THE SIXTH SENSE (1999) 7TWO, 9.30PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Di­rec­tor M. Night Shya­malan be­came pretty much a house­hold name be­cause of this knock­out. Young­ster Ha­ley Joel Os­ment suf­fers in be­wil­dered si­lence at his abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with the re­cently de­ceased, un­til child psy­chol­o­gist Bruce Wil­lis en­ters his life with the of­fer to help him deal with it. The act­ing is strong but sub­dued, and ex­tra marks to Toni Col­lette as Os­ment’s dis­traught sin­gle mother. One of the most re­ward­ing sus­pense films, and one that raised a wilt­ing genre from the dead with a twist that has since in­spired dozens of copy­cats. ★★★★
