* BrokenStreak: Instantly moved Shyamalan from the next great director of his time to a laughingstock.

Rumors exist that it was partially inspired by a YoungAdult novel called ''Literature/RunningOutOfTime'' (note: reading the summary on that page will spoil this film.)

* AuraVision: Ivy Walker's DisabilitySuperPower. Note that only certain people can be seen, which is why [[spoiler: she doesn't know it's Noah under the costume at the end]].



* {{Bathos}}: The AnswerCut from Kitty declaring her love for Lucius to her crying on the bed is clearly meant to be funny - if only due to the sheer MoodWhiplash. But at the same time, you still feel sorry for this poor girl who's had her heart broken.



** Averted by Kitty, who just spits out her declaration of love.

to:

** Averted by Kitty, who just spits out her declaration of love. She correctly assumes that Lucius is this, just not for her.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: Alice describes the black boxes that each of the village elders own as something that "the evil things from [her] past are kept close and not forgotten."

* NothingIsScarier

to:

* NothingIsScarierNothingIsScarier: The creatures are barely seen, the horror instead coming from what the villagers fear they ''might'' do.



* TheReveal: [[spoiler: The Elders are so concerned about the village's innocence and purity because they have all been traumatized by modern society and believe that returning to an 1800s style of living will protect them and remove any further personal harm or grief.]]

* BittersweetEnding [=/=] DownerEnding: The movie definitely doesn't end on a happy note. On one hand, [[spoiler: Ivy made it back to the towns and Lucius will be saved from his grave injuries]]. On the other, [[spoiler: it is revealed that the elders are leading the villagers to live a life of lie based on their own loss of faith to modern society]]. Whether or not [[spoiler: the park ranger being aware of the HiddenElfVillage's existence]] is a good thing is also up for debate.

Like most of Shyamalan's movies, the film has a TwistEnding.

TwistEnding, and a [[BrokenBase quite controversial one]] at that; the ending garnered so many split reactions that it's the reason why this movie is widely seen as the start of Shyamalan's fall from grace.

** Ivy is outside trying to find Noah during a game of hide and seek, with a major rule being that neither can hide indoors. She has a conversation and a walk with Lucius, who takes her back to her house. She is asked by her mother to fetch a blanket, and does  only since she is blind, she can't see Noah standing in the closet.

Added DiffLines:
