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.

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.

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

As provocative as it is polarizing and sickly perverse, the film stirs the pot with its portrait of marital malaise and Millennial entitlement.

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.

The morality here is biblical but also blackly comical; it demands punishment without mercy for the infractions of faithlessness and lust.

An erotic home-invasion thriller, which -- despite its inconsistencies and lack of depth -- is an enjoyable enough romp.

"Director Eli Roth's "Knock Knock," a remake of the 1977 exploitation picture "Death Game," sometimes plays more like a comedy than like the grungy thriller that inspired it, but that's often all to the good."
October 8, 2015
"Knock Knock" ends on a not entirely satisfactory note, but delivers a pretty mean genre wallop getting there (with almost zero gore).
October 8, 2015
This is a movie of supreme confidence -- it starts strongly and only gets better in every scene -- a thriller that invites plenty of comparisons to the works by masters of the form: Hitchcock, Polanski, De Palma. It earns these comparisons.
October 8, 2015
While its message is a little simplistic, Knock Knock is shot through with a brilliant, gleefully anarchic dark humor that's equally fun and disturbing.
October 8, 2015
Roth's tale is fairly twisty, as the behavior of the women grows increasingly violent and more outrageous.
October 8, 2015
One of the most entertainingly ludicrous movies of the year.

Maybe Knock Knock is just one long, sick joke, skillfully told by a filmmaker who's always spiked his horror with black humor, just never this effectively.
October 7, 2015
Essentially turns into a (psychological) torture porn version of the great Czech New Wave classic 'Daisies,' in which two young women play anarchists, gleefully laying waste to every facet of restrictive, bourgeois society.

As close as we'll ever get to seeing what it would be like if Alfred Hitchcock directed a Penthouse Forum story.

More than a thriller this is a farse with very dark humor, good level of tension. [Full review in Spanish]
September 11, 2015
Roth's attempt to destroy any expectations we could have from him. [Full review in Spanish]
September 11, 2015
A fun satire of the torture genre, but it never really feels like an Eli Roth movie. [Full review in Spanish]
