Re: Knock At The Cabin (2023, M. Night Shyamalan)

I suggested this fact five months ago, but it’s been confirmed by the author himself that M. Night Shyamalan‘s forthcoming Knock at the Cabin is a direct adaptation of Paul Tremblay‘s “The Cabin at the End of the World”.

While they don’t explain why, CNBC says that after all that waiting, dealmaking and deal-remaking, Tremblay had to keep hush-hush about the movie’s source material. Tremblay is now clear to talk about Knock at the Cabin, and talked about it a bit in the link above.

Starring are Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead), Rupert Grint (“Servant”) and Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old) star alongside Ben Aldridge (“Pennyworth”) and Jonathan Groff (“Mindhunter”).

The film is a home invasion horror film that takes place during the apocalypse.

Here’s a synopsis from Good Reads:

“Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

“One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, ‘None of what’s going to happen is your fault.’ Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: ‘Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world.'”

Shyamalan writes, directs and produces the thriller for Universal Pictures.

Knock at the Cabin will be released by Universal Pictures on February 3, 2023.

That trailer gives away more than I would've expected for a Shyamalan movie. I would've thought it better to let viewers discover the antagonists' motivation alongside the characters. Still, the book was good and this looks like it'll be a strong and suspenseful adaptation of it.

That's way early for a trailer of an original IP, isn't it?

It would makes sense that Universal would want it playing in front of Halloween Ends.

It looks alright but... It's M. Night. He's far too inconsistent to give me hope this'll be anything more than bottom of the barrel DTV trash. I'll maybe give it a look on Peacock.

I haven't read the source material but that a good sign that based on the trailer it looks like a strong adaptation.

Previous to this, Shyamalan adapted the Graphic Novel Sandcastle (Pierre Oscar Levy/Frederik Peeters) for Old (2021).

I also haven't read that yet, so I'm not sure how strong of an adaptation it is.

The trailer for this film definitely has me interested.

Not being familiar with this movie until clicking on this thread, I find it amusing that I was able to tell Dave Bautista is in it just by the silhouette of his character.

And it's also weird that they keep referring to Rupert Grint as starring in Servant. I think he had at least one higher profile role.

Shaymalan is a producer and director on Servant. I don’t see why Harry Potter would be mentioned.

Agreed! If the film is as good as this poster, we'll be in business

The poster reminds me less of Film Noir (as Shyamalan mentioned) and more of the output of Saul Bass.

I can't speak of the source material, but Old is a horrible movie, thanks in no small part to the terrible writing.

I just watched Old for the first time yesterday. You’re right, the writing, particularly the dialogue was atrocious.

I’m usually a Shyamalan defender but Old just isn’t very good.

Earlier this week, I finished reading Sandcastle (the Graphic Novel this film is sourced from) and while it was vague & cryptic compared to Shyamalan's film, I definitely preferred it.

As the endings are radically different, as are a lot of the plot points that Shyamalan splashes in to support his ending.

I wonder if there will be some kind of twist in the film?

This is out this week.

I'm not sure when the review embargo lifts, but some early Twitter reactions seem to be positive.

This is going to be a big hit, that seems pretty obvious.

I'm excited for it but apprehensive as to how the end will be handled.

70%+ on RT. He's always been divisive but he's a welcome change with his unique style and original ideas - in this case an adapted work from a novel, however. Will have to catch it in the theater given the mostly positive remarks. And it will take the top spot in the BO finally dethroning the Cameron flick.
