2 mins read

The Sixth Sense is a 1999 thriller-horror movie starring Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment. It is written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Plot

Malcom Crowe is a child psychologist who, shortly after a traumatic encounter with a disgruntled ex-patient, takes on a new client. His new client, Cole Sear, is a young boy who strangely enough has similar issues to those of Crowe’s ex-patient – more specifically, the kid “sees dead people”. In his effort to help Cole, Dr. Crowe finds himself confronted with a situation that is nothing short of mystifying.

Movie Reviews

“For Mr. Shyamalan, ‘The Sixth Sense’ is a slight improvement over last year’s ‘Wide Awake.’ But that isn’t saying much.”
