The Sixth Sense (1999)


Movie Review

Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan

Starring: Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, and Toni Collette

Child psychiatrist Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) has had some rough patients.  Vincent Grey (Donnie Wahlberg), one of his former patients, was a boy who had hallucinations.  When this boy becomes a young man, he makes a surprise visit to his former doctor and shoots him before committing suicide.  Nine-year old Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) is a boy who also has hallucinations.  He sees dead people.  Though Dr. Crowe has lost confidence in his own abilities after the incident with his former patient, he helps Cole to communicate with the ghosts he sees. 

The Sixth Sense might just be the only great film that M. Night Shyamalan has ever made.  If that’s the case, he should be pretty proud of himself for his work on this one.  The Sixth Sense is a gripping ghost story full of chills and thrills.  It’s an intelligent thriller that will scare the hell out of you.  It’s definitely a flick that belongs on the movie bucket list of anybody who loves a few thrills.
