About Knock at the Cabin Movie:

The film is based on the 2018 novel The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul G. Tremblay, the first adaptation of one of his works.

The Black List and GLAAD List listed the initial draft by Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman as one of the most popular unproduced screenplays of 2019.

The film received an R-rating from the Motion Picture Association for “violence and language”, making it Shyamalan’s second film to receive that rating after The Happening (2008).

As with director M. Night Shyamalan’s last movie, Old (2021), Knock at the Cabin will be shot on 35mm film. Shyamalan and his cinematographer Jarin Blaschke used lenses from the 1990s to give the film a “classic ’90s thriller look”.

Cinematographer Jarin Blaschke, best known for his collaborations with director Robert Eggers, previously worked with M. Night Shyamalan on the series Servant (2019). Knock at the Cabin is Shyamalan’s first film since 2016 not photographed by Mike Gioulakis.

Nikki Amuka-Bird and Rupert Grint previously worked with Shyamalan. Amuka-Bird was in Old (2021) and Grint was in Servant (2019).

Nikki Amuka-Bird and Jonathan Groff previously starred in a Lana Wachowski film. Amuka-Bird was in Jupiter Ascending (2015) and Groff was in The Matrix Resurrections (2021).

This was the last film from M. Night Shyamalan to be released by Universal as soon after its release he signed a multi-year deal with Warner Bros. Pictures.

Knock at the Cabin premiered in New York City at the Rose Hall on January 30, 2023, and was theatrically released in the United States on February 3, 2023, by Universal Pictures. The release was originally set for February 17 before being brought forward by two weeks as to avoid competition with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. It received generally positive reviews from critics and has grossed over $54 million worldwide.

Knock at the Cabin was released for VOD on February 21, 2023, followed with a Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K UHD release by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on May 9, 2023.
