When a devoted husband and father is left home alone for the weekend, two stranded young women unexpectedly knock on his door for help. What starts out as a kind gesture results in a dangerous seduction and a deadly game of cat and mouse. A sexy new thriller from director Eli Roth and written for the screen by Eli Roth & Nicolás López & Guillermo Amoedo and story by Anthony Overman and Michael Ronald, KNOCK KNOCK stars Keanu Reeves as the family man who falls into temptation and Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas as the seductresses who wreak havoc upon his life, turning a married man's dark fantasy into his worst nightmare.Written by
It's predictable that everyone will love to hate this: if not for Reeves it would go straight to video, and I saw it in a cinema before apparently it had been granted a press showing - no mainstream reviews were available. It's exploitation crap, of course - and people were giggling at the end in the cinema where I saw it, where the tone does wobble - indeed, one man stood up and announced, "That's the worst film I've ever seen". BUT. Reeves actually gives a strong, natural performance, and Lorenza Izzo has an intensity that makes her a name to watch. Above all, the film contains a few genuine and uncomfortable truths about male sexuality, and I suspect that alone will guarantee it an afterlife.
