Speaking to NME about the film’s controversial ending, he said: “The structure of the movie was always this way. The ‘why they’re there on the beach’ was always there in my head from go, when I first read the graphic novel.

“There’s a couple of frames in the graphic novel that in my mind insinuated this,” he continued. “That’s where my imagination went. That’s when I decided that I was going to make the movie, because I knew what was going on.”

Reviewing the filmNME said: “…There’s no denying that Old delivers some genuinely grotesque shocks while keeping us gripped to the finish.

“Because this is a Shyamalan film, it’s surely no spoiler to point out that there’s an elegant twist coming. So if you have time on your hands, unlike this film’s characters, Old does enough to justify its 108-minute runtime.”
