So you’re a happily married man who’s home alone and two girls show up all soaked. What do you do? Well, Keanu is a humble guy and a gentleman so of course he lets them in and calls an Uber but the twist is that these two chicks (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas are bat-shit crazy). Knock Knock and it’s just as dumb as it sounds.
The writing is complete garbage and it makes you wonder at times if you’re actually watching a porno. Sure, there’s nudity and whatever but the lines just makes you regret your poor choice of horror… I’m actually not sure if it’s even horror or not. It struggles balancing comedy (if there was any element of the movie that resembled comedy) with it’s horror premise. I mean, who’s not scared of some good ol’ home invasion? Eli Roth and company somehow took one of the scariest situations and made it flaccid and uninteresting.
Speaking of flaccid and uninteresting, the acting is… well... I love Keanu Reeves but he’s not bringing home an Oscar any time soon. He has a hilarious monologue but it certainly wasn’t meant to be funny or good but it was the highlight! De Armas and Izzo aren’t too memorable either even if they’re trying their best to be threatening and seductive or whatever they were trying to do. I have no idea what they were trying to do. Like, they want to show that sleeping with other girls are bad and if you sleep with those girls, they’re gonna come back and dress up in your daughter’s clothes and try to kill you- I’m looking into it too much. Let’s wrap this up.
Knock Knock is stupid. But it’s not the worst thing in the world. It’s not good either. This is contemporary B-Horror that would be fun to watch if you’re drunk with your buddies. But other than that, it’s a waste of time and money. Go watch porn instead. Go out and marry someone and start a family. Just do something else besides this.
