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

A pair of femme fatales wreak havoc on the life of a happily married man.

Yeah, someone in the comments said it was Funny Games, with two hot chicks. I'll go a step further and say Keanu's character is a secret psycho.

I can see accusations of misogyny about this film from a mile away.

This came out before Funny Games and probably influenced it. And reading that article is sounds like a direct remake/ripoff of this one.

One of the reviews:

Eli Roth's glossy and reasonably fun update of Peter Traynor's 1977 exploitation movie "Death Game."

Another:

A taboo thriller that will put Fifty Shades of Grey to shame.

That clip is so cheesy that it looks like the beginning of a Funny Or Die or College Humor video.

Roth has yet to make a great film, and this certainly won't be the exception.

Colleen Camp who plays one of the crazy chicks in Death Game is the producer of Knock Knock.
Spoiler:
Plus she has a cameo in the 'update'


If Roth can capture half of the intense insanity of Death Game then Knock Knock should be a blast.

Yea Death Game was intense. I liked it quite a bit when I was younger for obvious reasons...I have not seen it in many years however.

I think it still holds up well but then again, it has been a favorite of mine since VHS days.
Death Game is such a product of its time, even though it was most likely only jumping the home invasion / Last House on the Left bandwagon.
What I like about the movie is the plot because its like an urban legend story. So simple yet very effective. We shall see how this translates in Roth's update.

On top of that I read that Peter Traynor (Director/Producer of Death Game) and Camp's co-star in Death Game, Sondra Locke have Executive Producer credits.

Interesting 54 seconds to start off a trailer like that....

I thought I'd be the first to mention the thematic similarities to Death Game. Man, what a piece of trash that is!

I wouldn't mind being tortured and murdered after a threesome with those two.
