The Happening teaser trailer online

TheHappening.jpgI really didn't expect to see a teaser trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening so soon, but one has arrived and you can see it right here.

The trailer shows the beginnings of the terrible day when people begin killing themselves and each other for apparently no reason, and it's not just isolated as the scenes at the building site show.

What I find particularly scary about it is the way the people killing themselves by keaping is shown, in such a cold and detached way. I think this could be a superb film from M. Night Shyamalan, and it might allay the voices of people who didn't like Lady in the Water as this film is so far at the other end of the spectrum.

The Happening is going to be R-rated, and that means there aren't going to be any punches pulled and the story isn't aimed at Shyamalan's children. Oh no, this is for the horror fans out there...although the film isn't being billed that way.

Here's the trailer from iklipz through AICN:

I think Shyamalan is set to scare us witless, if this teaser is anything to go by.
