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 by Eli Roth & José Nicolás Lopez García & Guillermo Amoedo, 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.
The early fall movie season is all about horror movies, as we creep up on Halloween. And fans of Eli Roth are in luck. He not only has Knock, Knock arriving in a few weeks, but The Green Inferno is also coming to theaters this September. This double-whammy marks his first directorial outing since taking the helm on Hostel: Part II way back in 2007. But he's been busy since then, starring in movies such as Inglourious Basterds and producing hit shows like Hemlock Grove for Netflix. But it's Knock, Knock that will firmly reestablish his place as a modern-day master of the domestic thriller.
Ignacia Allamand, Aaron Burns and Colleen Camp co-star in Knock, Knock, which Lionsgate Premiere will release in theaters and On Demand platforms on October 9th. Eli Roth, Nicolás López and Guillermo Amoedo all worked together on Aftershock and The Green Inferno. This latest trailer takes us deeper into their rabbit hole, as an otherwise innocent man pays dearly for his one descretion. The footage promises we're getting a Keanu Reeves that's at the top of his game.
Keanu Reeves is coming off last year's hit action-thriller John Wick, where he starred as the title character. The actor is set to return for the sequel John Wick 2, although it isn't known when filming may begin on the action sequel. He also has a number of projects in various stages of development, such as The Neon Demon, The Bad Batch, The Panopticon and the long-awaited Bill & Ted 3.
We don't yet have a theater count for Knock, Knock, but it will have quite a bit of competition. The thriller is squaring off against Warner Bros.' Pan, Relativity Media's Masterminds and Sony's Steve Jobs. Do you think Knock, Knock has what it takes to be one of this Halloween's destination fright flicks? Or will it slowly fade into obscurity, becoming a quite cult classic? Let us know what you think after checking out the new trailer and poster.
