Dave Bautista and Jonathan Groff lead the cast in the ‘Old’ and ‘Sixth Sense’ director’s ‘Home Invasion’ horror film.
Oscar-nominated “The Sixth Sense” and “Old” director M. Night Shyamalan’s latest chiller takes on apocalyptic proportions. ‘Knock at the Cabin’, his first feature film since old Gael Garcia Bernal and Vicky Krieps’ mad final appearance before our eyes in real time on the beach, is based on the horror novel ‘The Cabin at the End of the World’ by Paul. G Tremblay. It’s only in theaters on February 3, 2023, per Universal Pictures — meaning no Peacock day and date here — and you can check out the official trailer below.
According to an official synopsis, while vacationing in a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand the family make an unthinkable decision to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what to believe before all is lost.
These Parents are played by Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge, and These Strangers are played by Dave Bautista, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rupert Grint and Abby Quinn.
Shyamalan’s last film, Old, made decent numbers at the box office in summer 2021. The film, which Shyamalan also wrote, grossed more than $90 million – impressive for an original thriller in a pandemic-stricken climate. There were rumors that “Knock at the Cabin” would be told in one long take, and while that didn’t turn out to be true, Shyamalan is certainly capable of his old tricks again.
During filming, he tweeted (per Collider): “A week ended this week on #knockatthecabin such complicated performances. Very dark, emotional film. One recording shook me so badly that I had to walk away to collect myself. Hopefully when you see it you will feel it too.”
Shyamalan is writing the adapted screenplay, and this time he’s working with Jarin Blaschke, the Oscar-nominated cinematographer on Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse and more recently The Northman.
Dave Bautista was last seen in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and is preparing to return as Glossu “Beast” Rabban for Dune: Part Two. Most recently, Jonathan Groff also voiced in the Netflix miniseries Lost Ollie and starred in The Matrix Resurrections.
