It looks like Eli Roth’s return to horror with The Green Inferno was only him warming up because word is coming in that he already has his eyes set on his next horror venture with a little film entitled Knock Knock. According to The Wrap, Roth will direct from an original screenplay he co-wrote with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo—his co-writers from Aftershock. This is huge news for the horror community because Roth’s in-your-face vision and storytelling has been sorely missed in the genre since he took a six-year long hiatus between Hostel: Part II and The Green Inferno.
Eli Roth jumping behind the camera once again is some exciting stuff. He’s one of the few true horror directors out there who only has one thing in mind, and that is to make us squirm as much as possible. And sometimes that’s all a horror movie needs to be, and he’s one of the best at it. Whether you find yourself a fan of his films or not, there’s no denying that he has left one hell of a thumbprint on the genre over the years. And hopefully The Green Inferno and Knock Knock are just the beginning of many more terrifying stories told from the twisted mind of Eli Roth.
Not a whole lot is known about the film just yet, but it’s certainly giving off the home invasion vibe that has been so very popular as of late. Here’s what it’s about:
Knock Knock follows two young girls who show up unexpectedly at the home of a married man where they seduce him and wreak havoc on his perfect life.
Even though we’ve got quite a while before we start seeing any goods from Knock Knock, we at least have The Green Inferno to set our sights on because Open Road Films recently picked it up for a September release!
