Spoiler Alert

A few years ago I happened to catch the end of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village on TV. Just the ending. I hadn’t seen the first hour-and-a-half but after seeing those final 10 minutes I was really glad I didn’t. It was bad. Really bad. Like, “I could’ve thought of that in 4th grade” bad.

It was then and there that I decided I would simply spoil myself on all of Shyamalan’s films instead of actually seeing them. I’m not sure why I should see them; The Sixth Sense was very good and Unbreakable was fine but it’s been downhill since then. I figured that I’d enjoy learning the twist and thinking about the movie that could be built up around such a premise than sitting through the schlock and getting to the twist.

And yes, I spoiled myself for The Happening. I’m still glad I did for if I actually saw it in the theater, I suspect I’d be angry.
