While we’re still here waiting patiently for the release of Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, his latest thriller Knock Knock has already been picked up by Lionsgate, who hopes to release the film sometime later this year—what are the chances we see Knock Knock before The Green Inferno? We now have the international trailer for his latest and it’s… something. The unlikely tandem of Roth and Keanu Reeves looks exactly as ridiculous as it sounds, and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s obvious Reeves is having a blast here (I don’t blame him) and Roth appears to be taking a step out of his comfort zone; a solid combination, that’s for sure.
While Roth is mostly known for his taste in blood-splattered visuals and gory tales, he turns his attention towards the home invasion variety with Knock Knock, allowing tension and psychological warfare do all the work. Its premiere out of Sundance was met with mixed reviews, but from what we sere here it looks like a nasty bit of fun!
Evan Webber is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Of course he did. Things are going so well, Evan doesn’t even mind spending Father’s Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend. And then there’s a knock on the door. The two young women standing on Evan’s doorstep are where Evan’s dream takes a nightmarish turn.
The film stars Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ana De Armas, Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand, and Colleen Camp.
