Knock at the Cabin (out Feb 2) sees writer-director M. Night Shyamalan take a big swing… and miss completely. He deserves credit for taking chances but, as he has done with several recent films, he’s struggling to create realistic characters, dialogue and reactions. The “news reports” we see in this movie are laughably bad. It’s the tale of a family on holidays in a remote forest who are visited by 4 unconvincing strangers on a world-changing mission. Grade: C-.
