M. Night Shyamalan has been keeping audiences on the edge of their seats for years. Knock at the Cabin is his latest thriller

The story revolves around a group of four strangers (played by Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Abby Quinn)  who show up to a remote cabin in the woods where a young family (Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge and Kristen Cui) is enjoying a vacation. The strangers inform the family that a sacrifice is needed to save the world, and what comes from that is pure terror. 

The movie is Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 68% score from critics and a 73% score from audience members. What to Watch writer Jason Best called the movie a “tense and ambiguous thriller” in his review.
