Hey guys what’s happening? Niyat here with film comics explained. As requested, today we’ll be exploring Knock at the Cabin, the 2023 post-apocalyptic thriller written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, based on the novel The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul G. Tremblay.

Starring Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Jonathan Groff, Kristen Cui, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Abby Quinn, the film revolves around a family whose holiday is upended by a cult. Told they need to sacrifice one of their own to prevent the end of the world, the thriller has them and the audience question whether the invaders were lunatics or messengers of truth.

Much like the rest of M. Night Shyamalan’s filmography, the backbone of the movie is intrigue and mystery. A group are faced with weird supernatural circumstances and are forced to make tough self-revelatory choices that go on to define them, and occasionally the world around them.

Part of what lured the director to the project is his fascination with the weird and unexplainable. Ironically, as we’ll discuss in this video, that didn’t stop him from taking certain liberties that traded the ambiguity in the novel for more explicit themes and iconography. The guy loves his symbolism.

In this video, we’re going to explain the narrative, the main characters in the story and how the film differs from the novel.

Ambiguity is code for bad writing

Any "god" that plays these games can get fucked. Sounds like some petty toddler Greek-god level bullshit to me. And if the world burns, we had a good run and it's only downhill from here anyway. so nothing of value is lost.

I love this movie. The twist is, there is no twist. You're told everything at the beginning and it's great

They did say they’re not going to do this by force also don’t have a choice, and they said they need to sacrifice someone in that family before the impending catastrophe events of the apocalypse happens.

They weren’t a cult
