Clark Collis from Entertainment Weekly, gave it an ok 75 score, saying: “This is the first Shyamalan movie in a long time that viewers may be tempted to re-visit just to see how he pulls off his magic trick.”

Sara Stewart at the New York Post, gave it a 75 grade, stating: “Like the film itself, it’s simple but well-executed enough.”

Manohla Dargis at The New York Times, gave it a 70 score, saying: “The director M. Night Shyamalan has a fine eye and a nice, natural way with actors, and he has a talent for gently rap-rap-rapping on your nerves.”

Brian Truitt over at USA Today, gave it a 63 score. He said: “The low-budget thriller deftly mixes horror-movie moments, pure strangeness and comedy like a family-friendly David Lynch effort as it takes audiences on one really oddball trip to grandma’s house.”

Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post, gave it a 63 score. He stated: “The cast of mostly unfamiliar actors also serves The Visit well. Shyamalan has a gift for eliciting strong performances, even when his material is lacking.”

Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it a 63 grade. He stated: “No spoilers, except to say that cheap thrills can still be a blast. Not enough to make up for Shyamalan’s awful “After Earth,” but it’s a start.”

Peter Hall from the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 grade, saying: “It’s the fun kind of crazy. And The Visit is undeniably, admirably intense when it needs to be.”

James Rocchi at TheWrap, gave it a 40 score, stating: “Shyamalan has had some difficulties as a director of late, and it’s understandable to hope that by placing him back in the realm of lower budgets and more manageable expectations he could impress us yet again; that turns out not to be the case this time.”
