Movie Review - 'The Visit'

Going to the cinema with the girls on the weekend has become one of my most favourite things to do and oddly enough watching horror films has also become one of my favourite things to do, I know? WEIRDOOOO!!
The other week I went to the cinema with my friends to go see my first ever horror in the cinema... 'The Visit' and I decided that since it's the weekend I'd give you the low down and my honest review on the film and advise you whether or not to waste money and go see this film.

Although this film is a horror I found parts hilarious and it's all down to the ridiculously talented Ed Oxenbould who plays Tyler and who's only fourteen years of age but my God is he hilarious. Based on him alone I'd recommend you going to see this film.

The story is based around two children Rebecca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) as they go to visit their grandparents whilst their mother goes on a cruise. The kids have neither met their grandparents so aspiring film maker Becca decides to document the visit as she tries to discover why her grandparents and mother don't talk anymore. Of course the grandparents live in an isolated farmhouse where there warned to never go near the basement, OR leave their room after 9:30. With the hunger getting to Rebecca one night she decides to venture downstairs for a cookie when the weirdness begins and the children notice some 'odd' behaviour amongst their grandparents (especially their grandmother). Rebecca is concerned for her grandmother's well being so asks her grandfather about it but is told she's just unwell which Rebecca accepts however Tyler.. nah that ship don't sink with him as he decides to take matters into his own hands and sets up a camera downstairs to see what their beloved grandmother is really up to.. and my God.
 It's from here on out the story gets interesting and very, very scary. An extremely unexpected plot twist kicks in at the end and the last ten/fifteen minutes will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.
 You can watch the trailer for yourself here: 

So as a recap?
Do I recommend you go and see it? - YES!!!
How many stars would I give it out of 5? - 4!!
Would I see it again? - To be honest, no. Once you see it once and discover the plot twist there really isn't any need to see it again, however I do recommend you go and see it, I promise you it's extremely weird, kinda scary and oh so good!! - Let me know if you do decide to go check it out.
