M. Night Shyamalan has been scaring us. Think The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village. Now, add The Happening. It stars Mark Wahlberg, about a family on the run to escape a natural calamity that threatens the entire humanity.
I have been reading from blogs that the story is about a certain plant that emits a poisonous smell that makes the human who smells it suicidal. If you happen to see the trailer, there were people jumping off buildings. This is Shyamalan’s way of telling us the chilling effect of global warming–plant mutation which proves catastrophic to humans.
The movie will be shown on June 13th. A Friday the 13th. Rated R in the US. Creepy.
