You leave slightly asquirm. You know it will linger. It becomes a clammy, chilly movie building toward a revelation that you cannot predict. As I say: I cannot tell you. You'd hate me if I did. I can only say, don't look now, but look sometime.

So transparent is Osment as an actor, and so rare, that the pain on his face stabs you in the heart.

Osment's pinched, old-young face suggests an ancient's insight without an ancient's defenses -- a sensitivity so exquisitely morbid that you worry more for his emotional than physical well-being.

Willis turns in a measured and understated performance.

A delicate, emotionally attentive, but very scary ghost story.

I was not only surprised by the film's final twist, I wasn't even looking for one. I just thought I was watching a bad movie. The end doesn't quite redeem it, but it makes you think about what you've seen. That's a saving grace of some sort.

Shyamalan's script is a clever construct, but also contains a great deal of sensitivity to the plight of the "different" child.

Like Kieslowski and others, Shyamalan knows that what makes for lousy metaphysics can make for powerful metaphor, and in the end he creates a deeply, surprisingly affecting film out of a little bit of smoke and brimstone.

M. Night Shyamalan neutralizes Willis's star presence with impressive plotting that's a fine excuse for the powerful atmosphere.

An effectively understated and moodily engrossing ghost film with a surprisingly satisfying jolt at the end.

A poignant study of the searing pain caused by loss, this all-too-human horror film provokes tears as well as fears.

Billed as a 'chilling, psychological thriller,' this movie is actually none of those things.
1/1/2000 by Michael Atkinson
Too often the film gets lost in overlit opulence and the soundtrack going 'boo.'

A terrific last-minute story twist goes a fair way toward redeeming The Sixth Sense.
1/1/2000 by Steven Rosen
Chilling and new!

The Sixth Sense is the movie that really deserves to be called The Haunting.
1/1/2000 by Tom Long
Sixth Sense is scary -- and smart!
1/1/2000 by Tom Keogh
An unusually intelligent thriller!
1/1/2000 by Peter Brunette
Of the big studio films released this summer, it's hands-down the best!

The Sixth Sense is a ghost story and a psychological thriller. But there's something finer to it than that.
