I love a good M. Night Shyamalan film. The Sixth Sense, The Village and Signs, the man knows how to put a thoughtful spin on horror. I love how he writes kids and parents. The kids are serious and intense while the parents are vulnerable yet understanding. For an alien invasion movie, Signs is actually really thought provoking and pretty creepy.
Scare factor: I would make sure the lights are on before walking through the house. The first time you see the alien at the kids birthday party- creeps me out every time.
Treat: crop circle corn on the cob
Rub freshly shucked corn in olive oil and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Grill on high heat until tender and slightly charred.
