Knock Knock tries its hardest to freak us out but ultimately doesn't quite go far enough.
May 7, 2019
Roth modernises 1977's Death Game, giving the latest generation a home invasion film with plenty of sharp teeth and even one sassy, satirical tongue.
August 24, 2018
Despite the lack of gore for horror hounds are used to from Roth's previous work; there is no doubt a maturing happening with the projects he attaches himself to. Knock Knock delivers the sexy-psycho thriller it intends.
December 3, 2017
Up until this point, Eli Roth's films have been synonymous with gore and torture, which makes it all the more surprising that Knock Knock is now his best film and contains little to none
November 5, 2017
As provocative as it is polarizing and sickly perverse, the film stirs the pot with its portrait of marital malaise and Millennial entitlement.
October 8, 2016's ultimately impossible not to wonder what drew Reeves to such misguided, puerile material.
April 6, 2016
Although Keanu Reeves has never been noted for his subtlety as a thespian, his performance as a captive husband in Knock Knock could easily be bettered by a stationary object like a chair.
April 5, 2016
The movie sits atop three characters that neither Reeves, de Armas nor Lizzo can give enough personality or strength, making for laughable, cartoonish moments. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 4, 2016
Intriguing spin on home-invasion thriller ... Slickly produced, energetically played, especially by Reeves as the good husband who, when home alone, falls prey to kinky temptations.
January 6, 2016
Unlike most of his previous films, Eli Roth subtly goes for the jugular with Knock Knock, building to a finale brimming with surreal tension and a wickedly dark sense of humor that left me both cringing and laughing.
November 19, 2015
Another sub-par effort from director Eli Roth, who finally breaks out of his xenophobia, but sadly for a pretty abysmal thriller.
November 9, 2015
Knock Knock, which is about two women wreaking havoc on a married man, aspires to be titillating. But more than anything, both persistently, persuasively angle to make you angry.
November 6, 2015
It's ultimately more interested in being lurid than provocative.
November 4, 2015
The morality here is biblical but also blackly comical; it demands punishment without mercy for the infractions of faithlessness and lust.
October 22, 2015
An erotic home-invasion thriller, which -- despite its inconsistencies and lack of depth -- is an enjoyable enough romp.
October 20, 2015
The characters aren't really characters -- they're archetypes -- and the movie plays as a soft core lark rather than more substantial entertainment.
October 15, 2015
Often feels like a tongue-in-cheek episode of Red Shoe Diaries.
October 11, 2015
Knock Knock is a midnight movie that never comes to fruition, wasting a stellar concept and cast on forced B-movie antics that are far too unfunny for Roth's talents.
October 11, 2015
The characters are driven by convenience, not behavior, and their actions seem like they've been manhandled into place to make the plot work.
October 10, 2015
more interested in drippy punchlines than a point
