Right now, details about this promising horror film are scarce. But there is some pretty solid information that has already been revealed to the public, such as its star-studded cast. Here's what we know about Knock at the Cabin right now.
When Is Knock at the Cabin Release Date?
Filming for Knock at the Cabin wrapped up in June 2022 and ever since then, the film has been in post-production status.
The good news is that the movie's release date has been moved earlier than the first date announced. The movie was supposed to get released at the end of February. But after some changes, the release date has been moved two weeks early.
And now, Knock at the Cabin release date will be on February 3, 2023. It will be released in theaters upon its premiere.

What Is Knock at the Cabin Story About?
The premise of Knock at the Cabin is that it is a home invasion that takes place in the middle of an apocalypse. The film's trailer follows Eric (played by Ben Aldridge), Andrew (played by Jonathan Groff), and their daughter Wen (played by Kristen Cui) as they take a break in a cabin. Unfortunately, their vacation is interrupted by Leonard (played by Dave Bautista) and his three friends. The trailer also reveals that Leonard is trying to stop the apocalypse and needs to sacrifice both Andrew and Eric in the process.
This is all we know about the story so far since it is the only information revealed in the trailer. But the film is actually adapted from Paul Tremblay's novel entitled The Cabin at the End of the World.
