Inspired by Paul Tremblay’s novel The Cabin on the End of the World, M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock on the Cabin reimagines the psychological, post-apocalyptic thriller and lures you into its own twisted Sophie’s Choice. The movie was met with blended reactions, however it’s an exhilarating watch nonetheless. If you are prepared to observe one other of Shyamalan’s decisive flicks, here is every part you could know.

What is Knock on the Cabin about?
A family of three, Eric (Jonathan Groff), Andrew (Ben Aldridge), and their 7-year-old daughter, Wen (Kristen Cui), are vacationing in a cabin in the woods. Like many movies set in the center of nowhere, the trio’s trip takes a darkish flip when 4 strangers show up at their door.
How ‘Knock on the Cabin’ is completely different from the novel ‘The Cabin on the End of the World’
Led by a mysterious man called Leonard (Dave Bautista), the frightful foursome informs the family that one in all them must die to cease an imminent apocalypse. As Eric and Andrew grapple with this pressured sacrifice, we’re left questioning whether or not or not the apocalypse is definitely actual, who Leonard actually is, and who amongst these people is definitely going to have to die.
Knock on the Cabin also stars Rupert Grint, Abby Quinn, and Nikki Amuka-Bird.
What have people said about Knock on the Cabin?
On the movie, Mashable’s Kristy Puchko writes, “For maybe two-thirds of this movie, I was deeply invested. I was drawn in by this peculiar conundrum, where a family is caught between an impossible choice and an implacable gang of eschatological fanatics. The question of whether these harbingers are right or delusional not only sucks us into the plot, but also places the audience firmly into the camping boots of Andrew and Eric — bound to our chairs, helpless to do anything but listen and watch as horror unfolds.”
However, Puchko warns, “Those who read Tremblay’s book may think they know what will happen next, but the script by Shyamalan and co-writers Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman radically diverts from the source material around the halfway mark. Without spoiling the film’s twists, I can report that these massive changes not only impact the story’s conclusion but also its very message. And on this journey, your mileage may vary depending on how much of a believer you are.”
