Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan assembles an all-star cast, including Joaquin Phoenix and Sigourney Weaver, Adrien Brody, William Hurt and Bryce Dallas Howard, to bring the thrilling tale of an isolated village confronting the astonishing truth that lies just outside its borders. At first glance, this village seems picture perfect, but this close-knit community lives with the frightening knowledge that creatures reside in the surrounding woods. The evil and foreboding force is so unnerving that none dare venture beyond the borders of the village and into the woods. But when curious, headstrong Lucious Hunt plans to step beyond the boundaries of the town and into the unknown, his bold move threatens to forever change the future of the village.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Village is appropriately creepy, but Shyamalan's signature twist ending disappoints.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Village is a 2004 M. Night Shyamalan movie in which an austere Pennsylvania hamlet sequestered from the rest of the world begins to experience a series of bizarre and violent events when a young man dares to try and venture beyond the confines of the hamlet. This is a very tense and scary thriller that may be too much for some tweens and young teens. There are scenes with nightmarish imagery, including animal corpses, and the demonic imagery of mysterious monsters in red. Some viewers may be concerned about the portrayal of a developmentally-delayed and possibly disturbed character, who is shown stabbing another character in the chest. There is talk of violent acts witnessed and experienced by the characters in the long ago past, including rape and murder, as well as talk of suicide.
