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.

That author looks a lot like John Paul Tremblay - Julian from Trailer Park Boys. Same last name and a strong family resemblance. They were born in very different areas, so I doubt they are related, but it is a strange coincidence.

So god still requires a blood sacrifice, in exchange for not mass murdering all of humanity... GOTCHA.

So your headline is a inconsiderate

M. Night has definitely had some stinkers. But he also has the talent for brilliance! And with this one, he actually improved upon the book imo. The resolution that the 4 Horsemen were legitimate. Along with Eric's noble sacrifice for to save his daughters future. Makes the film's conclusion more powerful.

I'm glad all of you liked this move. I was just personally disappointed with every choice.

Another movie that feels like it’s building to something and delivers nothing. Classic trademark of m night sham

I have absolutely zero desire to see this film

Everyone keeps saying there was no twist. I don't get that. There was a twist. Just not the typical M.Night style of twist

I just watch the movie, never read the book, and I’m super shock there was no twist at the end. I would’ve let the world burn.

Why I like the ambiguity of the book I fell the movie's ending is great because it makes the question more solid; "Could you sacrifice your beloved to save the world?" Seems so simple to say yes and the saddest part is the familly is picked because their love is pure. If I had someone I loved and there might be fights but never a thought of leaving them. Being able to picture myself growing old with this person never doubting the relationship? I might say fuck it and lets walk the burnt world together too. I do have more faith in humanity even though it can suck at times but if I had someone like that it'd be a real tough choice. I'd probably offer to be the sacrifice if only because a life without them would seem shitty and seeing the world continue to suck might send me into a spiral of depression knowing what I gave up for it. Granted having a child I loved might help me through it but still, it'd be rough.

Screw you for putting a spoiler in the thumbnail of this video.

You have to believe in the concept of "God" to buy into the premise. I see no proof of the existence of this "God", so I'm saving myself some money. Shyamalan is a busted flush.

Crap movie pushing their agenda.

Actually there is a twist of sorts,the first lightning strike in the Woods would have some viewers believing that Wen was electrocuted, but nope.

This movie taught me that if we leave our future in the hands of gays, we are all doomed.

In my opinion Both Dave Bautista and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson have both transitioned and successfully made the change as actors unlike some other wrestlers that have tried to do the same.
Avatar of @lotusjewell9984
Give Dave B a role, and he fulfills it with top scores

When Dave Batista shows up demanding blood you listen

I stopped watching the video at this time and I watched the entire movie and I just wanted to say this was one of M Night shyamalan's better films this was a really good movie and I cried towards the end this was a really good movie and I'm glad I watched it before this video
Avatar of @c.s.7097
First time ever seeing Dave Bautista as a professional wrestler, never in my wildest dreams would have figured he'd be a bigger star than Dwayne Johnson

God is straight but horror. What a villian.

I hated this movie, I think it was heavily incomplete.
Avatar of @roeimakikiderikadragontwin9898
to be honest we thought the twist was it's a prank & they're on tv.
