This video is a trailer for a spoof movie uncovering why M. Night Shyamalan’s career has gone so wrong in recent years. And it’s hilarious, mainly because it’s so accurate.
M. Night Shyamalan’s career started off so well. The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were well-regarded, Signs, The Village, and Lady in The Water were OK, and then things went a little wrong.
The Happening was a pile of old tripe. Seriously one of the worst films of all time, mainly because nothing actually happened. And then came The Last Airbender, which very few people liked, especially fans of the animated series it was based on.
This spoof movie trailer from College Humor is keenly observed, and the bald guy is truly freaky, especially at the end when he tells Shyamalan that his career’s “been dead the whole time.” Brilliant.
