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

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller. It’s called “Knock At The Cabin” and features Dave Bautista as Leonard, a man whose shared visions with three other people have convinced him to descend upon a cabin in the woods.

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. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, a film called “Knock At The Cabin.” This one stars Dave Bautista as the leader of a group of people who believe the key to stopping the apocalypse is to force a family staying at their forest cabin to make an unknown horrible decision. The trailer wisely keeps this decision from us but we know it involves the couple’s little girl. It looks like a small scale film like the ones Shyamalan has crafted his recent comeback upon. (The underwhelming “Glass” notwithstanding.”). Bautista, an excellent comic actor, looks to up the ante as the creepy but somehow sympathetic antagonist.
