Night Shayamalan enviromental nightmare THE HAPPENING!

Philadelphia high-school science teacher Elliot Moore (Mark Wahlberg at his most Wahlbbergian) is discussing the disappearance of the bees with his students when the staff is summoned to the theater and briefed about a mysterious event that is currently unfolding in New York City. Citizens in the vicinity of Central Park have suddenly and inexplicably begun seizing up just before killing themselves by whatever means are at their disposal (a similar desire happened in theaters when this film premiered). As the phenomena begins to spread and talk of terrorism fills the airwaves, Elliot, his wife, Alma (Zooey Deschanel), their friend Julian (John Leguizamo), and his daughter, Jess (Ashlyn Sanchez), try to find a place to lay low. But where can you lay low from the wind? Complete with an abundance off suicides and a very heartfelt conversation with a tree The Movie Interrupiton of THE  HAPPENING has it all!
