One of director M. Night Shyamalan’s best traits is his ability to showcase young actors: in this case Ed Oxenbould, who adds his comic hip-hop culture vibe (and is a clear audience fave). He and his sister spend a few days at the home of the grandparents they’ve never met. Turns out they’re a peculiar old couple that are supposed to add mystery and chills. This is shot in a “found footage” style, but with more narrative cohesion, generally attractive cinematography and obviously pro sound. There’s plenty of ominous threat, but few payoff scares. A generally creepy vibe, but nothing special. The kid’s closing rap is the movie’s most entertaining moment.
