  7. What KNOCK AT THE

Knock at the Cabin asks an impossible question: Would you sacrifice someone you love to save the world?

But surprisingly, the movie becomes less about this question and more about belief. Is the choice real? In this video, I consider what the movie says about these questions and compare it to Paul Tremblay’s book which this movie is adapted from. M. Night Shyamalan made some significant changes which alter the story’s meaning.

I doubt I will watch this. In the real world, I don’t go to my land in the woods without packing heat. All my neighbors out there have shooting ranges on their land. Some people show up at my place, they are getting shot real fast and that would be the end of the movie. There’s two guys in this and one looks like he was some sort of fighter. Uh, you take the people out with no hesitation. This must be California. This wouldn’t fly in Texas or Florida.

It's always so funny watching people try and run from the inevitable!

Just turn around and face it ! It will be better and quicker and less painful .

Thank you. This movie was pretty thematically obvious.... at least I thought so walking out of the theater.... but in all the weeks of searching, you are the first person to lay out the theme with admiration for it's application. Big big thanks for that.

The moral of the story is....that gay men will save the world🤣🤣🤣 What a crappy movie. It had potential to be really good. Nope...let's push the gay agend.

Wow! The book is so much better, so much more nuanced. I like the open-ended ending. It was an OK movie, but it could have been so much more impactful if M. Night didn't make any changes from the book.

This was probably the worst movie I’ve ever watched

It's a stupid story. And incorporating religion into it, makes it even less convincing.

I think I would have preferred the ambiguous ending.

I love watching NPCs in the art world (writers are no exception) succumb to TDS. It pays the bills.

I’ve never heard tsunami pronounced like the Cartoon Network on purpose.
