This knock at the door will be frightening.
Knock at the Cabin–the next horror film from acclaimed filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan–will land in theaters Feb. 3, 2023–and it looks like it will be more intense than some of his more recent offerings.
The feature–written and directed by Shyamalan and inspired by Paul Tremblay’s novel The Cabin at the End of the World–has been rated R for “violence and language,” making it his first movie with that rating since 2008’s The Happening.
The balance of Shyamalan’s films–including The Sixth Sense, Signs, Unbreakable, Split, Glass and last year’s Old–have been rated PG-13.
In Knock at the Cabin, a young girl and her parents–while vacationing at a remote cabin– are “taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse,” according to the synopsis.
With limited access to the outside world, the family “must decide what they believe–before all is lost.”
The cast includes such genre stars as Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Ben Aldridge and Jonathan Groff.
