M Night Shyamalan’s new horror looks like his best film in 20 år
The horror-thriller from the director of ‘The Sixth Sense’ stars Gael García Bernal, Vicky Krieps and Rufus Sewell

Siden utgivelsen av The Sixth Sense i 1999, M Night Shyamalan has carved out a reputation as Hollywood’s twistiest writer and director.

After the success of his Unbreakable trilogy, Shyamalan returns this July with his latest film Gammel, an adaptation of the graphic novel Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters.

Filmed in the Dominican Republic and starring Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle), Vicky Krieps (The Last Vermeer) og Rufus Sewell (The Man in the High Castle), Gammel follows a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they’re relaxing is causing them to age at a rapid pace.

The trailer isn’t giving away much more than that, only adding to the confusion with incomprehensible written messages and alarming deaths.

Earlier this year, Shyamalan told Entertainment Weekly that the source material came to his as a gift from his children. “It’s based on this graphic novel that I was given from my daughters," han sa. “I read it, and the premise was so powerful, of these people that went to this beach and their experience that happens on that day in the beach… I thought it was very frightening and emotional, and the ideas just started coming, and I tracked down the owner, and the person that wrote it. It was just a beautiful thing, and kind of touching, that it came from my daughters, this story about getting older very, very quick.”
