    Looks promising.

    They show too much in that second trailer....wish I hadn't watched it.

    The first trailer is didn't need any more of a reveal.


    I love the second poster.

    Thanks for the warning. I haven't watched any of the 3 videos from my first post yet, so perhaps I should keep it that way.

    Thanks for the warning. I'm just not going to watch either. Don't really need to know more than what I get from the poster and the directors reputation. I'll see it.

    I choose my family. I'll leave humanity up to the guy with the highest pay grade.

    Well, hell, I live in a wooden cabin . . . an' if anything funky knocks at my door then I ain't gonna answer!

    'nuff said.

    I'll save my cockatiel and my family and, if I have time, I'll save humanity. I think that's reasonable.

    I’m excited. I don’t always like his movies but he’s done enough good ones that I’ll always check out his work. This was filmed in a town near me, right by my high school. It’s full of creepy woods

    I liked his last one OLD, so I will definitely see this one.

    Noticed Rupert Grint in the trailer I saw yesterday.

    Looked on IMDB - it's his first movie since 2015! :eek:

    Though he stayed busy on TV.

    I really liked Shyamalan's first 3 films (I've got a boxed set with them on blu-ray) so hopefully this new one will be good.

    MNS peaked with those 3 movies and has been hit or (mostly) miss since then.

    Liked "Unbreakable", hated "Split", liked "Glass".

    His last - 2021's "Old" - had issues but was reasonably entertaining.

    The review embargo has lifted and it's not a disaster. 73% so far on RT (59 reviews compiled so far).

    Opposite side here, I liked Split (mostly) but hated Glass. Unbreakable is still one of my favorites of his.

    'Knock at the Cabin' Review: What If the Twist Was There Is No Twist? - Variety

    "No surprise, M. Night Shyamalan’s latest is long, slow and disappointing...his latest supernatural thriller feels like a tired remix of letdowns like 'Signs' and 'The Happening.' ...It’s all quite unpleasant, but also relatively unpredictable, and that’s a plus. The cabin looks like a soundstage, the visual effects are cheap and unconvincing, and the acting is all over the place (like eavesdropping on auditions for different movies), but that’s all part of the Shyamalan brand. He’s had a hit-and-miss track record, and yet Shyamalan remains a master of tension. All that suspense builds to a grand anticlimax here, but at least the experience doesn’t let us get ahead of the plot. If anything, it plays funny games with the genre, perversely asking us to empathize with The Strangers. You get the picture. “Knock at the Cabin” takes a premise audiences think they know and does something unconventional and (alas) frustrating with it. Trouble is, these days, it’s no surprise to be let down by a Shyamalan movie.

  25. Funny how they neglected to credit the author of the novel the film is based on in the posters.
