Old ★★

Another cool premise with overall disappointing execution. I’ve missed the last few M. Night Shyamalan films, but now I’m thinking that may not be a big loss. 

Instead of a one joke comedy this is a one note thriller/horror that contains little variation in story and often feels like a series of vignettes that can be tedious to sit through, and I was frequently checking the run time. Even the location became ordinary, and that’s tough to do with a beach setting. 

The acting consists mostly of cycles of hysterics and the film lacks meaningful connections between the characters, or even story progression. I expected better effects too but that was surprisingly sparse given the body horror like premise. Ok I guess as a curiosity but ultimately pretty empty
