Dog’s Movie House: “Knock At The Cabin” Elevated By An Outstanding Performance From Dave Bautista!

The Trailer Dog Park: “Knock At The Cabin” Shows M Night Shyamalan At His Suspenseful Best!”

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another edition of the Trailer Dog Park. Today we get a look at M.

(The underwhelming “Glass” notwithstanding.”). Bautista, an excellent comic actor, looks to up the ante as the creepy but somehow sympathetic antagonist. Check out the trailer below and feel free to comment either here or on my Facebook Page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
