Synopsis: Young Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) is haunted by a dark secret: he is visited by ghosts. Cole is frightened by visitations from those with unresolved problems who appear from the shadows. He is too afraid to tell anyone about his anguish, except child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis). As Dr. Crowe tries to uncover the truth about Cole's supernatural abilities, the consequences for client and therapist are a jolt that awakens them both to something unexplainable.
It feels like forever since I watched The Sixth Sense. I remember it always being one that stayed with me, given the errie and prelonged sense of 'alert' it would trigger, like opening a door, that you know you shouldn't open but do anyway, taken by curiosity, wanting to discover what lurks inside. It didn't disappoint. That same old feeling came flooding back, leaving a craving for more.... but that's just me (and other horror / thriller fans out there) ... I love the euphoric thrill of fear.
From a film stand point, the cinematography is beautifully done, the acting emotionally connected and well portrayed. The story line can be a little slow at points, but such is with life. There are moments which are as not fast moving as we'd like. After re-watching The Sixth Sense, the why, it has become a 'classic' is more obvious than ever. From a plot standpoint, it is beautifully captivating, with twists to leave you guessing. M. Night Shyamalan, has done a great job of seamlessly combining genres.
So if you are looking for something, haunting, dark and well portrayed from start to finish, The Sixth Sense will feed your desire.
