Format: DVD
first, this dvd was a gift. i had seen it in stores, but i didnt really know what it was about. i didnt know of the controversy over it on the sci-fi channel. i thought it was a straight to dvd movie. then i watched it.
it was a very eerie and creepy documentary. it looked at the works of shyamalan and on his styles and interviews with him. then the documentary makers find out that night is connected to 'the other side', referring to the dead. they find a creepy kid whose obsessed with night and they use an ouiji board to ask spirits if any of the spirits have connections to night. the pointy thing goes to a 'yes' on the board. then they go onto some website on the internet and talk with other obsessed people on the web. after that scene, the rest of the documentary goes in the direction of finding out more of night's connection to the dead.
the whole documentary is very eerie and creepy. it hits you where it counts, and you feel very uncomfortable for the whole documentary. after viewing it, i then found that i was very uncomfortable and i looked over my shoulder for the rest of the night. then, after i had watched it, i wondered if it was even real, because i had watched interviews with night that seemed to counter the whole movie.
when i looked on the internet, i found that the whole thing was a sham and found out there was controversy or something over the documentary being a whole lie. i found myself laughing at this. but enough on that subject besides saying that the whole thing didnt take away from my movie experience.
back to the show, the whole thing was very moody and spooky. not enough to make you stay up at night (unless you're scared easily), but enough to make you look over your shoulder. personally, i liked it.

HASH(0xa139e6fc) out of 5 stars Entertaining, documentary or not Oct. 13 2005
By Amanda Chu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Yes it is very likely a promo for the upcoming Night's film at the time. It is nevertheless good entertainment. Scarier than all of Night's films. If Night had been the real director of the documentary, I would say it was the best work he had done as a horror film director. The sketched portrait of "Henry", Night's supposed ghost friend, was really disturbing and haunted me for a very long time. Again, it is good entertainment, if you don't get too hung up on whether it is fiction disguised as a documentary and that it was the means to get more publicity for Night.

HASH(0xa139e63c) out of 5 stars Don't even bother!! Dec 28 2004
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw this 'documentary' when it originally aired on Sci-Fi Channel as a special promo for the movie Village. It's not a documentary in any sense of the word, it's a 'mystery' that attempts to put a mystical spin on the life of filmmaker Shyamalan. What it is, is a lousy TV special that is overly long and is a bad Blair Witch-like ripoff.

There is very little screen time with Shyamalan, and what is there is mostly garbage. None of this is really about Shyamalan. It's completely fictional. If the people being interviewed in here are really Shyamalan's friends and not actors I would be surprised. Don't even bother with this DVD.

HASH(0xa13a3b70) out of 5 stars Duh. It's a mockumentary. Oct. 18 2006
By Isaac A. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
All you guys complaining about how bad this movie was... you gotta remember that the point of this film was to of course (1) Attract an audience (2) Entertain an audience (and 3) Enjoy. If M.N.S. really wanted his fans to know what he was all about, you'd see him on every talk show, movie critic, and ET show on TV. This film was awesome. It did it's job, left the audience on the edge of their seats. If you have to be so anal about documentaries, the go watch a documentary. This is a MOCKumentary. Not real. Not intended to fool anyone. Just meant to entertain.

HASH(0xa13a3b40) out of 5 stars M. Knight's stab at the scary mockumentary March 31 2005
By Kristopher G. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Fake, Fake, Fake. Everything I've read on this special harps on the fact that it is fake. NEWSFLASH!! Everything you've ever seen (in the way of drama) on TV or in the movies is fake!! I don't quite understand why in this instance the fact that it is fake suddenly becomes a flaw. Unless of course you were tricked into thinking it was real, scared and then became angry when you found out you'd been hoodwinked! Similar to all of McKnight's movies he treats something that is generally believed to be fake (ghosts, aliens, and comic book heroes) and gives it an altogether serious treatment as if it were real. In this case the supposed mystery surrounding McKnight's life takes center stage. For those of you who want to know more about McKnight's thinking process in movie making you might try commentary tracks on some of his movies. But if you are looking for a 'Blair Witch' style mocumentary BY M.Knight you will love this. It also presents a chance for fans to see a little more of Knight's acting ability then his movie cameos allowed. If you are at all a fan of M.Knight movies and are left still wanting more post-The Village, definitely at least give this one a rental. You will not be disappointed!!

HASH(0xa139e528) out of 5 stars Not what I thought Jan. 3 2006
By C. LAGARDE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I received this DVD thinking it was a true documentary. Unfortunately I didn't read the amazon reviews, or i would have known that this is a fictional work and not a documentary at all. If you want to know more about M. Night, DO NOT GET THIS. I thought this entire production was cheezy and very predictable. I felt i wasted my time watching this. If M. Night had a hand in creating this, it was only to put his face in it and receive royalties from sales. It sucks. Period.
