‘Knock Knock’ Trailer: Keanu Reeves Has Girl Trouble
Eli Roth has not one, but two films hitting theaters this fall — first up is The Green Inferno, his cannibal horror throwback film that was delayed by studio issues. The other is Knock Knock, a dramatic thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a married man who gets in over his head with two young women. A new trailer has arrived for the latter, promising the sort of ‘90s thriller vibe that’s become quite trendy as of late — and just the sort of thing Reeves is quite good at.
Knock Knock has made its way around the festival circuit this year, and while early word hasn’t been entirely positive, there’s still something quite alluring about the trailers. Reeves’ recent cinematic output has allowed the actor to harness his strengths, and he’s often best when acting in films that feel like they’d be right at home if they were released in 1999. Knock Knock looks like one of those films.
Co-starring Ana de Armas and The Green Inferno’s Lorena Izzo, Knock Knock is described as follows:
When a devoted husband and father is left home alone for the weekend, two stranded young women unexpectedly knock on his door for help. What starts out as a kind gesture results in a dangerous seduction and a deadly game of cat and mouse. A sexy new thriller from director Eli Roth, KNOCK KNOCK stars Keanu Reeves as the family man who falls into temptation and Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas as the seductresses who wreak havoc upon his life, turning a married man’s dark fantasy into his worst nightmare.
Knock Knock hits theaters and VOD on October 9.
