For the promotion of his new thriller Knock on the Door, M. Night Shyamalan stopped in Rome. We met him by putting him in front of the same questions posed to him 6 years earlier, to understand how different his answers would have been.
A thriller by M. Night Shyamalan it’s not just any thriller. It is a thriller by a 52-year-old American director of Indian origin who carries the burden of having made a masterpiece in 1999 entitled The sixth sense, when he was 29. From that moment on, the public’s expectations towards him were very high. Sometimes he has been able to satisfy them, sometimes his specialty has turned against him. The desire to tell stories full of tension, on the verge of the paranormal and with a twist at all costs, has in some cases proved to be a trap. In general what he saved Shyamalan it was his knack for building suspense and now that he’s more mature, he’s able to juggle with more awareness of what can work and how it should work.

There’s a Knock on the Door: Plot and Trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Film
Knocking at the door is the story of a little girl and her two parents who are spending a vacation in an isolated house in the woods. Four strangers show up at the door of the hut, with rudimentary weapons in their hands, saying things apparently without sense and that don’t seem at all comforting. After forcing their way in, they ask the family to make an absurd choice, as they believe a sacrifice involving them is the only way to avoid an imminent apocalypse. They are part of the cast Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldrige e Rupert Grint.
