M. Night Shyamalan has caused quite a stir with his films over the past 25 years. Many love them, others hate them, but there was always plenty to talk about for both camps. Either way, he’s earned a reputation as a mindfuck master over the years – even if the twists and turns and the way to get there mostly don’t come close to the class of his first big hit “The Sixth Sense”. The fact that the director, who most recently directed Split, Glass and the aforementioned Old, still has half of Hollywood at his feet when it comes to casting his next work is evident in the cast of Knock At The cabin”.
