Knock on the hut carries a C CinemaScore and a “Fresh” but not “Certified Fresh” score Rotten tomatoes. The consensus on the review aggregator reads, “While it’s often not scary and parts of the story don’t take criticism, Knock on the hut is a thought provoking chiller and top shelf Shyamalan. Patrick Cavanaugh of awarded the film a score of 4 out of 5 in his review. He is writing:

“Knock on the hut delivers audiences with a mind-boggling premise that feels all too real, yet is elevated just enough to allow for some escapism, with its overall narrative structure making it easy to believe in the events and keep us invested until the very end. The intimate nature of the setting and captivating performances from a cohesive ensemble help sell the bizarreness of the concept, and even if the final result irks the audience, those disappointed in the result may only feel those frustrations because you’re so deep in the resolution invested and easy. The experience could have easily meant three disappointments in a row for Shyamalan, but he’s managed to bounce back strong enough by embracing his narrative and directorial strengths that we’ll continue to watch the big swings that keep us on our toes instead from which he rests. his laurels.”
