The Happening - Not the place to be

Mmmmmmm.Night Shamalamadingdong decided that the best way to make his films look great again is to make a shite one first. It almost worked except this is only marginally better than Lady in the Water. Trade mark visuals, sets, a good idea and genuinely tense until Marky Mark appears on screen or opens his mouth. Then you just want to laugh. At least his next film will be a stormer. Or the next one.......

Interesting that a director so inventive can become so formulaic. As you say the set was out of Signs, the old lady was classic Hitchcock confusion and the deadly plants were pure Triffid. How can it go so wrong?

I thought it was better than Lady in the water, but thats not hard now is it ?

I did however shit myself cycling through the park today, merrily wondering if it would be my last.
