Long Story Short:
Evan is left alone for the weekend by his loving wife and kids so he can catch up on his work without getting distracted. When two sexy girls knock on his door and claim they are stranded he lets them in so they can wait for their cab. Unfortunately that’s not the only thing on their mind.

Review:
First of all I have to say that I really enjoyed Keanu Reeves in this movie. He went through all kinds of emotions and made me feel sorry for him. The remaining cast kept me entertained as well.

However, what really bugged me was the lack of detail and creativity. None of the characters really seemed to have a motivation or went through any kind of development. The few hints that tried to explain why the two girls were acting the way they did were not only predictable but also seemed like an afterthought the team came up while shooting the movie.

Eli Roth is known to add a few comedy elements in his horror movies, which usually works; but in this particular case I really think he should have kept it a thriller, because it seemed unintentional.

The dialogues were just bad besides one part: Keanu Reeves kind of snaps in one of the scenes and what he says is just hilarious.

There were many plot holes without resolution, and finally the ending was disappointing. Usually when the audience is left wanting more the movie was a success; I was left wanting more because I thought it was finally going somewhere but that’s when it ended.

Knock Knock seems to be based on an intriguing idea that was rushed on screen instead of thinking it through. Keanu Reeves delivers as usual, but the many plot holes, the bad dialogues, the constant switch between thriller and comedy and the disappointing ending makes it nothing more than an average movie.

Rating: 4.5/10
