Knock Knock: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers
After giving us an outstanding thriller with The Gift, OctoArts Films International brings us another Suspense film with Knock Knock.

Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves)  is a good family man and was left all alone in his house while his beautiful wife and kids spent an out-of-town trip for the weekend. He needs to finish his latest architecture project before it reaches its deadline. Later that night while he was working, two girls Genesis (Lorenza Izzo) and Bel (Ana de Armas), knock on Evan's door claiming that their lost and got soaked in the rain. Evan offers some help to dry their clothes, but Bel and Genesis have other plans and took advantage of him; making it a sinful night that Evan cannot resist.

It is not the typical morbid Eli Roth film, but it is still disturbing throughout. The premise is pretty interesting, but it takes the long road to reach the thrilling parts. It provided some humor to the story even we're hoping to get more blood and violence on it instead. The film gets crazier by the minute, but Roth didn't fully explore the psychological horror in it and opted to be repetitive at times. 

Keanu Reeves is an intriguing choice to be the lead star because we are not used to see him get beaten up especially by two ladies. But still, he managed to come up with a convincing performance. We regret that Lorenza Izzo survived The Green Inferno because she made John Wick look like a wuss. She is always in her A-game, and we are definitely in luck to see her with an equally beautiful Ana de Armas. 

Overall, Knock Knock is an average psychological thriller. We just hoped that Eli Roth provided more gore and violence in it since it's already a Rated-R movie. But with a stunning Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas flirting their way into the picture; we have already forgotten our complaints.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 6.5 out of 10 stars
