M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, Knock at the Cabin, is heading home, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced March 17.
The film, about a vacationing girl and her parents who are taken hostage by armed strangers who demand that the family make a choice to avert the apocalypse, will be released through digital retailers such as Vudu, Redbox On Demand and Prime Video, as well as on the Peacock streaming service, on March 24.
A DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release will follow on May 9.
With domestic theatrical earnings of less than $36 million, Knock at the Cabin is one of director Shyamalan’s lowest-grossing films.
The home releases, both digital and disc, feature more than 40 minutes of bonus content, including exclusive deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Based on the book The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay, Knock at the Cabin follows a tight-knit family who are taken hostage by four armed strangers while vacationing at a remote cabin. The visitors, led by Dave Bautista, demand that the young girl and her parents make an unthinkable choice: to save their family or save humanity.
The film stars Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Abby Quinn, Rupert Grint, and Kristen Cui in her feature film debut.
Bonus features include an extended cut of the TV infomercial from the film that features an appearance by Shyamalan; “Choosing Wisely: Behind the Scenes of Knock at the Cabin,” an examination of what drew Shyamalan to adapt the story, and how the relationships between characters were unlike any this ensemble cast had ever played before; “Tools of the Apocalypse,” an exploration of the creation of some of the film’s most terrifying props; “Drawing a Picture,” a documentary on how Shyamalan envisions his shots in advance of turning on the camera through his extensive use of storyboards; and “Kristen Cui Shines a Light,” a closer look at the young actress and her dynamic performance as Wen in her film debut.
