The first trailer for Knock at the Cabin, the upcoming movie from M. Night Shyamalan, is finally here. The clip, which you can watch above, depicts a spooky, suspenseful nightmare home invasion for a vacationing family.
Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge star as two fathers named Andrew and Eric who take their young daughter Wen, played by Kristen Cui, on vacation to a secluded cabin in the woods. While she is there, Wen sees a mysterious man walking through the trees, then there is a terrifying loud knocking on the cabin door. To Andrew and Eric’s horror, the intruders are armed with some nasty-looking weapons. When the strangers break in, they tie Andrew and Eric to chairs, and Dave Bautista’s character warns them that they must make a terrible decision to save the world from the apocalypse.
“A week ended [Knock at the Cabin] such complex performances this week. Very dark and emotional movie,” Shyamalan said of the film in April. “One take shook me up so much that I had to walk away to recover. I hope you guys feel it too when you see it.”
