Trailer Released For ‘The Watchers’ From Shyamalan’s Daughter

The Master of Twists’ Daughter Steps on Stage

The trailer for the upcoming horror film The Watchers has been released. The film will be the directorial debut of M. Night Shyamalan’s daughter, Ishana. What a twist!

What Is “The Watchers” 

Warner Brothers has released a trailer for their upcoming horror film, The Watchers. The film follows a young artist who gets stranded in the Irish wilderness. Upon finding shelter, however, she now finds herself stalked by mysterious creatures alongside three strangers. The film will star Dakota Fanning, Georgina Campbell, Oliver Finnigan, and Olwen Fouéré. New Line Cinema and Shyamalan’s own Blinding Edge Pictures will produce the film. The Watchers will be released on June 7, 2024.

Who is Ishana Night Shyamalan? 

As stated above, Ishana Night Shyamalan is the daughter of veteran director M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan himself is a well-known, controversial director. After rising to fame with The Sixth Sense, he would direct several poorly received films such as The Happening, After Earth, Lady in the Water, and The Last Airbender. In recent years, though, he’s seen more success with films such as Glass and Knock at the Cabin. As for Ishana herself, her only credits thus far are writing for her father’s show Servant and a handful of production tasks, and because of this, she has everything to prove.

The Potential of Ishana Shyamalan

While her father’s reputation nowadays may be questionable, Ishana herself is a new name in the business, and she still has the chance to carve out her own identity within the world of cinema and maybe create her voice and style. As for the film’s cast, Fanning and Campbell have proven themselves to be skilled actresses capable of leading. Furthermore, there are examples of children of famous directors succeeding, such as Sofia Coppola with Priscilla and Brandon Cronenberg with Infinity Pool. Until then, she has intrigued fans, but they will have to wait and see if Ishana can give us a proper twist by surpassing expectations.
