Knock Knock (2015) Review:

Eli Roth’s take on the home invasion genre is a stressful one, one that strikes the “feel bad for the victim” cord in the very same way than other recent releases such as Cheap Thrills or The Gift.

The fact that the invaders are two beautiful and seemingly innocent young girls is the novelty of the movie which, aside from that, feels like yet another repetition of the other movies cited above. Yet, the way these girls will torment the main character is disturbing enough not to be forgotten easily.

The scenario is quite clever and once the trap that these two ladies set closes on the victim, it becomes clear that he has no way of escaping whatsoever. Knock Knock really makes you identify with the main character (Keanu Reeves) and wonder whether his actions would have been yours too. Even better, it turned out that I would have reacted similarly most of the time (aside from sleeping with the girl indeed *my wife will read that*), making the movie unsettling by how realistic it is.

I read a number of reviews that criticize the movie for putting the audience into a bad mood. Certainly, Knock Knock is not a feel-good movie, the complete opposite actually, but so are The Shining and The Mist, yet they are both masterpieces. I’m not saying Knock Knock is a masterpiece, and certain things such as the lack of a proper conclusion make me wonder if it is a great movie at all, but it does an excellent job at immersing the audience and kept me on edge for the 90 minutes. In the end, I came out of the theatre exhausted, by tension and the horrible feeling that this movie might give to young girls the idea to do this to actual people.

A great recommendation to anyone into the home invasion and/or game-oriented movies.
