First teaser trailer for Eli Roth’s ‘Knock Knock’ see’s Keanu Reeves in a dangerous situation


We found out yesterday that Eli Roth’s cannibal horror, The Green Inferno, is looking to be released in August or September this year (hopefully), but while we wait for confirmation on that, we can now take a look at his next horror film, Knock Knock.

Playing at Sundance, Roth has headed to the indie festival for the first time, and out of the festival comes the very first teaser trailer, which Roth shared on Facebook. The teaser, along with the Sundance synopsis, can be found below.

The teaser trailer warns “some doors should never be opened”, and then teases some dark, intense stuff as happily married Evan Webber (Reeves) has his life turned upside down when two strange girls come to his house. The teaser thankfully doesn’t give too much away, but does hint at some really intense, claustrophobic horror to follow, and it looks incredible!

Directed by Eli Roth; written by Eli Roth, Nicolas Lopez, and Guillermo Amoedo, Knock Knock stars Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, and Ana De Armas.


Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Of course he did. Things are going so well, Evan doesn’t even mind spending Father’s Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend. And then there’s a knock on the door.
The two young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) standing on Evan’s doorstep are where Evan’s dream takes a nightmarish turn. Given co-writer/director Eli Roth’s well-deserved reputation for creating cinematic discomfort, it should come as no surprise what happens next: Things get weird, and then dark, and then much, much, much darker. But this is no splatter film, so Roth keeps the horror nice and psychological as Evan’s life—and house—get ripped apart, piece by beautiful piece.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
