Honestly what I respect most about M Night, is how he had a giant screw up in his film carreer, a genuine huge screw up. And while he never fully admitted his faults in that film, he never allowed it to shake his confidence in himself. It took him some time, but eventually, he got his mojo back and just simply made banger after banger. Truly one of the best film makers of our time.

There's so much that's unappealing about movies today it's amazing. No matter the director, everything looks kind of ugly.

It's badly acted...Something was off in the frenetic breathing the actors were doing...

I gotta give it to M. Night for always keeping things interesting! Whether we love his films or end up being disappointed, you can’t say he didn’t put in an effort. I think Knock at the Cabin is one of his best films. Can’t wait to see it again this Thursday!

I need to read the book. I saw the movie and it's one of my top 3 films from him. Dave Bautista is incredible!

Never realized there was a book first... guessed was a screenplay first. Now I am wondering if it was that specific place that “controls” the planet.

I'm sorry but I think it was a dumb decision to make this film be for "Everyone" for being Rated R. It should easily been a PG-13 film. I wished it was actually a legit Rated R film.

Another bad British garbage junk propatainment movie impossibly reset into an American setting, like the phony British author of the bad British book, that NO real existing person will ever see or hear of. It doesn't work and it doesn't make sense, especially impossibly set into an American setting of all places, but the movie "industry", propatainment, is famously and notoriously empty and dead so this kind of British transplant fiction doesn't come as a surprise to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!

The ending of the book is definitely better than the movie, but I suppose if they did it, it would be way too similar to another cabin-related movie.
