Critic Reviews of "The Village"New YorkerJuly 22, 2006
Dangerously dour.New York Magazine/VultureAugust 08, 2004
For those who just want a good scare, rest assured the best (and worst) of it comes across as Wait Until Dark meets The Blair Witch Project.Salon.comAugust 07, 2004
Shyamalan, far from being a master of suspense, hasn't yet figured out that the shadowy things you glimpse out of the corner of your eye are always scarier than those you're allowed to gaze upon directly.New York ObserverAugust 05, 2004
Another mediocre lunacy from the overrated M. Night Shyamalan.Village VoiceAugust 03, 2004
So meaningless and distanced in its details that it hardly stands a chance of wooing even the most willing fellow traveler.Ebert & RoeperAugust 02, 2004
The Village doesn't pack quite the punch of The Sixth Sense, but it's equal to Shyamalan's last two films.Fat Guys at the MoviesJanuary 17, 2016
different than anything else that's playing at the momentCommon Sense MediaDecember 29, 2010
Thought-provoking thriller too intense for some.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Gripping, creepy, and very well acted with a great breakout performance from Bryce Dallas Howard...Urban CinefileOctober 18, 2008
M. Night Shyamalan keeps the story vague enough to work up to his plot twist, and while I won't reveal it here, I will say that I don't think the payoff is worth it.Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 07, 2008
Shyamalan remains ever the master of mood and of unseen, inchoate menace; he can give depth and gravity to scenes that in other hands would be either boring or ridiculous.
