[Sundance Review] Knock Knock

2 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his tirelessly brutal movies, Eli Roth isn’t for everybody. Hostel and Hostel II aren’t exactly easy watches, but Roth does what he does well, even if it’s not one’s cup of tea. The filmmaker’s work is at its most enjoyable when there’s a playfulness to the horror, which is why Roth’s latest, Knock Knock, a thriller full of laughs, is his […] »

Meet the Sundance Filmmakers #32: Why Eli Roth's 'Knock Knock' Was His Hardest Film to Make

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eli Roth knows what Hollywood expects of him. That's why he's endeavored to change his stripes. He describes "Knock Knock," his first film at Sundance to date, as a "sexually-charged thriller," which is a deviation from the straight slasher genre pieces that were "Hostel" and "Cabin Fever." But Roth's studio-friendly reputation is misaligned with his own philosophy; below, he reveals that making films independently is a priority, and explains why making "Knock Knock" was more difficult than shooting a film in the far reaches of the Amazon. What's your film about, in 140 characters or less?A married man left alone for the weekend is visited by two beautiful girls. What starts as a dark fantasy escalates into a horrific nightmare. Now, what's it Really about?For me the film's about how fragile the world we work so hard to create truly is, and how it can all be undone with one single thoughtless action. »

Teaser Trailer for Keanu Reeves' Knock Knock

4 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A teaser trailer has been released for Keanu Reeves' and Eli Roth’s upcoming psychological thriller, Knock Knock. Roth directed the film, which tells the story of a happily married family man, played by Reeves, who is left alone for the weekend. Things take a turn for the worse when two beautiful girls show up at his house and start wreaking havoc.

The movie is a remake of a 1977 exploitation movie called Death Game. The movie is currently screening at the Sundance Film Festival, and I saw it recently. There will be a review up later today for you to read, but I will tell you right now that I didn't like it.

2015 Sundance Diary: ‘A Walk in the Woods,’ ‘Eden,’ ‘Z for Zachariah’ & ‘Knock Knock’

11 hours ago | | See recent news »

Park City, Utah – There are too many films and not enough time between shuttle shuffles and line waiting to cover the festival day by day. So, in pure improvised festival-going fashion, I’ll now be posting reviews for material that I see, but necessarily in viewing order. Enjoy!

A Walk in the Woods

A Walk in the Woods

Image credit: Sundance Institute

A human being who looks better at his current age than I ever will in my entire life, Robert Redford has a sprightly screen presence that has carried him through thick and thin, even brutal storms that live-or-die on his charisma (Aka “All is Lost,” one of the best films of 2013). For his next adventure, Redford goes softer than a survival story, but nonetheless into an amusing jaunt with “A Walk in the Woods.”

Based on the nonfictional accounts by New Hampshire writer Bill Bryson, Redford embodies the author as an amusing smart-ass, »

19 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Good day, horror fans. Is everybody else sick of this theatrical horror glut that.s taken over for the past few weeks? I mean, you can get your thrills (and groans) from Jennifer Lopez in the wide release of The Boy Next Door, but that doesn.t really count. Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto.s super-violent actioner Killers came out in limited release and on VOD, so we.ll have to make do with that. In smaller news, Eli Roth revealed to Indiewire that The Green Inferno.s release issues may be resolved soon, and that looking at an August or September theatrical premiere. It screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith recently came out and said Cary Fukunaga's feature version will strive for the overwhelming terror of the novel, leaving the TV version in the dust.

Knock Knock Trailer: Watch Keanu Reeves Debate Having A Threesome

19 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Having a threesome is the classic male fantasy - but over the years pop culture has shown us the oh-so-many ways that it can wind up being a disaster. It seems that Eli Roth's new film Knock Knock is yet another example of one of these ways, but rather than being a drama about hurt feelings, it appears this one is a strange up horror show. Watch the debut trailer below: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Eli Roth. As you can probably tell, this preview debuted over on director Eli Roth's personal Facebook page - and it's honestly a rather strange trailer. After all, it does a solid job of setting »

TheWrap Party Report catches Wu-Tang Clan, Nick Nolte and Kevin Bacon turning heads Saturday, while Michael Fassbender’s “job” keeps him away from Utah

“Is Ben Silverman somewhere in here?” Donovan Leitch shouted in to the microphone in the sweaty basement of Cisero’s just before midnight on Saturday night.

Leitch was on stage fronting a supergroup that included Mark McGrath, Dave Kushner, Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney, and Matisyahu. If Ben Silverman was in the room, he was as quiet as his emails, even if a pocket of jacketed bros cheered the shout-out.

Eli Roth Takes Keanu Reeves to Hell and Back in ‘Knock Knock’ [Sundance 2015]

23 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Eli Roth directs a movie, there’s a certain expectation from the film. Gore, disturbing imagery and sheer terror are associated with the director of Cabin Fever and Hostel. Roth knows that as well as anyone. With his latest film Knock Knock, he uses those expectations to his advantage to toy with the audience. The […]

Sundance Review: Keanu Reeves is Frantic Sex Victim in Eli Roth's Middling Sex Thriller 'Knock Knock'

25 January 2015 9:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eli Roth's first three movies — "Cabin Fever," "Hostel" and its sequel — were effectively unsettling horror efforts that also operated on the level of keen social satire. That's a difficult gamble many filmmakers attempt but few pull off with such gleeful entertainment value intact, and perhaps they set the bar too high. Needless to say, Roth's two followups behind the camera, the cannibal shocker "The Green Inferno" and now the home invasion dark comedy "Knock Knock," fail to achieve the same tricky balance. Read More: Eli Roth on Losing His Sundance Virginity With Keanu Reeves and the Latest on 'The Green Inferno' Still, while "Green Inferno" struggled from its shoddy production values and empty commitment to over-the-top gore, "Knock Knock" at least provides an enjoyably ridiculous Keanu Reeves performance and some clever stabs at satirizing white collar America.

Sundance 2015: ‘Knock Knock’ sees Eli Roth and Keanu Reeves offer camp glory

Knock Knock

Written by Eli Roth, Nicolás López and Guillermo Amoedo

Directed by Eli Roth

USA/Chile, 2015

Watching an Eli Roth film is the cinematic equivalent of passing a kidney stone. It’s painful, exhausting, nauseating,and makes you wish you were dead. Which is why it’s such a surprise that his latest, Knock Knock, is actually kind of great in its own twisted and campy way.

The film follows Evan (Keanu Reeves), a happily married family man who gets his life torn apart by a pair of femme fatales, Bel (Ana de Armas) and Genesis (Lorenza Izzo), after he lets them in his house during a storm while his family is away for the weekend. If you don’t clue into the fact that you’re supposed to laugh within the first few minutes, the experience won’t be a rewarding one. The opening is lit like a soap opera, »
