Long Story Short:
After a tragic encounter with one of his former patients, acclaimed psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe tries to get back on track and takes on a new patient: a little boy who claims to see dead people.
Director M. Night Shyamalan has many great visions, but unfortunately The Sixth Sense is the only good transformation, well, maybe besides The Last Airbender (2010), which was pretty borderline, too. It starts with a bang and ends with one. The atmosphere is dark and unpleasant, because you never know when the boy gets infested by another dead soul that can’t seem to find peace. And do you remember Mischa Barton as one of them? – Probably one of her best and convincing roles ever. The acting performances are awesome, Bruce Willis, the very distant psychiatrist, who tries to get a hold of his life, Haley Joel Osment, the weird kid, who has horrible visions, and his helpless mother, played by the wonderful and talented Toni Collette, who should be in way more movies if you ask me. All in all The Sixth Sense has a high creep factor and is a must- see for long nights.
