Exclusive Video Interview: M. Night Shyamalan Talks Dialing-In Maximum Terror in OLD

M. Night Shyamalan’s new nightmare Old arrives in theaters today, and horror fans are in for a treat! I was lucky enough to sit down with Shyamalan to discuss straddling the line between R-rated and PG-13 horror and the film’s twist ending! We even had time to look back (briefly) at The Happening (you’re welcome, Marcos Codas!).

This summer, Shyamalan unveils a chilling, mysterious new thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly … reducing their entire lives into a single day.

The film stars an impressive international cast including Golden Globe winner Gael García Bernal (Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Rufus Sewell (Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle), Ken Leung (Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Jupiter Ascending), Abbey Lee (HBO’s Lovecraft Country), Aaron Pierre (Syfy’s Krypton), Alex Wolff (Hereditary), Embeth Davidtz (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Eliza Scanlen (Little Women), Emun Elliott (Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens), Kathleen Chalfant (Showtime’s The Affair) and Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit).  

Old is a Blinding Edge Pictures production, directed and also produced by M. Night Shyamalan, from his screenplay based on the graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frederik Peeters. The film is also produced by Ashwin Rajan (Glass, AppleTV+’s Servant) and also Marc Bienstock (Glass, Split). The film’s executive producer is Steven Schneider.
