When the first trailer for M.Evening Shayamalan’s subsequent horror flick, Knock on the Cabin, arrived, it regarded principally like a vacation-home-invasion film the place the invaders had been performed by folks like Dave Bautista and Rupert Grint and had been presumably cultists. Which will nonetheless be the case, however this new trailer reveals there’s much more happening, and it’s pure Shyamalan.

Knock on the Cabin – Official Trailer 2

Yep, in some way, it seems that the world will finish until one of many cabin’s three occupants is killed by the others, a very ludicrous premise given considerably extra weight by the footage of the continued apocalypse and a aircraft falling out of the sky above the cabin. It looks like such an M. Evening Shyamalan concept that I used to be shocked to find that is truly based mostly on a novel titled The Cabin on the Finish of the World (a significantly better title, frankly) by Paul Tremblay, which was apparently very well-received, successful the Bram Stoker Award in 2019. Will it translate to the display? Boy, I positive don’t know, as a result of this seems to be at the least as goofy because it does scary, and on the finish of the day it’s additionally a Shyamalan movie. That doesn’t imply it won’t be a enjoyable watch, although.

Knock on the Cabin will knock on theater doorways on February 3.
