M. Night Shyamalan movies are famous for their twists and turns, but is Knock at the Cabin streaming yet? 

We love a movie full of thrills, chills and shrills (check out our streaming guides for fellow freaky flicks like Bones and All, The Menu, Triangle of Sadness and the Scream movies), so this apocalyptic horror film from the man behind The Sixth Sense, Signs and The Village ticks off all the boxes. 

Starring Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Rupert Grint and Ben Aldridge, Knock at the Cabin follows a family whose quaint vacation is cut short when they are taken hostage by four strangers. (Talk about bad travel luck!) But can you watch it at home? Here's all of the Knock at the Cabin streaming intel you need. 

Is 'Knock at the Cabin' streaming?

Alas, in order to see M. Night Shyamalan's newest flick, you're going to need to take a trip to the cineplex. Knock at the Cabin, which premiered on Friday, February 3, is currently only available to watch in theaters, and a streaming release date has not yet been announced.

However, even though we don't know when you'll be able to watch the psychological horror movie from home, we do have a pretty good idea of where: given that Knock at the Cabin is a Universal Pictures release, we can expect it will eventually be available for streaming on the Peacock platform.

That means you will need a Peacock subscription to watch Knock at the Cabin from the comfort of your own couch. Currently, plans include the Premium subscription, an ad-supported option for $4.99 per month, or Premium Plus, a commercial-free experience that also allows you to download and watch content offline, priced at $9.99 a month. 

Is 'Knock at the Cabin' on Netflix?

No, Knock at the Cabin is not currently available to watch on Netflix and it likely won't be anytime soon as the movie's being released by Universal Pictures, which has a deal with Peacock to stream its titles after a 45-day theatrical window. 

'Knock at the Cabin' plot summary:

Based on the book The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay, Knock at the Cabin centers on a married couple, Andrew (Jonathan Groff) and Eric (Ben Aldridge), and their young daughter Wen (Kristen Cui) who have taken off to the woods for a family vacation. 

All is well until a quartet of armed doomsday believers—led by Dave Bautista's Leonard—take the family hostage and demand that they sacrifice one of their own to save humanity from the impending apocalypse.
