the-visit-blu-ray-coverSay what? Two contests in one week? Popdose is really sending the love in 2016.

The site is offering one lucky reader a Blu-ray copy of M. Night Shyamalan’s latest twisty thriller, The Visit.

In the film, a brother and sister are sent to their grandparents’ secluded Pennsylvania farmhouse for a weeklong stay. They quickly discover that something is not right with the elderly couple. Faced with strange rules and increasingly frightening behavior, the children soon realize it will take all their wits to make it home alive.

For The Visit, Shyamalan adopted the found footage technique to tell his story. Working with Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) and going low tech seemed to work out for the Academy Award nominated Shyamalan, as The Visit garnered his best reviews in years and proved to be a box office success.

The movie stars Kathryn Hahn (Transparent), Ed Oxenbould (Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day), Olivia DeJonge (The Sisterhood of Night), Peter McRobbie (Lincoln, Spider-Man 2), and Deanna Dunagan (Have a Little Faith, Running Scared).

The Visit is released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and is available now on Digital HD, Blu-ray and On Demand. The Blu-ray and DVD are packed with exclusive bonus features including deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurette, and a suspenseful alternate ending

To enter to win, simply answer the following question: What is the name of the Shyamalan film that starred Denis Leary and Rosie O’Donnell?
