Trips to secluded cabins in picturesque woods are the worst family vacation. And M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin is guaranteed to support that argument.
Based on Paul Tremblay’s bestselling novel, The Cabin at the End of the World, Shyamalan’s adaptation sees Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter, Frozen) and Ben Aldridge (Fleabag), go on a family trip to the woods with their daughter (Kristen Cui). And like all family forest excursions in horror, the trip goes south pretty quickly.
Soon after their arrival, a stranger called Leonard (Dave Bautista) arrives with a whole crew of weapon-bearing friends. Then, he cryptically shares that the entire fate of the world rests on the decision of a happy, gay couple. What is the decision they’ll have to make? Who is Leonard? And is there even an apocalypse going on outside these woods?
All these questions and more surface in Knock at the Cabin’s first trailer. For answers, we’ll have to wait until next year.
Knock at the Cabin is coming to theaters Feb. 3, 2023.
