Critic Reviews for Don't Knock Twice
If it had skipped the clichéd supernatural elements to instead concentrate on the relationship between the two central characters, Don't Knock Twice might have emerged as an interesting film.
The makers of Don't Knock Twice never successfully flesh out their characters as people, leaving viewers to roll their eyes whenever characters open the wrong door.
A warmed-over hash of "Candyman," "Oculus," "Insidious" and a half-dozen other spook-shows.
This is the second film in a row where James has proven himself a talented orchestrator of complex low-budget genre fare ... wringing the most out of a limited budget through moxie and smart casting.
There's no humor, but there are clues as to what this film could've been if it had tried harder to sustain the relationships between its characters. [Full review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Don't Knock Twice
Seeing as Katee Sackhoff was the best part of Don't Knock Twice, it might have worked in the movie's favour if the mother/daughter element was the focus, instead of just the backdrop for some oldhat horror. Creepiest part was when John Wick ate a baby.
Basically a modernized b-horror version of The Witch blended with The Babadook and dashes of Insidious and even Nightmare on Elm St. Great atmosphere and tension but mediocre execution of a formulaic plot that has become all too familiar for the genre. Its moments of true creepiness made it macabre entertainment, but unmemorable for the most part. However, I will give the film credit for its solidly dark ending.
