A new trailer for director Eli Roth’s new invasion thriller Knock Knock has landed online. The film is a twist on the familiar genre with Keanu Reeves playing Evan Webber, a loving family man who has to stay home and work while his wife and kids head out of town for the weekend. One rainy night, two young women show up and his door cold, wet and in desperate need of a phone. Unfortunately for Evan, Bel (Ana de Armas) and Genesis (Lorenza Izzo) aren’t as innocent and helpless as they seem, and Evan’s life gets turned upside down.
This is one of two new Eli Roth joints hitting theaters this year, with the first being the cannibal pic The Green Inferno. Knock Knock is certainly the less gore-filled of the two (at least I assume), and it looks to be a fun little movie. At the very least, it should be fascinating to see the fruits of a Reeves/Roth collaboration.
Watch the new trailer below, and if you missed Perri’s wide-ranging interview with Roth on everything from gore to his first big studio movie, click here. Knock Knock will be released in theaters and VOD on October 9th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Knock Knock:
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.
