M. Night Shyamalan Returned to South Jersey to Film "Knock at the Cabin"

(BURLINGTON COUNTY, NJ) -- M. Night Shyamalan returned to South Jersey to film his upcoming apocalyptic horror film Knock at the Cabin, which just wrapped. The film marks the 15th feature film produced and directed by Shyamalan, with Jarin Blaschke as cinematographer. Produced by Binding Edge Pictures and Universal Pictures, Knock at the Cabin will be released by Universal on February 3, 2023. The principal photography was done in Burlington County.

Knock at the Cabin stars Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter film series) and Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old), alongside Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth) and Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter). Much of the movie was filmed on location in Tabernacle, and at the Evergreen Dairy Bar in Southampton. 

Shyamalan is best known for his supernatural and psychological thrillers such as The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs. Although most of his films are set in and around the Philadelphia area, Shyamalan has filmed in the Garden State on two other occasions. The Village was partially filmed in Pedricktown (Oldmans Township) in 2004. In 2021, Shyamalan directed scenes for Season 3 of the Apple TV+ television series Servant in Ocean City. 

“New Jersey’s film tax credit program has been highly successful in attracting marquee productions and A-List directors to the state,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “We are delighted to welcome M. Night Shyamalan back to New Jersey for his latest project.” 

The New Jersey Film and Digital Media Tax Credit Program, enacted in 2018, has proven to be hugely successful. High-profile productions recently attracted to the state include Focus Features’ Armageddon Time starring Anthony Hopkins, Oscar Isaac and Anne Hathaway,

Netflix’s The Perfect Find with Gabrielle Union, Yale Entertainment’s The Kill Room featuring Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman, NBCUniveral’s limited dramedy series The Best Man currently filming in North Jersey, and the upcoming AMC six-part series Isle of the Dead, set to begin filming this summer. 

“The unprecedented amount of production we’ve enjoyed during the last few years has extended to every region of the state,” said Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “South Jersey is hosting a number of studio and independent features this year, filming at many beautiful locations that were never previously used in motion pictures and television programs. We are very excited about that.” 

The New Jersey Motion Picture & Television Commission , which falls under the New Jersey Department of State’s Business Action Center, is staffed by industry professionals and serves as a resource for production companies. The Commission promotes film and television production in New Jersey.
