The Village (2004)

()

Coming Out at 30 July 2004 in theaters

Drama, Mystery, Thriller

The Village is period horror film written, produced, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. It stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody, William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, and Brendan Gleeson. The film is about a village whose population lives in fear of creatures inhabiting the woods beyond it, referred to as “Those We Don’t Speak Of”. Like other films written and directed by Shyamalan from the same time period, The Village has a twist ending.

The film received mixed reviews, with many critics expressing disappointment with the twist ending. The film gave composer James Newton Howard his fourth Oscar nomination for Best Original Score.

Residents of the small, isolated, 19th-century Pennsylvania village of Covington live in fear of nameless humanoid creatures in the surrounding woods. They have constructed a large barrier of oil lanterns and watch towers that are constantly staffed. After the funeral of a child, the village elders deny Lucius Hunt’s request for permission to pass through the woods to get medical supplies from the city. Later, his mother Alice scolds him for wanting to visit the city, which the villagers describe as wicked. The Elders also appear to have secrets, keeping physical mementos hidden in black boxes, supposedly reminders of the evil and tragedy in the towns they left behind.

After Lucius makes an unsanctioned venture into the woods, the creatures leave warnings in the form of splashes of red paint on all the villagers’ doors.
