It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of Eli Roth and his crappy movies. He’s got another one coming out soon called Knock Knock, and this seriously might just be Keanu Reeves’ worst movie. Now, I’m a huge fan of Reeves, and I’ve enjoyed a lot of the films that he’s starred in, but Knock Knock is not one of them. The performance he gives is embarrassingly bad. For some reason, though, he decided to star in the film. You get a taste of that bad acting in the trailer.
I assume there’s some kind of audience out there for a movie like this, it just wasn’t for me. There’s no Eli Roth film that is for me, actually. You can read my review for the movie right here. I guess if you’re up for some laughs watching Reeves be tortured by two young girls, then maybe you’ll enjoy it.
We’ve got a new extended TV spot that you can check out below. But first, here’s the synopsis:
Evan Webber (Reeves) 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 (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) standing on Evan's doorstep are where Evan's dream takes a nightmarish turn. Things get weird, and then dark, and then much, much, much darker. Evan's life—and house—get ripped apart, piece by beautiful piece.
The movie hits theaters on October 9th if you’re interested in seeing it.
