Aroview: A further investigation in atmospherics from the maker of SIGNS and THE SIXTH SENSE, this time sent in the foreboding microcosm of an 18th century New England village.
Threatened by an invasion of demonic forest-dwellers in red robes - normally kept at bay by a perimeter of burning torches - the inner conflicts of the townsfolk reach crisis point. Containing a surprise twist that is perhaps the least 'surprising' of M. Night Shyamalan's concoctions, this emerges as an unduly thin drama, saved for some viewers by the strong performances (especially newcomer Howard) and the precisely crafted visuals.

2 stars (Good Try) A 19th-century village live in fear of the terrible creatures that inhabit a surrounding forbidden forest that no-one dares to enter. Not that difficult to guess the rest. Nicely shot film, but lacking in depth and too predictable.~GenXGirl
