On a relatively normal day there is a happening. People are killing themselves for no reason, at least not a reason we can comprehend.  The Happening marks a return of sorts for director M. Knight Shyamalan after the abysmal performance of his last film Lady In The Water, which I thought was a good film. On top of that Shyamalan also received some pretty scathing reviews for his film The Village which I was not a fan of. In any case two failed films back to back would suggest that the director has lost touch with his audience and as I finished watching his latest film, The Happening, I could only think that this film will confirm that notion to his critics.
