This week on End Credits, we’re back at the end of the world. Again. Our tour guide is M. Night Shyamalan, a man with many hits and many misses and not much in between. So is Knock at the Cabin one of the hits or is one of the misses? We will make that determination, and we will also talk about other entries from the Shyamalan canon that definitely qualify as hits.
This Wednesday, February 8, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Night Carte. M. Night Shyamalan has been making movies for nearly 30 years, and it’s hard to think of many filmmakers who’ve experienced both the highest highs and the lowest lows of box office success. Before digging into the latest Shyamalan joint, we will look at our favourite moments from the director’s previous efforts; from his meditations on faith to his ghost stories and his recent efforts about a mysterious man with many personalities.
REVIEW: Knock at the Cabin (2023). Imagine you’re enjoying a nice vacation with your family at a cabin in the woods and then somebody knocks at the door. Four strangers tell you the apocalypse is here, and the only way to stop it is that you, or another family member, has to die. What would you do? Based on a novel with the same name and premise, M. Night Shyamalan paints a moral conundrum where everything may not be as it seems. Or maybe it is. Dave Bautista leads a talent ensemble, but can they make you believe it’s the end of the world?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
