The Village is a tidy and well ordered community. It is also oh so very safe, safe as long as no one ventures past the boundaries where danger lurks. But as with other M. Night Shyamalan films, things are not what they seem.
I don't want to give away the movie's twist in case you have not seen the Village, but I will say that the fear tactics of the village elders remind me of those who warn about the supposed monstrosities of theological covenants.
We will be reading and discussing chapter 4 on Tuesday, October 14th. I hope to see many of you then, but beware, there may be marks on the door and the bad color will be seen so do your very best not to SCREAM!
