Two beautiful women knock on your door in the middle of a storm. What's the worst that could happen if you let them in to dry off?
Turns out, the answer is a lot. That's what Evan Webber, played by Keanu Reeves, learns the hard way in Eli Roth's 2015 erotic thriller, Knock Knock. Evan's a good, old-fashioned family man whose wife and kids leave for the weekend while he's hard at work on a new project.
That's when his world gets turned upside down when he hears an unexpected knocking at his front door. He opens it up and - wouldn't you know? There are two gorgeous women saying they got lost and need his help to find the address they're looking for. Well, Evan's a gentleman, so he naturally invites them in and proceeds to make them drinks and show them his record collection.
Evan's a good guy, and these women get a little too close for comfort. Things soon take a turn for the twisted and disturbing. You'll have to check out the film for yourself to see how it all goes down.
Whether you've seen the film before or need some inspiration to check it out for the first time, there's a lot that went into making this film a reality. Here are some fun facts you may not have known about Knock Knock.
It turns out that worrying about who's going to knock on your front door has been a prominent fear for decades now. Eli Roth's Knock Knock is actually based on a 1977 horror-thriller film called Death Game.
The film is roughly the same in its set-up, in that it follows a well to-do businessman, husband, and father who's by himself for a weekend. Suddenly, two young women end up knocking at his door, asking if they can get out of the rain by waiting inside. He accepts and soon finds himself being tormented by his two guests.
