A family is trapped on a mysterious beach that causes them to age rapidly.

Summer is here, and what's a better way to celebrate than to watch a horror film perfectly fitted for the season?

M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming supernatural psychological horror-thriller film, 'Old,' is guaranteed to leave you with a dreadful feeling on a warm sunny day at a beach. In case you do not know, Shyamalan is the brilliant mind behind other high-acclaimed flicks such as 'Lady in the Water (2006)', 'The Last Airbender (2010)', and 'The Happening (2008)'. Now, the director is back with another bone-chilling thriller that will dive deep into our fears of growing old and running out of time.

'Old' follows a family who gets trapped on an island that causes them to age rapidly. Haunted by the supernatural forces that threaten to reduce their entire life existence within a day, the family, along with a few other tourists, must find a way to get out of the deadly place.

'Old' is based on the novel 'Sandcastle' by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. It has a star-studded cast and an unconventional premise that will surely compel you to reimagine yourself in the film's petrifying situation.

What Is The Plot Of 'Old'?

A family on a tropical vacation decides to go on a secret beach. Despite a firm warning that says kids are not allowed in the place, the parents decided to bring along the children.

On the beach, they found stuff from the hotel in the sand. They seemed like they haven't been abandoned for a long time. What was supposed to be a relaxing getaway turned horrible after they discovered that the beach they are in is quickly accelerating their aging, especially the children. The mysterious island could diminish the children's entire lifespan in a single day. They must race against time to save themselves, but no matter what they do, there seems to be no way out.

The family eventually discovers the bigger reason that binds them to the place. "We're connected to something bigger...We're here for a reason," the official trailer teased. What could that reason be?
