Shyamalan is reaching into his bag of tricks.
M. Night Shyamalan’s resurgence in recent years has been a lot of fun. Now he’s back to his thriller origins, working on a very Hitchcockian premise. Old is a thriller about a family on a tropical vacation who discovers that the lonely beach somehow ages them quickly and reduces their entire life to a single day.
That sounds like the perfect claustrophobic yet somehow outdoor thriller that pursues an incredibly high concept and gives us the tightest and scariest experience imaginable.
Shyamalan tweeted his new trailer this morning.
What will you discover in paradise? ⏳ Check out the trailer for my new film OLD.

While there aren’t any specific details about what happens in the movie, this is a fucking trailer. It’s really exciting and shows a new kind of horror that can happen in ideal surroundings in the brightest daylight. Shyamalan has always been good at tapping into the subconscious horror surrounding death, so I think it will scare some people to see your life develop quickly.
