★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ For those of you curious and wondering about M. Night's latest offering? Fear not (or fear a lot)... Knock at the Cabin is good. REALLY good. A cabin in the woods home invasion with an and of the world apocalypse central theme with undercurrents of LGBT targeting, and the emotional fortitude of what it means to be a family. It's all there, and the plot twist is not a surprise, but a promise, this time.
★★ out of ★★★★★ Gone are the days of Bub from Day of the Dead. Gone are the days of the zombie nurse, the fat guy, and the Hare Krishna from Dawn of the Dead. Gone are the half-dogs and headless zombies from Return of the Living Dead. Most importantly, gone is a fun but serious dissection of societal woes and man’s modern day pitfalls. IInstead we’re now being fed a pile of ghastly super-hero zombies, that shriek like space aliens, set inside a hyper-realized video game construct. It’s a sad state of affairs to be sure. One might even say that the zombie genre has jumped the shark, or in this case the albino zombie tiger.
Do you have faith in M. Night Shyamalan to deliver a good movie? Recent returns would suggest that he's still got the touch. The Visit, Split, and Old suggest that his over-indulgent tendencies may be behind him. And if you watch the trailer for Knock at the Cabin, I think you'll find yourself convinced that he's got something special coming.
It’s a Vampire all-star show! A who’s who of Hollywood vampires just showed up as the council in the most...
