Knock at the Cabin Featurette: Interview with M. Night Shyamalan

M. Night Shyamalan has been terrifying audiences for over 20 years, beginning in the 1999s The sixth Sense. Shyamalan’s psychological thrillers are packed with supernatural elements that usually end with a big plot twist. His latest endeavor Knock at the hutcombines a home invasion with the apocalypse to tell a story that feels larger than life despite taking place in a remote location.

Knock At The Cabin – “A Look Inside”

“I believe in this kind of storytelling, that when you come to the cinema, you want to see something incredibly powerful, incredibly emotional, experiential, but you want it to be bigger than life,” Shyamalan said in a featurette. “I’m very drawn to captivity stories and tell very big stories through a small window.”

parents Eric (Mindhunters Jonathan Groff) and Andrew (Pennyworths Ben Aldridge) travel to a remote cabin with their young daughter Wen (Kristen Cui) for a family vacation. Their escape is interrupted by four strangers – Leonard (dunes Dave Bautista), Adriene (Old Nikki Amuka-Vogel), Sabrina (Small women Abby Quinn) and Redmond (servant Rupert Grint) – who break into the cabin and take the family hostage. The family must willingly sacrifice one of their members or the world will end.

“There is a family and their home is invaded by four strangers who have been asked to choose a sacrifice to save humanity,” Bautista said. There’s no place to run. There’s no place to hide. So I think it’s like layers of nightmares in this movie.”
