O que se diz lá fora acerca de THE HAPPENING:
«It is no doubt too thoughtful for the summer action season, but I appreciate the quietly realistic way Shyamalan finds to tell a story about the possible death of man.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«THE HAPPENING is a divertingly goofy thriller with an animistic bent, moments of shivery and twitchy suspense and a solid lead performance from Mark Wahlberg.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
«The movie demonstrates a smart movie geek's obsession with the rhythms and gory details of horror storytelling, undermined by a pompous insistence on spiritual lessons of the tritest kind.»
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
«The movie seems more like a '50s science fiction film of extreme paranoia or an episode of "The Twilight Zone" that even at a swiftly paced 90 minutes feels padded.»
Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter.
«You'll see plenty of dead people in M. Night Shyamalan's latest effort, but you may not notice. Nothing in THE HAPPENING is particularly lively.»
Alex Markerson, E!Online.
