  Thick, foreboding woods surround an isolated farming community whose residents fear what lies beyond their enclave. Thus, for safety's sake, no citizens venture past the borders of the tiny town. Such is the oppressive, suffocating environment of writer/director M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village," an arcane, carefully constructed suspense film that takes a different approach to his ongoing dalliance with horror and falters a bit. Despite the rural, antiquated milieu, Shyamalan manages to address issues of terror and security in the modern world. He's assisted in his task by acclaimed and/or award-winning actors including Joaquin Phoenix, Adrian Brody, William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver and Brendan Gleeson. The elders of "The Village" keep tight control over the lives of the townspeople, who are unhinged by the prospect of bloodthirsty creatures dwelling in the woods. But Lucius (Phoenix), a brave young man, is unafraid of the supernatural forces that may await him out there; he's determined to enter the woods, even if his lovely, blind neighbor Ivy, played with delicacy and inner strength by Bryce Dallas Howard, beseeches him to not risk his life. As in Shyamalan's "The Sixth Sense" and "Unbreakable," there are a few revelations in store, some that may be easy to figure out. "The Village" is one of his lesser efforts for sheer shock value, but he remains a thoughtful, adept filmmaker.
