Knock Knock movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The film is honestly decently entertaining, but is EXTREMELY horrible and infuriating. The bad reviews are reasonable for this frustrating home invasion thriller full of sex and torture.


After hearing the sound of knocking at his door, Evan, a dedicated father and husband, opens his home to help two young women standing out wet in the rain. However, they shortly begin to seduce him, destroy his home and ruin his life.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Directed by Eli Roth, Knock Knock is nothing other than a horrible home invasion story of torture and vandalism. It’s enough to enrage all audiences and we demand a revenge sequel immediately! Keanu Reeves stars in the film as a hopeless victim of infuriating torture to leave you unsatisfied and angry at an extreme level. But what is good about the movie?

The fact that it’s engaging enough to drag you out and supply you with horrible feelings is indeed fairly powerful, but Knock Knock would only be likeable if justice was included. Seriously, a sequel of justice and revenge is needed for the audiences without a single question. So unless you’re feeling ready to spend 98 minutes watching an innocent man’s life being ruined, simply avoid this one.

Although the power of this movie is appreciable, it’s really unfair power. Knock Knock isn’t at all a pleasurable movie, and due to the sympathy we’ll have for the target of the torment, it’s best left avoided for audiences entering the story already feeling angry.
