The REAL Dark Universe



M. Night Shyamalan's ups and downs have been epic.
With "The Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable," and "Signs," he was prematurely crowned 'The Next Spielberg. After "The Happening" and "The Last Airbender," he was brought back to earth. It seemed with his ego he wouldn't be able to come back from films like "After Earth." But he smartly regrouped and scaled down.
"The Visit" was a great step forward. Then "Split" came. Headed by a BRILLIANT performance from the magnificent James McAvoy, the film was unsettling and a return to form for Shyamalan. What happened at the end credit scene made fans excited again. For this was the beginning of a shared universe.

I was one of the handful of people that was rooting for Universal's 'Dark Universe.' I loved the old Universal Monsters characters and wanted to see a shared universe with my favorites (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, etc.), but the execution of the disappointing "The Mummy" put those plans to rest. It was less of a 'Dark Universe' and more of a standard action film with connections not earned. Putting the cart before the horse.

With M. Night's shared universe, the seeds have been planted way back in 2000 with "Unbreakable." And with cinematic universes being a big thing these days, it's great so see one that's original, and with the roots already firmly planted. Here's to the REAL Dark Universe...
