M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller Knock at the Cabin is set to reach theatres in less than two weeks, on February 3rd. With that date so close, Universal Pictures has unveiled a featurette that takes a behind-the-scenes look at the movie and includes interviews with Shyamalan and cast members Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Rupert Grint (Servant), and Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old). You can watch it in the embed at the bottom of this article.

Scripted by Shyamalan, Steve Desmond, and Michael Sherman, Knock at the Cabin has the following synopsis: While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.

The film is an adaptation of the Paul Tremblay novel The Cabin at the End of the World (which can be purchased at THIS LINK. Here’s the description: Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, “None of what’s going to happen is your fault”. Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: “Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world.” Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay.

Shyamalan says his movie is a “different version” of the story Tremblay came up with. Bautista, Grint, and Amuka-Bird are joined in the Knock at the Cabin cast by Abby Quinn (Torn Hearts), Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth), and Jonathan Groff (The Matrix Resurrections).

Knock at the Cabin is rated R for “violence and language”. This is only Shyamalan’s second R-rated movie, following the very unpopular 2008 thriller The Happening.

I’m looking forward to watching Knock at the Cabin at the first opportunity. Will you be watching this movie? Let us know – and tell us what you think of the featurette – by leaving a comment below.
