Plot
Knock Knock is a straight man’s wildest wet dream, that is, before it turns into his worst nightmare. One could say this script was written for them. Gay men and straight women will probably not relate with Keanu Reeves’ character the same way. He’s a pretty bad husband. It would be easily to spoil this film, but let’s just say he manages to ruin Father’s Day by cheating on his wife.
This is a simple story that evolves the way most thrillers do, with the hero trying to get away from an embarrassing situation. Eli Roth, master of horror, gives us yet another torture film, but this one hits close to home. Reeves makes a fatal mistake and pays the price. The two female antagonists are everything the script needs them to be: they make you horny, and then they scare you.
Whether you think cheating is acceptable or not, if you like old fashioned thriller, then this is for you. Are you kinky? Into BDSM? Fetishism, maybe? If so, you need to watch this. There are no safe words, here. There are no rules. There is nothing good awaiting Keanu Reeves’ character passed the halfway mark. Knock Knock unravels the way classic thrillers do, but it’s its own thing.
