It's a low-budget venture called 'The Visit,' and of course it has evil grandparents.

Did you feel burned by After Earth, The Lady in the Water, The Happening, and The Last Airbender*?Well, put on your protective suit and prepare to get sprayed with the torch of disappointment again, because M. Night has a new film coming out! It's called The Visit, a title which could have also been used for 75% of the other movies he's made. Like:
- The Sixth Sense = The Visit (From a Dead Guy)
- Signs = The Visit (From Aliens)
- The Lady in the Water = The Visit (From a Lady in the Water)
All this said, the trailer for The Visit makes it look like it has potential. The film isn't big or flashy — it's a horror mystery centered around kids visiting their grandparents' house. Hopefully the small scope of the film means that M. Night focused on having a tight and engaging story.
* I was actually an extra in The Last Airbender. You'll see me nowhere in the film. Oh, I made it into the final cut, I'm just assuming that you have the good sense to never watch it.
