In the mood for a titillating thriller? How about a classic horror movie game of cat and mouse? Netflix has you covered with Knock Knock.
Starring Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, and Ana de Armas, this 2015 flick directed by Eli Roth is actually a remake of the 1977 film Death Game. But of course, the modern version is full of a new set of twists and takes on what inviting terror into one’s home can look like.
Lately, Knock Knock has had a resurgence in popularity with Netflix audiences. Currently, it’s at the number 3 spot on the streaming service’s Top 10 list. The movie may just be the perfect fall thriller, but you’ll have to watch and see for yourself.
In the meantime, let’s take a closer look and see if Knock Knock is just what you’re after in a thriller this November. It very well could be!
What is Knock Knock about?
During a downpour, there’s a knock at the door. A happily married man (played by Keanu Reeves) allows two girls (played by Ana de Armas and Lorenza Izzo) into his house to dry off, get out of the rain, and use the phone. Gradually, however, he realizes their intentions are definitely not innocent.
As they continue to make more and more requests, it becomes even less clear exactly what they’re after. But he senses that it might be him, in one way or another.
Netflix describes the plot as:
"A devoted husband and father on his own for the weekend has his life turned inside out after giving shelter to two young women during a storm."
Put together by award-winning director Eli Roth, the film was originally released by Lionsgate in 2015. Did it live up to its modern day thriller potential? Only one way to find out.
