What do you think the girls are forcing Keanu to listen to while torturing him tied to the chair? William Shatner perhaps?

Soundbytes of him delivering his lines from Bram Stoker's Dracula.

So they went the In Theaters/VOD path on this one. It's available to rent for $6.99 starting today.

Wow, surprised this went to on demand as well. I got invited to an early screening for this earlier this summer, but couldn't go. Thought this would get a full fledged theatrical release.

Anyways, Roth's movies are a guilty pleasure. Hell, I just saw Green Inferno a few weeks ago. I'll probably rent this on demand.

Watched this on Friday night. It was alright, entertaining enough I suppose. The girls were very easy on the eyes. It was a prime example of terrible Keanu Reeves though. He was almost ridiculously over the top with his performance IMO.

John Wick would have never let those girls in. He would have headshotted them within seconds.

Re: Knock Knock (2015, D: Eli Roth) S: Keanu Reeves

I just finished watching this and I really enjoyed the first part of the film but once
Spoiler:
he banged them both it went downhill fucking fast. he was such a passive sap. Anyone with some sense would have beat the shit out of those two chicks. Hell, his friend almost came through but the stupid bit with the inhaler was not needed. Yeah, and he was supposedly from "Oakland."
A lot of good that did him.

I find the actress that played Keanu's wife very attractive. She's Chilean but looks Swedish. Hell, they filmed it in Chile and the brunette is Eli Roth's wife. I'm gonna go on the assumption that Roth has a South American multi-picture deal with companies down there to make movies. The Green Inferno, Knock Knock, and what else?

Now I'm curious to see the original Knock Knock. It really can't get much worse.

I can see why this was given the VOD late in the game.

He totally did and that is actually what sold the movie for me - Keanu is just going for it in a crazy, what the fuck is this kind of way.... that and Lorenza Izzo is fucking hot. You can't expect to take a movie like this THAT seriously - I had fun with it.

If he's in an Eli Roth movie, you can hardly blame him.

The central ideas-men intimidated by female sexuality (guilty as charged), the reversal of traditional horror movie roles and tropes, the questions of who's victimized and who deserves what-lend themselves to a fascinating range of satirical possibilities. Based on past experience with Eli Roth, however, I'm guessing he's not the most likely candidate to be able to be able to pull off the wit and intelligence necessary to make it work. I'll give it a rent if it hits Redbox though.

I think I'll just track down a copy of Death Game. I love me some Colleen Camp.

I work at a theater that is currently playing this. Every night right near the end of the movie I hear "Where Is My Mind" by The Pixies blaring over the speakers. Out of respect to Fight Club I will not be seeing this movie. Plus the whole Keanu Reeves can't act and Eli Roth is a hack bit.

Couldn't resist. Rented this from Amazon for $7.99. I'll try to make time and watch it in the next day or two. Seems to have a sleazy guilty pleasure factor.

Agree. Saw this last night. It's watchable if you're even remotely a fan of Roth's work. I thought the girls were easily the best part of the movie. Loved how bat shit crazy they turned out to be.

Keanu was hilariously over the top. He was so bad in this.

This was basically a macabre take on a middle aged man's sexual fantasy gone wrong. I was invited to an early screening of this earlier in the summer, but couldn't make it. I could see this getting terrible remarks, hence it going to VOD and skipping a wide release.


Loved the last scene where:


Spoiler:
Keanu accidentially liked the fake Facebook video of him tied up banging one of the girls acting like his daughter when he desperately tried to delete it. It was all under duress



Eli Roth is a lucky dude being a 40-something guy married to that 20-something hottie Lorena Izzo. He probably has a pretty sweet deal to make his movies in Chile.

Eli might be 40-something, but looks young and casts her in all his films as well as plenty of connections in the horror industry. I'd say he's more lucky to have the connections he has.

He may be 40-something, but you wouldn't know from interviews, he sounds like a teenager with ADHD.
