Did Anybody See The Old Abc Special

 I guess this was a special on ABC that aired a couple of weeks before Signs came out. Did anybody see it?

M. Night Shyamalan's Signs of Fear
July 22, 8/7c


Host M. Night Shyamalan (writer/director, Signs, The Sixth Sense Unbreakable) explores the compelling phenomenon of fear by exploring our most spine-tingling scares. In each of the special's ten segments, real people describe a true frightening experience, exploring how that fright altered their behaviors and lives.

See the official web site for Signs, opening Friday, August 2.

Among the stories is that of Leslie Cunning of Fresno, CA, who never felt compelled to lock the doors to her home during the day ? until she found herself trapped in it with a dangerous fugitive from the law. Can she ever feel truly safe again?

And what if you come to fear something you once loved? Eleven-year-old Corey Brooks loved to swim in the ocean, until he was attacked by a shark in shallow water. Likewise, a happily married couple from Ohio loved to travel, until they endured a horrific airplane crash in Sioux City, IA.

M. Night Shyamalan's Signs of Fear also explores terrors like alien abduction and poltergeists. You may not believe they can even happen ? until they happen to you. And the victims react to these horrors the same way they do to fear in the "real" world: Pulses quicken, pupils widen and systems flood with adrenaline. All of the people in this program face fears so powerful, they change their lives to escape ever having to endure them again.

In addition to the true life stories, M. Night Shyamalan's Signs of Fear uses footage from his films and others ? such as Poltergeist and Twister ? to illustrate the emotion of fear.
