I’m feeling a bit chilly. No, the weather’s still hot & humid. But I feel the need for chills. So I’m giving away passes for the Baltimore screening of The Visit! Synopsis? Why certainly:
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable) and producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge and Insidious series) welcome you to Universal Pictures’ THE VISIT. Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.
Shyamalan produces THE VISIT through his Blinding Edge Pictures, while Blum produces through his Blumhouse Productions alongside Mark Bienstock (Quarantine 2: Terminal). Steven Schneider (Insidious) and Ashwin Rajan (Devil) executive produce the thriller. http://www.stayinyourroom.com
Y’all know I’ve taken M. Night to task before. But it’s also true that I love me some Devil and The Village. (Not to mention Unbreakable, which is a must-see for any superhero film fan, or lover of a fantastic hero’s journey story.) So I’ll be walking into this film with a 50/50 viewpoint. Okay, maybe 60/40, as advanced buzz from folks who have already seen the film have been positive. Yay? YAY!
Okay, this time the giveaway is in PDF form. So you know what that means…What: ADMIT TWO passes for the Baltimore area screening of The Visit! (NOTE: these passes are PDF, so you’ll need to print ’em)
Where: Cinemark Egyptian
When: September 8th, 2015
How: This time, send me an email (email@example.com) with the subject title “PLEASE DON’T DISAPPOINT US, M. NIGHT!” and answer me this in the body of your email:
What’s the name of the TV show whose opening I shamelessly rip-of in the first paragraph of my review for Devil?
I’ll pick 30 entries — that answer my question correctly — at random. WINNERS WILL BE CHOSEN TUESDAY MORNING AT 10AM.
REMEMBER: seating for screenings is first come, first served and not guaranteed. So get there early to make sure you get a seat.
