Watch: Keanu Reeves is Terrorized in New ‘Knock Knock’ Trailer

35 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The new trailer for Keanu Reeves’ horror movie “Knock Knock” gets very physical, in more ways than one.

The first official full trailer for the film shows Reeves as Evan Webber, a married man with children. When his family is away, he lets two women who got caught in the rain into his home. They eventually convince him cheat on his wife with them, which turns out to be a very bad decision after the duo turns on him.

Horror maven Eli Roth, best known for the “Hostel” movies, his Netflix original series “Hemlock Grove” and the recent cannibal pic “The Green Inferno,” directs the unofficial remake of Peter Traynor’s 1977 exploitation film “Death Game.”

Lorenza Izzo and Anna De Aramas play the two femme fatales. Izzo previously worked with Roth on “Aftershock.”

The movie made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where Lionsgate picked it up for $2.5 million. »

Keanu Reeves Terrorized by Cute Girls in Eli Roth's Knock Knock [Trailer]

22 May 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Eli Roth isn't doing so well these days. While "Hemlock Grove" is doing nicely on Netflix, we've yet to hear anything about the release (theatrical or otherwise) of The Green Inferno (trailer) and now his newest endeavour Knock Knock (teaser), though picked up by Lionsgate, continues to sit without a release date. It's like we're doomed never to see another Roth movie again – even though he keeps making them.

Knock Knock stars Keanu Reeves as Evan, a happily married father who is left home alone for a few days. He's chillin', working on a new p [Continued ...] »

Keanu Reeves's one-night stand is pure torture in new trailer for Eli Roth's Knock, Knock

22 May 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A one-night stand with two beautiful young women becomes absolute torture for Keanu Reeves in the trailer for Knock, Knock.

Director and co-writer Eli Roth's horror film casts Reeves as family man Evan Webber, who gives in to his passion when two beautiful girls come knocking on a rainy night.

A totally bodacious interview with Keanu Reeves

With his wife and children away, Evan becomes the victim of a devious trap by Karen (Ignacia Allamand) and Genesis (Lorenza Izzo) to test his fidelity to his family.

The two girls brutally torture Evan, destroy his beautiful home and threaten to end his life, all because he failed their test of loyalty.

Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock) and Nicolás López (Santos) teamed up with Roth on the screenplay for Knock, Knock.

Knock, Knock opens on June 26 in the UK. A Us release date has not been set. »

Watch: New Trailer for Thriller 'Knock Knock' Starring Keanu Reeves

22 May 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You've been a very bad boy, Evan!" Voltage Pictures has debuted a full-length trailer for Eli Roth's latest film Knock Knock, a wacky home invasion thriller starring Keanu Reeves. He plays the victim, though, and the invaders this time are two feisty, nasty girls - played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas. This first premiered at Sundance this January in the Midnight category, but didn't up with any crazy buzz (nor did we have the chance to see it there). The setup is fairly interesting, but it almost turns into Funny Games half way through and doesn't seem to go anywhere else. But I'll watch pretty much anything Keanu stars in. Here's the newest trailer for Eli Roth's Knock Knock, originally from YouTube (via The Playlist): Knock Knock is directed by Eli Roth (Hostel) from a script he co-wrote with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo. »

Femme Fatales terrorize Keanu Reeves in new ‘Knock Knock’ trailer from Eli Roth

22 May 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If It Follows was the best argument for abstinence in a horror movie in some time, Eli Roth’s Knock Knock should make a good double feature about the sin of adultery.

Keanu Reeves stars in Roth’s latest, in which two gorgeous women (breakouts Lorenza Izzo and Ana De Armas) seemingly stranded out in the rain take advantage of him sexually while his family is away, only for them to return, invade his home and terrorize him for his infidelity.

In our review upon its premiere at Sundance, Dylan Griffin called it “camp glory,” writing, “Knock Knock is Roth’s most measured work to date, but it does still carry some of his filmmaking’s more significant pitfalls.” Griffin added that the film is designed to be something of a horror satire, lit like a soap opera and offering great joys in Keanu Reeves shouting at the top of his lungs. »

Femme Fatales Play Funny Games With Keanu Reeves In Knock Knock Trailer

22 May 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I can think of worse ways to go. Still, Keanu Reeves looks none-too-happy about being put through the wringer by two sexy, psychopathic intruders in the latest trailer for Eli Roth’s home invasion horror Knock Knock.

Reeves plays a family man who gives into his carnal impulses when two beautiful women (Lorenzo Izzo and Ana de Armas) turn up on his doorstep, claiming to be stranded during a storm, then seduce him. When he awakens in bed with them the next morning, though, the poor guy realizes that his impromptu fling isn’t just going to disappear, as the two lovely (and possibly lethal) ladies proceed to torture him psychologically, sexually and physically.

Roth has brought us some of the more twisted horror flicks in recent years, from Cabin Fever to Hostel, but he’s been on a downward trend in recent years thanks to the middling Green Inferno. »

Keanu Reeves goes wild in the first trailer for ‘Knock Knock’

22 May 2015 3:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’re guessing Keanu Reeves is back. Hot off the success of the brilliant John Wick, Reeves returns for a new sexually charged thriller from writer/ director Eli Roth. In Knock Knock, Reeves plays a happily married father who falls for a vebus honeytrap when two  girls turn up at his front door on a cold, wet night.

The film looks like a kind of return to the torture porn genre for director Roth, and screams elements of the brilliant Hostel and its two sequels, though Roth is describing the movie as psychosexual thriller. Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas star alongside Reeves in Knock Knock, which opens on the 26th June.

Watch the trailer below.

Keanu Reeves Gets Terrorised In New Knock Knock Trailer

22 May 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

His first name may translate as "cool breeze over the mountains" but it's more a case of "shitstorm in the kitchen" for Keanu Reeves in exploitation homage Knock Knock. The Eli Roth home-invasion thriller has a new trailer to watch below.Knock Knock finds Reeves as a seemingly happily married man living with his wife (Ignacia Allamand) when two beautiful young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) show up. They seduce him and end up wrecking his perfect life. With knives and guns and whatever else comes to hand. Ouch.It's another chance to see Reeves doing genre work, with John Wick's success - and planned sequel - showing there's plenty of appetite for that. On this evidence, though, he's on the receiving end of the majority of the punishment, until the tables, presumably, get turned.Roth has billed this one as a "psychosexual thriller" in the spirit »

Keanu Reeves gets seduced by two twisted hotties in new Knock Knock trailer

22 May 2015 12:56 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Earlier this year we got a brief first look at Eli Roth's Knock Knock, and now a full international trailer has been released for the horror thriller. Inspired by the 1977 Peter S. Traynor movie Death Game, the film stars Keanu Reeves as a married man who is tempted by two very hot young girls (Aftershock's Lorenza Izzo and Blind Alley's Ana de Armas) after they show up at his door looking for help, and seems to be a mix between Fatal Attraction and Hard Candy. »

Keanu Reeves Yells a Lot in the New Knock Knock Trailer

21 May 2015 11:03 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Cute dog, nice house, Keanu Reeves — at first glance this trailer might look more like something for John Wick than the psycho-sexual thriller Knock Knock. But then Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas appear. After Reeves's character slips up, the two femme fatales break all his stuff and make him lose his marbles. Lots of yelling and laughing ensues; most of it is uncomfortable because this is Eli Roth and bad things must happen to semi-bad people (hopefully the dog gets a pass). »

Watch: Keanu Reeves' Sexy Secret Turns Into A Nightmare In New Trailer For Eli Roth's 'Knock Knock'

21 May 2015 8:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last fall, someone killed Keanu Reeves' dog in "John Wick," and the result was a lethal path of vengeance marked by a bullet-riddled pile of bodies. But for the actor's next genre outing, he won't have a special set of skills and a cache of weapons to rely on. He'll just have to hope to outsmart two sexy, dangerous girls in Eli Roth's "Knock Knock," and a brand new trailer is here. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the movie co-stars Lorenza Izzo, Ana De Armas, Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand and Colleen Camp, and follows a successful man whose Father's Day romp with two women who aren't his wife, turns into a nightmare when it turns out they want much, much more. We didn't get a chance to check out the movie in Park City, but with some international dates coming up, hopefully U.S. »

Knock Knock: Keanu Reeves Gets Tortured By Sexy Psychopaths in International Trailer

21 May 2015 7:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Eli Roth's latest horror flick, Knock Knock. The film stars Keanu Reeves as a nice family man whose life is turned upside down when two gorgeous young women, played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana De Armas, come knocking at his door asking for help. Once inside, the ladies put their twisted seduction into motion and things dark in no time. Roth has a tendency to go overboard with his films, sometimes in a fun way (Cabin Fever) and sometimes in a downright awful way (The Green Inferno). I like this trailer, and it looks like Roth might finally be showing a little restraint. Based off Peter Traynor's 1977 exploitation film Death Game, Knock Knock looks like good old fashioned fucked up fun. The trailer certainly teases a lot of depraved shenanigans, but seemingly more of the mental torture variety, which is a »
