Eli Roth Unleashes ‘Knock Knock’ Teaser Trailer

Some doors should not be opened…

After the saddening news that Green Inferno was postponed indefinitely, it’s a bit of brightness to get a taste of director Eli Roth’s new film Knock Knock (read our review), which stars Keanu Reeves (Constantine). Roth dropped the Sundance teaser trailer earlier tonight and it gives us 30 seconds to feel the flavor of his upcoming psychological thriller.

The Sundance synopsis reads:

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.

    Interesting trailer- looks like it’s going to get pretty twisted. I’m just hoping he used a better camera this time. Green Inferno’s digital look was harsh to the point of distraction.

      You should realize that this comment is like…useless to 95% of the population, if not more, ince Inferno was not realeased for us regular people. Could you use a better exemple instead of showing off?

      • vmackey

        Yeah, he watched the movie. He’s forbidden to comment about it, right? Because Maxime said so.

        • Maxime C

          No vmackey, he can do whatever he wants, really. But if you want to give an exemple about technics, just use one people might actually get. Like you know, using a movie that was released .

          • Smooth Moose

            But the whole point was that he was talking about Green Inferno which is the only film Roth shot like that.

          • Maxime C

            Ok thanks Smooth, here is a precision that helps.
            Thanks.

          • vmackey

            This is an article about Eli Roth dumbass. While should he talk about something unrelated to an Eli Roth’s movie.

          • Maxime C

            Wow i love you too.

          • vmackey

            Ok, enough. Let’s make love.

          • Maxime C

            Ok let me bend over, I deserve it.

  • BloodyMcFlipp

    Turning for a bit of a Roth-Promotion-Platform, are we?

    • vmackey

      Not his fault that he’s very active. Well, kind of his fault actually.

  • markajacoby

    A hack actor working with a hack director… Wow! Count me in!

          • wehoaks

            You’re an idiot.

          • vmackey

            You started it bud.

            No comment.

          • vmackey

            Comment noes.

    • vmackey

      Hack of an actor. Mmmh, let’s see: Matrix, Dracula, John Wick, Speed, Point Break, Devil’s advocate, A scanner darkly, Johnny Mnemonic,… I’m sorry what were you saying?

    • Krug09

      I am surprised Reeves is still around, he is pretty bad. He is in many good movies and sucks in 90% of them.

    • Sutter Cane

      Refer to the following link*: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1ahaiEni3E John Wick should buy him a ton of goodwill. It was awesome.

      *Full disclosure: I am NOT a fan of most of Reeves’s work. This film, and Knock Knock I hope, could signal a new phase in his career. One that is full of good films and not phoned in drek like The Day The Earth Stood Still or 47 Ronin (which maybe he tried in but man was that a stinker).

  • Leebo

    I’d let ’em in.

    • vmackey

      Even if I knew they would make it my last night on earth.

      • Leebo

        You gotta go out with a smile on your face and a busted zipper.

  • astronauta69

    ok

    • vmackey

      Best comment of the year… so far.

  • railridden

    eli roth has no redeeming qualities. I’m glad his movie got shelved, and i hope this one does too

    • KrisXX

      What a terrible attitude you have. You must be miserable person.

      • marklola12 .

        shut it dad case, commenting on multiple posts because you don’t agree lol

        • J Jett

          what is a “dad case”?

    • vmackey

      Still more talented and successful than you’ll ever be. How does that feel? Does that fact hurt?

  • Please just release The Green Inferno already!

    • vmackey

      The distributor took in consideration your comment, and regarding of your importance, decided to release the movie on the spot.

      • Leebo

        I’m hoping that Donte will ask the lotto folks to give me an advance of next weeks numbers!

      • Smart move 🙂

  • Alex

    Remake of Death Game, hmm?

  • Ugh, Roth and his self-righteous world views again. He does not deserve to be called an “icon”.

    • vmackey

      Oh… a lost republican. Foxnews.com is pretty far from Bloody-disgusting.com. Why are you wandering here all alone, little boy?

      • I don’t think we are talking about the same.

        • vmackey

          We don’t give a fuck about his world views. We’re not here to talk politics and shit. Go back to CNN or Foxnews comment sections.

          • I guess it’s fair to judge an artist by his world views if they are expressed through his art.

    • Krug09

      Who called him an icon?

  • Travis

    I’m definitely into seeing this. I feel like he is making a big departure from the material he is known for with this one. I also don’t think he is a bad director, so this could be good. I think The Green Inferno could be good too. I haven’t been a fan of Roth, but I’ll give these a chance.

  • Brian

    Eager to see Clown, too. Roth is stepping it up in a big way.

  • And this seems different from his other work how? Seems stupid.

  • Darksaga

    No clue why people are down on Eli Roth, I’ve loved most of his movies and I guess I can’t relate.

  • Frank

    Goddamn men and their evil penis’s. Disserve to be fucked with after sticking it in whores who tempt them.

  • EmilyQualls

    Work from your house for two to six hours daily, and get paid about $1000-$3000 every week
    -> Start now <-

  • Sutter Cane

    I love that Reeves is credited with Constantine here. I would have gone with Dracula, The Devil’s Advocate, The Watcher or The Replacements…

  • Chrissie-Watkins

    Funny Dames

    • Xmas Jaxon Flaxon Waxon

      Yes, that would be about it, but that’s a cooler working title.

  • tbaio

    Everything looked good until the part where it said “Directed by Eli Roth.” That killed it for me.

  • SaltSlasher

    Despite pasts, Eli Roth and Keanu Reeves team up is a once in life type thing. I am gonna be a watcher of this movie. But I thought a movie with same name came out not long ago.
    But I guess you leave it to Eli Roth to hit up 2 Spanish actresses, I am very well aware of Ana de Armas, but this Lorenza Izzo intrigues me. However, I am not a big fan of thrillers, they generally lack the horror essence that a guy like Hitchcock could pull off.

    I hate when people try and use thrilling to make a Horror, and deliberately not having anything horror, cause they think they can pull a Hitckcock off, aka, make a suspensful movie without much “horror, aka violence, spooky shit, and lots of sex, blood and gruesome antagonist.

  • liltrav88888

    the blonde in that pic is really hot

  • Lucca Cantisano

    Probably is like his previous works: Somehow nice directing and acting ruined by his terrible scripts with laughable childish dialogue and irritating sense of self-promotion.
