Sixth Sense, The

The Sixth Sense is the story of 9-year-old Cole Sear who claims he is visited by dead people begging for his help. Psychologist Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) takes on this case some months after his previous patient had blamed his therapy for his madness, shot him and killed himself. The plot of this intriguing film brings the viewer repeatedly to a point of explanation only to take another turn, and keeps audiences guessing right to the end. A huge box-office success which moves somewhere between thriller and horror, Haley Joel Osment is superb as the disturbed Cole and Bruce Willis is very convincing as the intense, introverted psychologist.
