The Visit was released in 2015, but following the release of M. Night Shyamalan's new movie, Knock at the Cabin, fans want to revisit one of his best (and scariest) movies of all time.

The Visit was released eight years ago and shook moviegoers to their very core. The film starred Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, and Kathryn Hahn and took the style of a found-footage horror film.

The Visit plot

The Visit begins with two children on the train on their way to visit their grandparents. Their mother has had a pretty rough relationship with them in the past but decides to let her children go alone visit them for a five day trip while she goes on a cruise with her boyfriend. 

When they arrive at the home and start spending time with their grandparents, things get a little bit weird. They aren't allowed into certain rooms, and at night there are strange noises that the children can hear in the isolated farmhouse where their grandparents live. Their grandparents then start behaving peculiarly and the children start to get the feeling that something is not quite right...
