Knock At The Cabin Streaming Release Date Revealed
The streaming release date for Knock at the Cabin is coming soon. An adaptation of The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul G. Tremblay, Knock at the Cabin follows one family that is asked to make an impossible choice. With the world set to fall apart around them, unless they choose to kill one of their own, they need to decide if the world is more important than their family.
Knock at the Cabin will be available for streaming on March 24, according to a report by Collider. M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin will officially release on Peacock, the streaming service of NBCUniversal. It lands alongside other recent hits M3GAN and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish.
The Critical And Audience Response To Knock At The Cabin
Knock at the Cabin received much lower box office numbers than some of Shyamalan’s other recent films. Grossing $54.1 million against a $20 million budget, it was still a success but failed to match the $90.2 million that Old earned and the $247 million of Glass. It was also a source of controversy, given that the story strayed so much from Tremblay’s The Cabin at the End of the World.
While Knock at the Cabin started with Shyamalan’s best Rotten Tomatoes score in years, it has since fallen considerably in the eyes of critics and audiences alike. Originally receiving a 72 from Rotten Tomatoes, its ratings have since dropped to 67 with 319 reviews from critics. While still rated Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, that’s a massive change. Audiences, as well, have slowly soured on the project and left a 63% score with over 1,000 reviews.
The diversion from the source material is a major source that critics cite as a reason to offer the film mediocre reviews. Shyamalan takes a psychological horror and turns Knock at the Cabin into an apocalyptic thriller, which completely misses the point of the original project. While critics may consider Knock at the Cabin middling, it remains to be seen if the scores will change after the project comes to Peacock.
