Knock Knock tries its hardest to freak us out but ultimately doesn't quite go far enough.
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]
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.
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
October 9, 2015
Even fans of Roth's past work will probably be disappointed by the relative lack of gore in this one, which suggests a mix of horror and thriller but quickly settles into more of the latter.
October 9, 2015
There's satiric potential here, but Eli Roth's sense of humor abandons him when his hero isn't about to get down with the get down.
October 9, 2015
Knock Knock is a pretty flimsy erotic thriller, but thanks to Reeves' oaken obliviousness it's also got a few moments of deliciously trashy fun.
October 9, 2015
Manages to be impossibly conservative while being impossibly sleazy, and that's the way we're supposed to like it, I suppose.
October 9, 2015
As good as Reeves is, the potential for "Knock Knock" is seldom met. Roth would rather play to his tiresome habits instead of challenging himself with a vigorous, malevolent thriller.
October 9, 2015
Alas, the intentions of pure comedy don't last for long, and the movie becomes a fairly routine series of torture scenes and bursts of violence.
October 9, 2015
As a piece of social satire, "Knock Knock" winds up being not just toothless but anticlimactic.
October 9, 2015
All foreplay and no, well, climax.
