Malcom Crowe (Bruce Willis) is a child psychologist who receives an award on the same night that he is visited by a very unhappy ex-patient. After this encounter, Crowe takes on the task of curing a young boy with the same ills as the ex-patient (Donnie Wahlberg) . This boy "sees dead people". Crowe spends a lot of time with the boy much to the dismay of his wife (Olivia Williams). Cole's mom (Toni Collette) is at her wit's end with what to do about her son's increasing problems. Crowe is the boy's only hope.Written by

All of the ghosts that Cole sees are wearing the same clothes and have the same bodily damage that had when they died. Even the ones who don't know they're dead still show their wounds. Malcolm's wound never shows up until he realizes he's dead. Additionally, he's able to wear different clothes and interact with his tape recorder, use files and other equipment.
Cole says, "They only see what they want to see," which neatly and intentionally explains why Bruce doesn't see his own blood until he realizes he's dead. Likewise, ghosts constantly interact with the real world, hence Cole's scratches, the poisoned girl's ability to give Cole the VHS tape, etc. Regarding Bruce's clothes, it appears he only adds/removes his jacket, but either way the explanation that he sees what he wants to see should be sufficient.

It's getting cold.
That is one fine frame; one fine frame that is. How much...

Cole visits an old man that lost his wife a long time ago and is lonely. Cole finds some diaries that belonged to his wife and the old man is happy.
After Malcom hears the voice on the tape recorder he goes back to the old man's house to see if he is doing better, which he is.
Cole playing with his figurines: two are underneath a red cloth, Malcom asks Cole why and Cole gives him the men's name, rank, why they were there, and information about their wives.
Extendend ending: after Malcom is gone, the camera pans from Anna to the television featuring Malcom on video expressing his love for her.
The Sixth Sense is a brilliant film, plain and simple. It is unique in that it relies on imagination and psychology to scare you and make you think twice about the world around you. The director did a fabulous job constructing the imagery of the film, and I genuinely did not know about the ending until it was revealed. Quite a shock! The Sixth Sense goes in my book as the single greatest psychological horror film I have ever seen. Anyone who bashes it are simply not giving it a chance or don't fully realize the complex dialog and imagery around them. Brilliant
