The Happening 2008 (R)

Actually the problem is no one can figure out what IS happening. Wahlberg is a high school science teacher who's worried about an environmental disaster. And he's right. Soon he and his family are on the run, trying to find a safe haven from a crisis that threatens humanity. Did the government accidentally release a biological weapon that got out of control and is decimating the population or is Mother Nature taking revenge? Let's hope that M. Night has his scary movie mojo back after 2006's disappointing “The Lady in the Water.” Not yet reviewed. ?m/C Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, John Leguizamo, Spencer Breslin, Betty Buckley, Joel de la Fuente, Frank Collison, Ashlyn Sanchez; D: M. Night Shyamalan; W: M. Night Shyamalan; C: Tak Fujimoto; M: James Newton Howard.
