Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan used to be called our "modern-day Hitchcock." The director garnered rave reviews for the Academy-Award nominated film "The Sixth Sense," and for the critically-acclaimed films "Unbreakable" and "Signs." But after those suspenseful thrillers, the quality of Shyamalan's films decreased. "The Village" received mixed reviews and everything that followed was panned. But Shyamalan finally has a surprise hit under his belt—"Split." So is this Shyamalan's comeback? 🎥
