M. Night Shyamalan is one of the most complex filmmakers of our time because there’s no telling if his next film will be a stroke of genius or the worst film that we will ever have the misfortune to see. Shyamalan broke into the industry with his brilliant 1999 film The Sixth Sense starring Bruce Willis in the lead role. After that, his talents were compared to the likes of Steven Spielberg. But that didn’t last long as his habit to end every film with a twist ending quickly became a plague to his brilliant legacy and while many of his films were quite lackluster in their execution and storytelling but there were also some films that actually surprised the audiences. So, if you also like Shyamalan’s filmography here are the 7 best Shyamalan movies you should watch.
