Knock At The Cabin author reacts to being kicked out of Shyamalan poster

Author Paul Tremblay reacts to being left out of the poster for upcoming M. Night Shyamalan movie Knock on the hut. The original 2018 novel, The hut at the end of the worldwas written by Tremblay and would win the 2019 Bram Stoker Award for Novel. Even before the novel was published, FilmNation acquired the film rights to the book in April 2018. In 2021, it was announced that Shyamalan would direct the film adaptation of the horror novel, and that it would star Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Ben Aldridge and Jonathan Groff. Knock on the hut follows a family of three vacationing in a remote cabin, only to be taken hostage by a group of strangers who tell them they must sacrifice a family member to avert the apocalypse. The film is slated to hit theaters on February 3, 2023.


Recently on Twitter, Knock on the hut has shared his first poster, and Tremblay points out that he’s missing something. In Twitter posts by Tremblethe author points out that neither his name nor his book appear anywhere on the poster Knock on the hut be a direct film adaptation of The hut at the end of the world. Tremblay goes on to suggest this while The hut at the end of the world will have a film tie-in release on February 7th, the film doesn’t seem to credit its source material at all.

Knock At The Cabin repeats an old trick

The Mysterious Beach in M ​​Night Shyamalan's Old

While Knock on the hut Seems to have separated posters from Tremblay’s original novel, this isn’t the first time a Shyamalan film has minimized its source material. In 2021, Shyamalan released the thriller Olda film adaptation of the graphic novel by Pierre Oscar Lévy and Frédérik Peeters sandcastle. However, Old similarly discards any connection with sandcastleleading many viewers to believe that the film was an original Shyamalan work rather than an adaptation.

Though Lévy and Peeters didn’t comment on their graphic novel’s fairly low acclaim when it came to it Old‘s Marketing, Tremblay is certainly not doing the same. In response to a Twitter user who said they were uncomfortable with Tremblay’s lack of recognition on the poster, Tremblay responded by saying: “no need to worry since they bought the rights and the book is named in the movie.” Tremblay acknowledges that the rights to the adaptation were bought, and that The hut at the end of the world will be credited Knock on the huthe still wants credit where credit is due.

In light of Tremblay’s comments, it will be interesting to see exactly how Knock on the hut sticks to the plot of the source material. It seems likely that Shyamalan’s film will differ significantly from Tremblay’s story. Knock on the hut will be Tremblay’s first film adaptation of his work, and he’s rightly not silent about the fact that audiences know where the film’s story came from. Given that Shyamalan hasn’t given writers much credit in the past for adapting their books into films, Tremblay’s vocal criticism may be key to ensuring that this doesn’t happen again with a Shyamalan film in the future. Although only one poster has been released so far, maybe in the future Knock on the hut Promotional materials will finally give Tremblay the recognition he deserves.
