Geriatric Horror Returns with M. Night Shyamalan’s “SUNDOWNING”
National treasure Kathryn Hahn (STEP BROTHERS) is leading M. Night Shyamalan’s return to something more horror oriented in SUNDOWNING. The film, Shyamalan’s follow-up to last year’s AFTER EARTH, sees the director seemingly jump into the growing number of geriatric/elderly-based horror like the recent SXSW Midnighter LATE PHASES, and the upcoming AJ Bowen and Gene Jones-starring DEMENTIA.
In SUNDOWNING—the name of course referencing the psychological issue related to dementia that sees confusion and behavioral issues coinciding with the onset of evening hours—Hahn stars as a mother of two. Her children go off to visit their grandparents and as scant plot details say, “things go terribly wrong.”
Shyamalan is nearly done with production in a wintry Pennsylvania. [The Wrap]
