Is that’s time of year again when those lucky enough to be at the Sundance Film Festival are getting to see the movies we will all more than likely be raving about months from now. One of those films could be Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, and we have the first teaser trailer for the movie right here (via Roth’s Facebook page).
Here’s the official synopsis for the movie which recently premiered at Sundance to mixed reviews:
“Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Of course he did. Things are going so well, Evan doesn’t even mind spending Father’s Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend. And then there’s a knock on the door. The two young women standing on Evan’s doorstep are where Evan’s dream takes a nightmarish turn. Given co-writer/director Eli Roth’s well-deserved reputation for creating cinematic discomfort, it should come as no surprise what happens next: Things get weird, and then dark, and then much, much, much darker. But this is no splatter film, so Roth keeps the horror nice and psychological as Evan’s life—and house—get ripped apart, piece by beautiful piece.”
It’s an interesting premise, and may make you think twice about opening the door to strangers in future! In the movie, little know actresses Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas play the two girls who torment Evan.
Another of Eli Roth’s films (cannibal horror, Green Inferno) has been delayed for some time now, but he revealed in an interview this past weekend that they are hoping for it to be released at last in August.
