Knock at the Cabin, a new psychological horror movie is in theaters this Friday, Feb. 3. Here at Hidden Remote, we are super excited to see this one! Not only is this one of our favorite movie genres, but with M. Night Shyamalan you never know what to expect! But is this a movie the whole family can enjoy or is Knock at the Cabin for adults to watch after-hours?
In the movie, we meet a young girl and her parents, who are all vacationing at a remote cabin. Disconnecting and enjoying nature seems like the perfect thing to do, and it is, but not for long. Soon after settling in, four unexpected visitors stop by to demand the family make an “unthinkable choice” in order to stop the upcoming apocalypse. Essentially, one of them must die to save the planet. Will they be able to decide before it’s too late?
M. Night Shyamalan is the director and one of the screenplay writers (along with Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman), so you know there will be plenty of surprises, and a guaranteed twist of an ending.

Why is the Knock at the Cabin movie rated R?
Now, everyone in your family may fans of psychological horrors, but that doesn’t mean all movies in that genre should be seen by a younger audience. Perhaps you allow language or your kid isn’t easily triggered, so you allow PG-13, but R rated movies? It all depends on why they got the rating for.
Knock at the Cabin is rated R for violence and language. Without sharing spoilers, Parents Guide notes that the movie features “peril and mass disasters,” as well as language throughout. However, it doesn’t seem like there will be much (if any at all) gore or sexual content. So, parents, this one is all up to you!
