Are you afraid of home invasions? Losing a loved one? The apocalypse? The unknown? The upcoming M. Night Shyamalan flick Knock at the Cabin will dive into these fears (and probably a few more).
The cast discusses the film in a new clip released by Universal Pictures. Dave Bautisa described the movie as “layers of nightmares.” Rupert Grint added that it combines two of his biggest fears. And director Shyamalan said he wants the movie to play on individual fears, but also tap into something greater.
“When you come to the movie theater, you want to see something incredibly powerful, incredibly emotional, experiential… You want it to be bigger than life,” Shyamalan said.
Check out the behind-the-scenes clip of the cast discussing Knock at the Cabin below.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.
In addition to Bautista and Grint, the film also stars Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abby Quinn, and Kristen Cui.
The movie is based on the national best-selling novel The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay.
Knock at the Cabin premieres February 3.
