Can’t you hear that knock…knock…knocking? Three siblings head to the deep, dark woods to assess and sell their late parents’ cabin, only to run afoul of something evil among the trees, in this terrifying Finnish supernatural horror pic, which is bound to make you jump out of your seat. —M.G.
After the long-delayed settling of their parents’ estate, three adult siblings return to their childhood home to manage affairs. But it’s no happy return: decades prior, their parents were believed to be murdered and the youngest sister was found in a cage. Surrounded by ancient forest, and with painful family memories resurfacing, a supernatural force begins to make itself known. Lingering resentments and unspoken traumas between the siblings begin to simmer as darkness falls, leading to a terrifying night where the truth about what happened to their family will be revealed. THE KNOCKING delivers classic ghost story thrills, while turning the haunted house subgenre on its head and offering a different kind of ghost to terrify the family at its core—and audiences along with them. —C.F.
