Othersode #77: Red Hair-ing / Knock at the Cabin with Samantha Allen

Knock, knock. It’s the Book Squad! Join us and special guest Samantha Allen (author of Patricia Wants to Cuddle) for a chat about Knock at the Cabin. Of course, we also discuss the novel the film is based on, The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay. We talk about the film’s structure, the performances, the weird camera tricks, and of course, the key differences between the book and the movie. Read along for our next Bookpisode on The Spite House by Johnny Compton on March 20, and check out the Daisy Jones and the Six limited series on Amazon Prime for our next Othersode on April 3. Leave us a rating so we can read it on the pod, and send your feedback to thesquad@booksquadgoals.com!
