The Happening's been screened for critics and the results are said to be horrific. But the question remains: is it horrific enough to be fun to go and jeer at, like Lady in the Water (a.k.a. That of Which We Do Not Speak), or just horrificly boring, like The Village (a.k.a. That Other One of Which We Do Not Speak)?
My theory is that plants, in an act of revenge for us destroying the environment, are releasing a gas that forces M. Night Shyamalan to make movies. A sequel, It Happened, will concentrate on the unfortunate moviegoers who go to see the original Happening. Afterwards they all leave the theater and methodically commit suicide in a variety of gruesome ways. Plus there'll be a full on frontal scene of Marky Mark, so studios can bill it as Shyamalan's first NC-17 picture.
