With writer and director M. Night Shyamalan, whose new mystery-thriller is “Knock at the Cabin,” one never knows what they’ll get. Either greatness like “The Sixth Sense” and” Unbreakable” as well as the Mel Gibson led “Signs,” which paired Gibson with Joaquin Phoenix and Abigail Breslin.

On the disappointment end, he helmed the mediocre dramatic mystery-thriller “The Village” and the disappointing fantasy-mystery “Lady in the Water,” as well as the misfire that was “The Visit” in 2015 wherein fake grandparents was the big twist. He made up for it with the “Unbreakable” trilogy that finished with “Glass” in 2019.

The end in “Knock at the Cabin” is worth the time and effort despite the ludicrous plot twist.

“Knock at the Cabin” is worth a look despite any doldrums that occurred in the storyline. It is worth seeing in theaters.
