Based on Paul Tremblay's award-winning novel published in 2018, The Cabin at the End of the World, the movie centers around a tight-knit family of three — Eric (Jonathan Groff), Andrew (Ben Aldridge), and their young daughter Wen (Kristen Cui) — vacationing at a remote cabin in the middle of the woods.
Their relaxing getaway is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of four strangers, who firmly believe that the world is about to come to an end. Everything and everyone will cease to exist...unless the family willingly decides to sacrifice one of their own. Dave Bautista (Leonard), Rupert Grint (Redmond), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Sabrina), and Abby Quinn (Adriene) play the four home invaders.
