The Sixth Sense is an American film about a boy who can see dead people who don’t know that they’re dead, and a psychologist is called in to try and help him with his unusual ability.

This film had a fascinating story. I really enjoyed the whole thing, and all of the actors were very convincing in portraying their roles. Although it may seem as if not much happens in this film on the face of things, it manages to mess with your mind enough for you to be quite afraid of the whole thing.

That was definitely something that I did not expect from this film: jump scares. I thought that it was just a psychological horror, but as well as that, there are a few scary appearances by some dead people, so when I first saw them, they really gave me a fright, but it’s good to be scared once in a while.

The young boy playing the main character, Cole, was very good in his role, and he delivered THE line: “I see dead people.” fantastically well, which was a great delight to me.

The story was also very interesting, and very strange too, and at the end, there was a great twist that I definitely did not see coming, so because of that, and the fact that it was a just a very good film, I’ll give it an 8.1.
