What is the Knock at the Cabin release date? M. Night Shyamalan, the man behind some of the best plot twists in movie history, is bringing a new thriller movie to our screens, and we can’t wait to see what he’s cooked up this time. But when can we expect to see his latest effort, and what should we expect?

Shyamalan’s career has been pretty hit and miss, to be honest, but when he does hit, he has produced some of the best movies of all time. The filmmaker has great science fiction movies like Signs and Unbreakable to his name, as well as the brilliant ghost movie The Sixth Sense. He is also responsible for Old though, one of the worst horror movies of 2021, so our expectations should be tempered for Knock at the Cabin.

Whether it’s good or bad, we need to know when the Knock at the Cabin release date will be, and we’ve got all the information you need.

Knock at the Cabin release date

The Knock at the Cabin release date is set for February 3, 2023, so there’s not long to wait until you can see the next Shyamalan film on the big screen.

It’s always good fun to watch a Shyamalan movie play out in a cinema and see the reactions of the audience as he takes his stories in truly wild directions. We recommend catching this in a packed-out theatre on opening weekend for maximum enjoyment.

Knock at the Cabin plot speculation

Now we have a trailer for Knock at the Cabin, we know that the movie is going to involve a family falling victim to a group of intruders who want to stop an impending apocalypse. M. Night Shyamalan movies never play out the way we think they will, and the fact he’s keeping the premise of this one a secret suggests he has some more tricks up his sleeves.

From the trailer, we know the movie will take place in a cabin as Eric (Ben Aldridge) and Andrew (Jonathan Groff) take a relaxing break with their daughter Wen (Kristen Cui).

Their getaway doesn’t stay peaceful for long though, as the mysterious Leonard (Dave Bautista) comes along and, aided by his three equally mysterious friends, attacks the family. The reason? Well, according to the trailer, Leonard is trying to save the world from an apocalypse, and he needs to sacrifice the Andrew and Eric to do so.

Apart from that, we’ve very little to go on. Knock at the Cabin is listed as a thriller movie on IMDb, but we wouldn’t bet against some horror movie elements creeping in here.
