Watch KNOCK KNOCK Sundance Film Festival Teaser

Eli Roth Horror

Director Eli Roth has shared first teaser for his new horror-thriller Knock Knock, which had its premiere on Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival. Roth co-wrote it with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo (The Green Inferno). The film stars Keanu Reeves as a happily married architect alone for the weekend who gets an unexpected visit from two attractive young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) who seduce him and turn his life upside down.

Hit the jump to check out Knock Knock teaser, which the Hostel director originally released via his Facebook page. The flick,  which marks Roth and Reeves’ first venture into Sundance, co-stars Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand and Colleen Camp.

My guess is this was in the can before John Wick was even released. And it doesn’t have US distribution yet despite Reeves is such a badass. Meh.You can also check out the images in the gallery and the Sundance long synopsis below.

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.
