But that’s when the crazy hits the fan. The little boy Ed Oxenbould gets a Pop Pop dirty diaper to his face. Then his sister finds out their actual grandparents were murdered by these two crazies. Pretty much making this the worse Airbnb ever.
The Straight Dope: M. Night Shyamalan finally redeems himself by letting us know we don’t need to be afraid of spending fifteen dollars for one of his movies.
