    4 stars is high but for two reasons, 1: Keanu's acting is by far his best in many years. 2: Eli Roth manages to get humor in the one place I least expected it, the very end, and it works, or at least I was laughing. The film itself is okay, not bad, not great. The two female baddies are unexpectedly hot, especially the spanish gal(that accent) and equally scary when you don't know what they will do next. Two angry "teenage" girls with all the power and control and no one home or nearby for days? No thanks. From the moment the girls take over it gets pretty suspenseful and equally uncomfortable. I kinda felt helpless myself as I wondered "what would I do"?? The cinematography isn't very flashy or stylish but it doesn't really need to be. There is one sequence in the beggining with a nice long tracking shot showing the beautiful house and family photos on the wall, in the end the exact same shot occurs only this time showing the destruction the chicks left behind. I like the comparison. Keanu's acting is superb. It literally is the best I've seen him act, Eli must have some mind power over him because he rose to the occasion. When he gets hurt(and bad) I really REALLY bought his yelling and screaming. Its not the best role he has ever had, I'm saying he pulled out acting chops I had no idea he had. I believed he was terrified, I believed he was a father and husband. The 2nd and 3rd act, most of his dialogue was something I would have said, or the average person would have said, not really thinking EVERY LITTLE THING through like they do in a movie, but just acting on reflex/instinct. Wow Keanu, wow.

    Enter With Caution!

    Knock Knock is a home invasion thriller / cautionary tale written and directed by Eli Roth. Unlike the violence of his other works, (e.g. Hostel), Knock Knock plays out on a psychological level as a waking nightmare. The setting and cinematography are key to the film's success, and these technical elements are excellent. Aside from a few missteps, the performances work . The film's strength lies in the chemistry between the duo of Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas, who shines. Keanu Reeves has been better, but he has still has some good moments in here. This movie isn't as good as it could have been, as it misses opportunities to explore themes that would've served it well, but it's not as bad as many reviews have stated. There are many things that do work well in Knock Knock! There's no option for 3.5 stars, so Im'm giving it 4. Sometimes it's fun to sit back and watch the insanity, and for that, Knock Knock is a fun 'midnite' movie full of cheap thrills and craziness! There's an audience here for fans of the genre. At the right price, and for the cautionary lessons alone, Knock Knock is recommended!

    Keanu Does it Again

    Keanu Reeves is interesting because having been in Hollywood and movies for so long and consistently showing up year by year in movies I don't think he's considered a top tier talent on the level he was when the Matrix franchise was at its height in popularity. But having said that, in recent years he's made a pretty good living showing up in a variety of genre films and seemingly always improving on the concept that at first the tagging or summery of said film would be eye rolling or immediately passed over. Much like he recently with John Wick. Keanu teams up with a director who knows what their doing in their particular genre, in this instance Eli Roth and then he gives it his best effort throwing himself into the roll preconceived notions be damned. He can't be boxed in. This movie isn't your typical horror film its more thriller and based in tension. It's a psychological thriller, you'll be putting yourself in Keanu's shows and asking yourself if you'd make the same decisions. A tiny, easy to be missed movie, but one you should definitely check out.

    KNOCK KNOCK KEANU REEVES

    Keanu Reeves’ whiny monologue comparing an act of infidelity to “free pizza” is a moment that seems destined for cult canonization in “Knock Knock,” Eli Roth’s glossy and reasonably fun update of Peter Traynor’s 1977 exploitation movie “Death Game.” The original film isn’t credited as the source of the screenplay, but this is, by any reasonable definition, a remake, faithfully preserving most of the first movie’s plot beats while adding better acting, Uber and FaceTime. (One of the stars of “Death Game,” Colleen Camp, has a small role and serves as producer; her co-star Sondra Locke and Traynor get exec producer credits.) Modest commercial results seem possible; “Knock Knock” will probably go down as the better of the two home-invasion films, not least because Reeves makes a better punching bag than Seymour Cassel.

    After all the negative reviews I'd read online I was hesitant to get this, even though I'm a huge Eli Roth fan. Most of the negative comments seemed to be focused on Keanu, as if this was actually happening to him! lol People, he's an actor, playing a role. I can understand why Reeves was attracted to this role. He actually got to do some REAL acting instead of miming the stoic, plastic indestructible "hero" he often gets cast as. A refreshing change for him, I'm sure. Is this the greatest suspense thriller ever filmed? No. Is it worth a look? Absolutely! In fact, for a low budget thriller, you get a lot of bang for your buck!

    Beware of sexy women asking for directions

    Knock Knock is a dark psychosexual thriller from director Eli Roth (Hostel, Hostel II) staring Keanu Reeves. Reeves steps out of his usual action movie comfort zone to portray a loving husband who makes the terrible mistake of helping two lost women who come looking for directions at his front door one stormy night. Things quickly go awry and what follows is a non-stop, violent thrill ride filled with twists, turns and a good dose of dark humor. This is a departure for director Roth who steps away from the horror genre he is best know for to deliver a sleek, fast-paced, gory thriller guaranteed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

    I rented this awhile back cause it had good word of mouth. Figured Keanu Reeves in a home invasion type scenario should be good. I didn't expect what I was gonna watch. SLIGHT SPOILER BELOW The movie overall is good but prepare yourself for the risque/twisted turn it takes. I've seen more messed up movies but this one kinda took me by surprise. Definitely worth the watch, I grabbed it to own when I saw it for $4.99 on blu ray as thats definitely a price I can get behind.

    Not that he was terrible in his role, but rather, it was a poor selection to be cast in this film after the success of John Wick. The story about a husband who, after attempting to play the role of good samaratin, is deceived by a pair of nubile vixens -- who are simply conniving blackmail artists using the power of their sexuality to their full advantage. While interesting a concept, the movie is not only far too predictable from the onset, but seemingly a less polished version of a 70's snuff film. 3 stars

    Nice Thriller

    I am a Keanu Reeves fan so I will buy his movies without reading reviews on them. In this movie his character was different from the others. Normally, somewhere within the story, his character gets this strength from within to prevail over the odds against him. This movie was a serious thriller because I was waiting for the normal type of character to emerge. It kept me wondering all the way to the end. It was a refreshing thriller with a thin line between who was the bad guy. It is a must see movie.

    I really knew next to nothing about this film going in. But I like Keanu and Eli Roth enough to blind buy it for the, something like, 8 dollars I paid for the blu-set. And I'm happy I did. Equal parts pure insanity mixed in with the occasional mild violence and that one scene of nudity that sets up the last half of the film. It reminded me quite a bit of Hard Candy without being a hard re-tread. I'd recommend it to anyone who thought the trailer looked good or that enjoy the genre.

    All I can say - is no "GUY" will want to let any strangers-especially cute girls into there home "EVER" & will NEVER let themselves be "Seduced"! Don't do it!! No screwing around/infidelity forever after this movie for any "Faithful" person. A greatly acted - minimal special effects movie that builds suspense & makes one think about after it's over. A bit disturbing to say the least. A real home-wrecker-no pun intended. Enjoy with the one You LOVE....

    Bought this for the twofer offer, Blu Ray and Digital for $6 but to my surprise the Digital offer had expired 6 months earlier. The packaging said nothing of the sort! I liked the movie. And the blonde female is about to hit big, she has a co starring part in the "new" Blade Runner coming out at the end of the year with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. Be forewarned there's some nudity involved in the storyline.

    This movie was ok. Story's about an aritect who stays home to work instead of going with his family to the beach for the weekend ends up making a huge mistake with two girls and is now paying for it in the worst way. This movie was a blind purchase for me it was enjoyable but definitely not movie of the year. Great acting all around by the cast. Definitely don't watch this movie with kids because there is nudity.

    This is not a bad movie, it was okay. I really like Keanu Reeves in the movies and this movie was the first I saw were i was hoping for some more action from him. But he really didn't do anything to Potray his character the way I thought he should. But the plot was a good one and I thought the story was a good one. It was good enough to keep me interested for the whole thing, over all its a decent movie.

    I got this movie, not gonna lie, because I saw all of the Fandango movie clips on YouTube and kinda wanted to see a world where Keanu was getting beat into submission instead of the other way around (especially that one gratuitous scene). I regrettably paid full price for this, I wouldn't even recommend this on sale, only get it if you like Keanu's acting

    its Not your typical torture flick that Eli Roth is known for - theres a nice twist in the sense the Baddies are women and the victim is a Dad Bod average joe who "wrong place at the wrong time". it is a remake of a much older film that a majority of Us probably didnt know existed; I think its well done and I dont want to spoil anything. def worth a watch in my movie geek opinion

    Knock Knock isn't the type of film that you'd expect Eli Roth to make. It isn't bad at all. But it isn't very good either. It just...is. Roth's intentions are pure. The cast is great. The script is so-so. You'll probably find yourself infuriated throughout the film but that's the point. The problem is that it drags on and feels kind of long even though it's a fairly short film.

    I am a big Keanu Reeves fan and that is why I purchased this movie! I will admit it is not one of his best movies! But it's a movie about being faithful or not being faithful when an offer comes along that seems to good to be true! Also How far would a woman go to prove appoint? Keeps u interested and if u are a Keanu fan like me give it a look! This movie is really not for chilren!

    This movie is great. It is a little over the top towards the end of the film however I enjoyed this movie a lot. If you're a fan of thrillers this movie is certainly worth a watch. I picked it up in the bargain bin for $5. It does a great job at demonstrating how people are pushed to their limits and what things will simply destroy a family. Give it a shot!
