"The #1 Thriller of All Time" comes to DVD as part of Hollywood Pictures' Collector's Edition series. Fans of M. Night Shyamalan's ingenious supernatural story will revel in the 1.85:1 widescreen (enhanced for 16 x 9 televisions) format and 5.1 Surround Sound which fully capture the intricate details of the film and tangible paranormal presence. What makes this DVD especially enjoyable, however, is the multitude of behind-the-scenes features, many of which are narrated by Shyamalan and other key crew members. Included are a French-language track; a "Storyboard to Film Comparison" of the anniversary dinner scene; cast and crew interviews; a fascinating "Music and Sound Design" presentation that illustrates how the incredibly creepy background track was created; and "Reaching the Audience," an explanation of how word of mouth made this movie the cultural phenomenon it became. Also included are "Rules and Clues," a guide to the hints threaded throughout the movie before its explosive, surprise ending; four deleted scenes, one of which is an extended finale; and an interview with Shyamalan in which he talks about his background and how it affected his filmmaking. Theatrical and TV trailers as well as cast and crew biographies round things out. Finally, viewers should click on the beribboned box for a real treat -- Shyamalan's first horror film, "Nightmare on Old Gulf," which was written, produced, directed, and starred in by the film phenom when he was 11 years old.

This is a movie that you have to watch twice. The first time that you see it, you wonder what is going on until the end of it. Once you see the ending then the whole movie becomes clear and you will think it is a good movie. I love psychological thrillers. So give it a chance. It is really worth watching---twice!

I really liked this movie. Aside from the Star Wars Saga, it may well be my favorite. Because it's from M. Night Shyamalan, there is a twist. It's very amusing to sit down and watch the movie with your family and try to guess what it is with them. I also recommend rewatching it to catch all the clues that you missed. I really enjoyed the acting of the main characters; they were very well done and well rounded. There was also some humor in it, so the themes of the movie weren't all dark.

It was great. Just great. Haley Joel Osment was perfect. Bruce Willis was wonderful. I just loved it. It still makes you jump the second time around. It's probably the best horror type movie I've seen, but it's not gory blood and guts it has meaning and suspense. I did not see the ending coming. During the last scene, I guessed about five times before I figured it out. It's a must-see.

Honestly, this is a phenomenal creation, and young Osment acted flawlessly. Anyone who didn't appreciate this movie does not care for psychological thrillers or is just criticizing for the sake of doing so. The theme of "fear of uncertainty" is highly developed in this film and is of paramount importance to the psychological aspect of this movie.

I FINALLY saw this movie and thought this was an awesome movie! You will never guess how it turns out, and don't let anyone tell you. Let it be a surprise. See it, but I would watch it during the day if I were you.

Definitely one of the best movies ever! My mom had my brother and I watch the movie and going into it I thought it was going to be a dumb movie cuz I she made me watch The Village not too long before and I was disappointed with that. But this movie exceeded all of my expectations. Right from the beginning, you're pulled straight into the incredible plot, and it's made even better by Haley's flawless acting. Night is the best time to watch this movie!

I just saw this movie a couple of days ago and I loved it! I can't get it off my mind!

After watching this I expected to see more of the dead ghosts that the disturbed little boy could see. I got scared and couldn't sleep afraid that something might pop out of the closet or something like the Boogeyman (which is coming to theaters with Barry Watson who plays Matt on the show 7th Heaven of the WB channel). M. Night is a talented director and can scare us easily.

This movie is one of the most chilling movies I've ever seen. I really loved it. It wasn't the most scariest movies I've ever seen, but I liked it.

Well, ok I love all of M. Night's other movies, but this was the latest that I saw. It was only ok. It was relitivly scary, whith good actors, but the story was just....weird. I'm not sure how to describe it, really. The Sixth Sense was really different. I would reccomend it to any M. Night fans, but to everyone else, I'd say, rent it, watch it once, then forget about it.

The Sixth Sense is no ordinary thriller. That's the first thing that crossed my mind after viewing this movie. I am so tired of seeing ridiculous horror films with nothing but mindless blood and guts. This movie is not only the most eerie and terrifying I have ever seen, but it is also brilliant and deeply moving. The director makes everything seem so believable, I had trouble sleeping for weeks after I saw this. For those who enjoy a good thriller, or just enjoy a good movie, I highly recommend this movie!

I stumbled upon this movie when I was watching a baseball game--I wanted something to watch in between innings...this is the greatest movie ever! You never knew what is going to happen and the ending caught me by surprise! Anyone who loves suspense, freaky, and scary movies...this one is for you!

I found this movie very enjoyable. The actors all did a great job. And the story was very good. It is best to not know the ending when going to watch this film (So I will not spoil it). Watch it and ask no one about it, you will be pleased. How else do you review a movie without giving away the surprises. One quick note is that I would not classify this as a horror film. more like a suspense. If you are looking to be scared out of your seats....this movies is not for you.

This is without a doubt the scariest movie I have seen since the first time I watched Nightmare on Elm Street. The thing I liked most about this movie is that it isn't the average horror movie that you would get in this day in age. They did not rely on spooky monsters or crazy special effects like many of the other films of this genre usually do. This seems to be a simple story about a little boy, portrayed by a wonderful child star, who is struggling to deal with seeing dead people. A psychiatrist, brillantly played by Bruce Willis, struggles to help the little boy who reminds him of one that he was not able to help a few years earlier. This is a great movie, with a surprise twist that I am sure everyone has heard about. The things the boy goes through and the connection that the two stars make together make this movie more of a drama rather than a horror film. I strongly recommend this movie.

This is a cleverly written tale with the least expected plot twists and the best ending I've ever seen. It's one of those rare movies that you can see over and over again and still see something new each time. Don't make the mistake of only watching this film once. There's too much of it that you'll miss without even realizing it.

i first saw this movie when i was seven, so i didn't like it very much, and didn't make sence, but i finally watched it again when i was 10 and that time it totally made sence, and i loved the girl who was killed by her mother that was a weird one...or the hung people at the was awesome i'd rate it higher, but it only goes to five.

The is certainly the best movie I have ever seen. I dont think I will find a movie that will match this one. This movie made me jump, laugh, and shiver in my seat. It made me feel the exact emotions that the little boy was feeling in the movie. I think the movie was done very well. I could probably watch the movie ten times in a row and still enjoy it. I would recomend this movie to just about any audience, but just as a warning, it will give you the creeps. Overall, I gave this movie five stars.

This movie was ok. Many people absolutely loved it but not me because I figured out the ending in the beginning. I'm not sure if it's only me but I figure out almost every movie i watch without trying. Another movie i watched and figured out recently was "The Lakehouse".

I've Nerves of Steel. It was scary, but I luckily survived from all the scares. I loved this movie! Ever since I watched the film at my friends house, they were always thinking about living dead people behind their shower curtains! THE SIXTH SENSE recommended to everyone! Trust me, once you watch it, you have to be addicted to it. Wonderful!

the sixth sense is one of my favorites. the first time i saw it is when i was about 10 yrs. old. boy, does this movie scare the heck out of you! it is both disturbing and emotional at the same time. the ending of this movie really turned me off. i could not believe Mr. Dr. Malcolm Crowe was DEAD the whole time! well, i recommend this DVD to anyone who lost a loved one, and is hurting. because, this movie will comfort you to let you know that your loved one is watching over you, and that you're not alone, and that you will get through this.
