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.
★★★★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 ★★★★★ Caught in one of the weirdest conundrums around. A story that’s either a perfectly time version of a Twightlight Zone episode, or a ten part series on Hulu, but is definitely unsuited for a feature length film. This is the world of M. Night Shyamalan’s 2021 joint, Old.
