Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs), is a lightning-paced, heart-pounding paranoid thriller about a family on the run from an inexplicable and unstoppable event that threatens not only humankind...but the most basic human instinct of them all: survival

Critic reviews are fantastic and we have many great critics but our community members ARE the horror audience and it is their reviews that really tell you if a film is worth watching.

The Happening Review by alex1176

M. Night Shymalan's low-grade 'B' effort thriller isn't up there with his thought-provoking creepfests "The Sixth Sense" or "Signs". It has more in common with a Stephen King novel and plays just like an exploitation fil...
The Happening (2008) Review by the5thdroog

M. Knight Shyamalan. What else do I really need to say? I’ve yet to hear anyone tell me that they weren’t a fan of “The Sixth Sense”, but every movie after that varies. This rings true for myself ...
The Happening (2008) Review by BlackTequilaKiss

I am writing this review as I watch the film. Despite heavy criticism of this movie from various sources I still think it is a movie that speaks to me. The beginning to me is absolutely awesome! People stuck in transit; ...

The Happening Review by JoeTerror

Boy, sometimes I really feel "out of the loop" with the rest of the world, movies people rave over I think suck, and vice versa. And guess who liked "The Happening"? Yup, me! Granted it's a far cry from "The Sixth Sense"...
The Happening Review by Poppascotch

It's been a few days since I've seen The Happening which allowed me some time for the film to sink in and to dissect it and study it for what it is.  Since then I've come to the conclusion that I was treated to a go...
The Happening Review by DemonicBrilliance

I really enjoyed this movie. It's really different which I personally look for and like in movies. I love horror movies where an event happens on a huge scale which this movie was certainly about. I really thought it was...
The Happening (2008) Review by EasterBunnyKiller

This movie is a classic case of when they could have done something with a movie and didn't. Shyamalan is making me sadder and sadder with each release, and this is the jewel in his crown. I usually like Mark Wahlberg, a...
The Happening Review by thedeadshallrule

M. Night Shamalyn has always been a favorite of mine, since I see alot of myself in the way he writes and directs,(except I have a passion for killing off the leads sorry). ANYhoo his movies seem to be compelling the fir...
The Happening Review by spleendingo

I will start out by saying I'm a huge fan of M. Night Shyamalan. Hopefully this does not cloud my judgment nor partiality during this review. I'm not sure what many people expected to see when they watched this movie. Th...

Well, in order to attempt to be fair, I decided to wait and sleep on my emotions for a day or two before writing this review.  Unfortunately, it's been approximately 72 hours since going to The Happening on opening ...
The Happening Review by Dracos Nightmare

I am so over M. Night Shamalyn! Just so you don’t have to sit though and hour and 24 minutes of the big M’s latest “Horror” movie to get to the big twist ending here it is… The big twist endin...
The Happening Review by floridapossum

First I would like to say I have always been an M. Night fan. I enjoyed Signs, and yes, even Lady in the Water, among others. However, having said that, this movie was a disaster.No problem with the casting, Mark Wahlb...

The Happening. Review by PaddedRoom
