While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.
Like his previous film, “Old,” which is based on a Swiss graphic novel, M. Night Shyamalan will turn to some interesting source material for his next film. In the summer of 2022, it was revealed that “Knock at the Cabin,” Shyamalan’s upcoming thriller, is based on Paul Tremblay’s horror novel “The Cabin at the End of the World,” setting the stage for some very interesting storytelling.
Though we don’t yet know how Shyamalan’s version of the tale will twist the narrative, “The Cabin at the End of the World” follows a couple and their daughter as they’re set upon by a group of mysterious, weapon-wielding people at a secluded cabin. The people claim they’re there to save the world, and that in order to prevent a global catastrophe, one member of this small family must be sacrificed. What follows is a tense physical and philosophical standoff with consequences none of them could’ve imagined.
Shyamalan’s film will star Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge, and Kristen Cui as the family in danger, and Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Abby Quinn will play the home invaders. Expect to see some truly chilling horror when “Knock at the Cabin” arrives on February 3, 2023.
