Rotten Tomatoes score: 63%
After plummeting alongside M. Night Shyamalan’s filmography for more than a decade, the Tomatometer finally bottomed out with his Will Smith-led After Earth. The reviews could only improve. They did, somewhat, when The Visit his theaters this September, just barely nudging over the threshold of Fresh -- though, frankly, not fresh enough. The Visit is Shyamalan’s long-awaited comeback, not only his strongest effort in years but also the best found-footage horror movie since... well, maybe ever.
