  7. Knock at The Cabin

Knock at the Cabin reviewed by Matt Donato

Knock at the Cabin fails to knock the classic cabin in the woods horror methods out of the park. M. Night Shyamalan abides by unfittingly formulaic standards and produces a tonal flatliner despite an arsenal of emotionally targeted beatdowns and prophecy-spouting lambs led to slaughter in the name of blind faith. There’s nothing uniquely surprising or exceptionally rousing, which is a shame given the unfathomably dreadful predicament and an interesting turn of a performance from Dave Bautista. It’s a film without sensation that feels like it’s pulling its punches across the board – development is stunted, ideas lack passion, and the camera avoids visible violence – before the ending strolls off into the sunset with barely any goodbye. Thematic messages tethered to Old Testament interpretations are lost when the story wraps due to increasingly stale predictability, as Knock at the Cabin exposes a Shyamalan script with surprisingly little to say.

Thanks for this review.But that's not how you pronounce the Mandarin Chinese surname of Cui, it should be "Tsway" not "Kuee".

One day I'll make a movie that just stops trying with the names and calls itself Cabin.

Plot twist: Bautista is not really in the movie. He stands so still that he is invisible to the human eye

I'm predicting one of two possible plot twist endings:
A) The cult is right, and by defying and/or killing them, the world DOES end.
B) The cult is wrong, and when the family fights back, nothing happens.

Highly critical review considering you guys reviewed Thor love and thunder so highly on such meagre merits..

Something tells me if the couple weren't two men, everyone would be singing its praises about how tense and exciting it is.

The point of the book is that the proof that the group wants the family to accept that end of the world is happening is just some basic natural disasters that happen all the time.
