KNOCK AT THE CABIN (2023) Review
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan
This is not the home invasion movie or at least not the one you’re thinking. M. Night Shyamalan’s latest mystery thriller might not make sense at first but as the story progresses, you find yourself intrigued and engaged at the story and the characters. The story kind of needs you to be a believer of the possibilities of the future, may it be plausible or just demented. And that’s what you’re about to experience in the whole film.
Save your family or save humanity. Make the choice. How could you possibly make a choice between your loved ones and the entire human race’s existence? And in a time when prophecies and supernatural phenomenon are suspicious especially from strangers who look like they’re about do something dangerous to you and your family.
Dave Bautista proves he’s the better wrestler-turned-actor. I haven’t seen him in a more serious role than this but he’s effective, he knows the character and what the character wants. Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldrigde look like they’re fighting for their lives and their family here. It’s just a stellar little cast who are chosen to play the right roles for them to portray.
Knock at the Cabin is M. Night Shyamalan doing what he does best, pique your interest. And you’ll just go with it until it’s finale whether you like it or not.
