Save your family or the world?
It was announced today that M. Night Shyamalan’s new film Knock at the Cabin, an adaptation of Paul Tremblay’s book The Cabin at the End of the World, has been officially rated an R. The announcement of Bloody Disgusting is significant as it will be the director’s first film to receive such a rating since 2008’s The Happening.
Most of the films Shymalan directed were rated PG13, including The Sixth Sense, The Village, Signs, Unbreakable, and Split, so Knock at the Cabin will likely push the boundaries of violence and horror far more than most of his other films.
If you’re interested, you can read a brief synopsis of Knock at the Cabin’s story below:
“While vacationing in a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who require the family to make an unthinkable decision to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what to believe before all is lost.”
Paul Tremblay’s book won the Horror Writers Association’s 2019 Bram Stroker Award for Novel, and with that summary it makes perfect sense that Shymalan would be drawn to the material.
The cast of Knock at the Cabin includes Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Rupert Grint (The Harry Potter franchise), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old), Ben Aldridge (Our Girl) and Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter).
