Who’s going?

Taking place in the cabin at the end of the world.

Yes, I know it’s silly but there’s something about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest feature that makes me think. Based on Paul G. Tremblay Cabin at the end of the world (2018), which won the Bram Stoker Award, Knock in the cabin. Blooms in sunny desert. A little girl, Wayne (Kristen Cui), studies grasshoppers, putting them in a large glass jar, naming them and writing down their moods in a notebook.

Knock in the cabin.

Story: A couple and their daughter are scared out of their country mansion by a knock and four threatening strangers

She meets and talks to Leonard (Dave Bautista) even though she initially says she doesn’t talk to strangers. Wayne becomes suspicious when Leonard tells him that he and his friends have to do something they don’t want to do.

Seeing Leonard and his three companions: Sabrina (Nicky Amoka Byrd), Adrien (Abby Quinn) and Redmond (Rupert Grunt) with their terrifying, makeshift weapons, Wayne tells his parents, Eric (Jonathan Groff) and Andrew (Ben). She runs to warn him. Aldridge).

After huffing and puffing and finally blowing up part of the house, Leonard explains that the end of the world is near and that Eric, Andrew, and Wayne are the only ones who can stop it through willing sacrifice. Leonard uses news of tsunamis, earthquakes, planes falling out of the sky, and mysterious viruses to prove his point.

Shot with 1990s lenses for an old-school sensational look, Knock in the cabin. Beautifully framed, with tight close-ups and beautiful takes — the setting (or was it rising?) of the sun and legs running away from the sofa immediately comes to mind. Despite the horror of the choices that must have been made, and the general likability of the cast, Knock in the cabin., does not hold your eye. There are holes in the logic and a vaguely disturbing preaching that explains the hesitation in the ‘knock, knock’ joke.

Then another movie old In Shyamalan’s two-picture deal with Universal Pictures, Knock in the cabin. 2008 is Shyamalan’s second film to receive an ‘R’ rating. The Happening was the first. The vanillaization of Tremblay’s novel for a traditional Hollywood ending may have dampened the overall effect, but Knock in the cabin. You don’t have to answer. And if you do decide to open the door, just be prepared to be mildly entertained.

Knocking in the Cabin is currently playing in theaters.
