Shyamalan has partnered with Canon for a VR experience with you!
2023 is fast approaching and it looks like it will be another amazing year for horror. There are so many exciting movies coming out in the first half, but none are as intriguing as M.Night Shyamalanit is knock on the booth. The mysterious horror thriller hits theaters in February. As such, the film’s marketing machine has really started to rev up with its second trailer release earlier this month. Now, before the new year, Shyamalan has announced a new knock on the booth immersive experience set to debut at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in early 2023.
Shyamalan has teamed up with Canon to create a new VR experience centered around his latest film. The trailer further teases the impending apocalypse at the heart of this intriguing horror story. It looks like you’ll be heading to that now infamous cabin in the woods to make the hard choice of who you will, do, and don’t sacrifice to prevent disaster from occurring. It’s all about trying to survive your unwanted guests. In classic Shyamalan fashion, that’s all we get from this short teaser. However, the film appears to be another unique take on the horror genre from this iconic director.
You never know what you’re going to get with Shyamalan. You could get horror gems like Panels, Divideand Visit or you could get The event or Avatar: The Last Airbender which are horror movies for all the wrong hilarious reasons. That’s half the fun with Shyamalan, but knock on the booth shows a ton of promise. It seems to mix your typical scary cabin in the wood-like setting with other unrelated subgenres like home invasion thrillers and apocalyptic stories for its own unique blend of intriguing horror. Shyamalan has always been known for his crazy twists, and it looks like knock on the booth will be no different. Why do these people have to be sacrificed to save the world, and why does the end of the world happen in the first place? These are the questions the director is sure to answer the only way he knows how.
knock on the booth seems to be Shyamalan’s next box office success after his last film Old woman earned over $90 million worldwide on a budget of just $18 million. Marketing for this horror thriller has been excellent so far and this VR experience is a smart way to get horror fans even more excited about this film. Especially since CES is one of the biggest conventions in the world. CES takes place in Las Vegas from January 5 to 8, 2023 before knock on the booth hits theaters on February 3, 2023. The stars of the film David Bautista, Rupert Grint, Abby Quinn, Ben Aldridge, Nikki Amuka Birdand Jonathan Groff. You can view the knock on the boothThe VR teaser below.
