Old ★★★½

I was concerned going into this, not because of M. Night‘s Shyamalan’s track record with movie audiences, but because the concept genuinely freaks me out. 

This M. Night Shyamalan’s 14th film, “Old” delivers on being a effectively creepy thriller. The diverse cast provides an effective ensemble and complement the movie with strong performances. The story kept me on edge for the most part. I have a few nitpicks but overall I would say this is a solid entertaining thriller.

In recent years M. Night Shyamalan has proven he is still able to flex his filmmaker skills. Comparing this film to his others I would place this somewhere right in the middle, not his absolute best film, but definitely not anywhere near his more criticized films. 

It’s a solid movie, worth checking out if your interested.
