If you missed seeing M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin in theaters, and you have a Peacock subscription, we have some good news for you.
Shyamalan’s adaptation of Paul Tremblay’s novel The Cabin at the End of the World will be available to stream exclusively on Peacock as of March 24.
In Knock at the Cabin, a couple and their little girl are spending quality family time at (you guessed) a cabin in the woods. When four strangers show up and conduct a home invasion, they have a strange story to tell. According to them, the only way to avoid the end of the world is for a member of the family to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Are the strangers telling the truth, or is this just some kind of sick joke? This being a Shyamalan project, Knock at the Cabin has some surprises under its belt.
Knock at the Cabin and other Shyamalan films will be available on Peacock
Knock at the Cabin stars Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old), Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter) and Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth). It will join other Shyamalan projects that are currently streaming on Peacock, which include The Happening, The Village and what I refer to as one of the best horror movies ever made: The Sixth Sense.
And if you want to take in a double feature, another recently released film is just hit video on demand recently; the crazy, violent and bloody Cocaine Bear can be rented at home for $19.99. Or you can splurge for an extra $5 and buy your very own digital copy.
Cocaine Bear is very loosely based on a true story, wherein a 175-pound black bear in Tennessee ingested a large amount of cocaine that was dropped from a plane by drug smugglers. This bear did not go on a mad killing spree like the one in the film, but it’s a pretty good story anyway.
Cocaine Bear features Keri Russell, Margo Martindale, Jessie Tyler Ferguson and Ray Liotta, and was directed by Elizabeth Banks.
Did you catch Knock at the Cabin or Cocaine Bear in theatres? Are you planning to stream one or both of them? Either way, we want to know what you think, so drop your musings in the comments section.
