The "Lady" and Her Director

M. Night Shyamalan is back in theaters with his latest fright flick, "The Lady in the Water."

Shyamalan sat down with his leading lady, Bryce Dallas Howard, for an interview as part of AOL Moviefone's Unscripted feature series. The pair, who worked together previously on "The Village," asked each other questions submitted by AOL users.

When one user asked Night how he makes such scary movies -- but doesn't actually show a lot of violence -- he said,
"I just find it stays with you more if the audience is interacting more... The less you show, the more they have to participate and then they take that home with them."

Check out the full interview on Moviefone, and "The Lady in the Water" when it hits theaters this Friday.
