    Frightening/Intense Scenes

    A strange epidemic reaches the US causing the following stages to the human body: first, speech disablement. Second, the inability to move. And then, third, though not fully explained in any trailer or clip so far, the victims seem to have the urge to commit suicide, with scenes of falling bodies, stabbings, and hangings

    A woman slaps a young child's wrist when she reaches for a cookie.

    Explosive startles.

    I have seen The Happening; I would give it 2/4 stars; If you would like to kind of waste your time, see it; It wasn't that scary; It's about these plants that release some kind of poison or such that makes people ; What's happening is people due to the gas released by the plants.

    It is rated R for the violent images (people falling off builidings, commiting ) used in the film.

    I'm 15 and it didn't scare me ONE BIT. There are no scary faces in this film, unless you're afraid of infected humans.

  • I really disliked that movie. I sat through the entire movie wondering if anything more would happen, but the same thing happens to almost every character. I would have liked a more exciting ending and an ending that made more sense.

    Overall I would call it entertaining but unfulfilling.

    I actually thought the acting was pretty good. I liked the concept and I loved the cinematography. It really had me scared in some parts.

    But I left wanting more resolution than what it offered.

    yes, i would give it 4 stars and it wasnt that scary but i would say its suspensful. Its about an airborne allergen in the air that makes the people do crazy things ( i dont wanna spoil it for u) its rated R because of the gore, and i dont think it will scare u ,i think it will just make ur jaw drop.

    The Happening was ok, it started off good but the ending was pretty boring... They should have called this movie "When Good Plants Go Bad"

    the dumbest movie ever. two thumbsdown to Mr. M Night SH!Tmalan. don't waste your money.

    sixth sense was it for him...after that its been all downhill. the ony reason why i watched this movie was because it was mostly filmed in Philly where i am from. but overall...dumbest movie ever.

    leaves? trees? wind??? seriously. BOO!

    wanna know what REALLY happened?? I WASTED $10 dollars on this crap movie!

    Mad as a hatter

    Worst creation of M. Night Shyamalan

    Mark Wahlberg acts like George Clooney in "Michael Clayton"

    the only thing that's scary in this movie is Zooey Deschanel with her dilated blue eyes.

    Good idea that goes south pretty quick. You'll be falling asleep by the end.
