The Twist! ‘Knock at the Cabin’ Gets Unexpected Streaming Date



Averaging about six weeks from screen to streamer, movies are finding a new template for the lifespan of a film. For instance, the ice has barely melted in your soda from your theatrical viewing of Cocaine Bear and now you can rent it on VOD only a few weeks later. It’s insane!

That doesn’t even include streamers such as Peacock and Paramount+ who offer their studio-owned properties to subscribers at no added cost just a few weeks after the cinema premiere. It’s a new age!

The recent surprise is M. Night Shyamalan’s latest mystery Knock at the Cabin which opened theatrically on February 3. The movie was available on VOD just three weeks later. NBC Universal sent out an announcement today that the movie, starring Dave Bautista, will stream on Peacock starting March 24.

The film will also be available to own digitally March 24, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD May 9.

But, if you have Peacock enjoy the show for free with the price of your subscription which is about the same as renting the movie online— not sponsored, not affiliated!

Besides Bautista, the movie stars Tony Award® winner Jonathan Groff (Hamilton), Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth, Fleabag), BAFTA nominee Nikki Amuka-Bird (NW), newcomer Kristen Cui, Abby Quinn (Little Women, Landline) and Rupert Grint (Servant, Harry Potter franchise).

While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.

‘Scream 7’ Director Christopher Landon Responds to Barrera‘s Firing: “Stop Yelling”



In news that rocked the horror movie world this afternoon — the firing of lead actress Melissa Barrera from Scream 7 — the director of that film, Christopher Landon, has responded to the announcement in the form of a since removed social media post.

According to Deadline, Spyglass Entertainment also released a statement regarding the termination putting it in no uncertain terms:

“We have zero tolerance for antisemitism or the incitement of hate in any form, including false references to genocide, ethnic cleansing, Holocaust distortion or anything that flagrantly crosses the line into hate speech.”

Barrera was fired from the upcoming slasher today after she dropped several posts that appeared to support Palestine and were therefore perceived as anti-Semitic. Many commentators on iHorror’s social pages have criticized her termination as a violation of free speech. Others have said she was wrong to post what she did but didn’t deserve to get fired over it.

The question now is how the franchise will move forward. Barrera had essentially become the final girl of the franchise as its original protagonist Neve Campbell gradually seceded her role.

Sequels & Remakes Will Dominate Horror Cinema in 2024



I hope you loved the original horror movies that came out in 2023 because 2024 looks like it’s going to be filled with many sequels and remakes.

Of the original 2023 fare, we got M3GAN, When Evil Lurks, Cobweb, Thanksgiving, Totally Killer, and Last Voyage of the Demeter (technically a prequel?). Sequels included Exorcist Believer, Evil Dead Rise, Scream VI, and Insidious: The Red Door. Not a bad mix, right?

But 2024 already looks like sequels and remakes are going to be the dominant theme, at least according to the Facebook page What to Watch. They posted a list of horror movies they see as coming out in 2024 –some confirmed, some not. Although the list is a little flawed as some of the movies aren’t even listed on IMDb yet (Arachnophobia remake) it is still an encouraging omen of what’s ahead.

They also listed mock-up movie posters, but even though they are fake, we can appreciate the artist’s concepts nonetheless.

Below are the films they list and their respective posters. We only included movies that are actually listed on IMDb, and we added The Strangers.

Keep in mind what COVID didn’t push back in production, the actors’ and writers’ strike did. So expect release dates to change, maybe even into 2025. Note that the phony Scream 7 one-sheet says 2025, but the official IMDb page says 2024.

Scream 7

The Strangers Chapter 1

Final Destination 6

Beetlejuice 2

The Crow

The Conjuring Last Rites

Smile 2

Tobin Bell & Director of ‘Saw’ Movies Make Supernatural Music Together in ‘Cello’



Here is something we weren’t expecting today, a trailer for a new supernatural horror movie starring Tobin Bell and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, Spiral). It’s called The Cello, and it also stars Jeremy Irons.

The story follows accomplished Saudi cellist Nasser (Samer Ismail) who, “has aspirations for greatness, though he feels like he’s held back by the old, dilapidated instrument he’s forced to play. When Nasser is offered the chance to take possession of a gorgeous red cello by a mysterious shop owner (Tobin Bell), he finds new inspiration both for his playing and for his composing. What Nasser doesn’t realize is that this cello has a nefarious past. As he prepares for an important audition with a prominent philharmonic, that past shows itself in the form of an ancient conductor (Jeremy Irons) and the suffering and death of those close to him. Nasser must now decide if achieving his dreams is worth the horror that comes with playing such a perfect instrument.”

Take a look below and as always, tell us what you think.

The film will open in America theatrically on December 8.
