'The Village'
(Joaquin Phoenix, Bryce Dallas Howard, William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver / PG-13 / 91 mins / Touchstone Pictures)

Overview: The Pennsylvania-set story, which takes place in 1897, focuses on a community surrounded by woods filled with strange, unseen creatures. Joaquin Phoenix plays a man who dares challenge the creatures when they begin threatening the townsfolk.

Verdict: A sometimes engrossing shocker with a surprise ending that isn't especially shocking or surprising, M. Night's latest adventure 'The Village' turns a familiar fairy tale into an eerie scary tale. Though it's not as contrived as 2000's 'Unbreakable', 'The Village' is gorgeously made and amazingly atmospheric, but the sprawling cast and skill can't make up for a certain thinness in the plot. A supernatural thriller for adults this undeniably talented writer-director has been repeating himself with steadily decreasing potency ever since the wonderful 'The Sixth Sense', and his latest excursion does nothing to buck the trend.
