There’s a host of exciting new movie titles now available to stream via Showmax, from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan to the lunacy of Nicolas Cage.

Knock at the Cabin

Knock at the Cabin, the latest thriller from Oscar nominee M. Night Shyamalan, follows a young girl and her parents as they are taken hostage by four armed strangers at a remote holiday cabin. The strangers demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.

The film stars Dave Bautista, Grammy winner and Emmy nominee Jonathan Groff, Queerty Award nominee Ben Aldridge, Nigerian-born BAFTA nominee Nikki Amuka-Bird, People’s Choice winner Rupert Grint, and newcomer Kristen Cui. It is based on the bestselling novel The Cabin at the End of the World by Bram Stoker Award winner Paul Tremblay.

Knock at the Cabin was a #1 box office hit in the USA and was nominated for Best Horror Film at this year’s Hollywood Critics’ Association Midseason Awards.

Empire Magazine says, “A harrowing, economical thriller that will sit with you for days, this is Shyamalan’s best film in years, and a calling card for Bautista in his strongest performance yet.”


Renfield is a new comedy-horror film starring Emmy nominee Nicholas Hoult as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula, played by Oscar winner Nicolas Cage.

After centuries of servitude, forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness… if he can just figure out how to end his codependency.

Based on a story by The Walking Dead and Invincible creator Robert Kirkman, Renfield also stars Emmy nominee Awkwafina, Emmy winners Ben Schwartz and Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Critics Choice nominee Brandon Scott Jones.

The New York Times says, “Count Dracula has been dead for so long and gone through so many iterations—exotic, satanic, romantic—that it’s almost surprising there’s any juice left in the thirsty old boy. Yet here he is again, resurrected by a glorious, vamping Nicolas Cage, swinging a cape, baring his fangs and stealing his every scene.”

80 for Brady

80 for Brady is a comedy about four lifelong best friends who embark on a wild trip to the 2017 Super Bowl to meet their hero, Tom Brady. Inspired by a true story, the film stars Oscar winners Sally Field, Rita Moreno, and Jane Fonda, along with Fonda’s longtime co-star, Lily Tomlin.

Produced by Brady himself, the film also features a star-studded supporting cast, including Emmy winners Billy Porter, Rob Corddry, and Glynn Turman, as well as Emmy nominees Harry Hamlin and Food Network celebrity host Guy Fieri.

Billy Porter, Rob Corddry, Glynn Turman, Harry Hamlin, and Guy Fieri says, “It’s pure joy to see these women we have loved and grown with over the decades. They still give their considerable best to make us laugh, dream of our own adventures, and wish they could be around for another two centuries.”

Bank of Dave

Bank of Dave is a true-life story about Dave Fishwick, a working-class van salesman from Lancashire who wanted to set up a small community bank in his hometown of Burnley. But Dave faced an uphill battle against London’s elitist finance authorities, who hadn’t granted a new bank license in over 150 years.

Rory Kinnear stars as Dave, with Joel Fry, Phoebe Dynevor, and Hugh Bonneville in supporting roles. The film also features a cameo from the band Def Leppard.

Bank of Dave has an 85% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, where critics have praised its feel-good tone and heartwarming message.

Next Exit

Next Exit, the debut feature from BAFTA Scotland Award-winning producer Mali Elfman, follows two strangers, Rose and Teddy, as they race to join a contentious study that claims to have found proof of life after death. Rose is haunted by a ghostly presence, while Teddy is forced to confront his past. As they humorously quarrel their way across the country, they must reckon with what is really driving each of them towards the afterlife.

Winner of Best Cinematography at the Tribeca Film Festival, Next Exit has an 80% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Collider calling it, “A spectacular piece of blended genre storytelling, filled to the brim with life.”

The cast includes Katie Parker (Alt, Doctor Sleep, The Haunting of Hill House), Rahul Kohli (iZombie, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass), Tongayi Chirisa (Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, iZombie, Tanyaradzwa), Rose Mciver (iZombie, Ghosts), and Karen Gillan (Marvel’s Nebula, Doctor Who’s Amy Pond), as the maverick scientist behind the Life Beyond project.

The Good House

Hildy Good is a proud, resilient woman with a dark secret: she’s an alcoholic. Based on Ann Leary’s bestselling novel, The Good House is a portrait of a woman who must learn to ask for help in order to change her life.

Sigourney Weaver and Kevin Kline were nominated for Best Screen Couple at the Women Film Critics Circle Awards for their lead performances. The film also features Emmy nominees Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, and Beverly D’Angelo, as well as Screen Actors Guild Award winner David Rasche.

As The Hollywood Reporter says, “In the film’s sharp comic observations and especially its two fine leads, something real and messy sparks to life.”
