Keanu Reeves opens door to temptation

In his latest sexy thrilling starrer, Knock Knock, Keanu Reeves is a blissfully married man with two children. Then he is lured by two very attractive women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas).

Directed and written by Eli Roth known for his critically acclaimed and phenomenal works in thriller and horror genre such as Cabin Fever that went on to be Lionsgate’s highest grossing film on the year that it was released and the worldwide hit Hostel, Knock Knock is an erotic thriller that toys on the idea of trouble coming into one’s own home and unleashes Pandora’s box.

 “With Knock Knock, I wanted to show just how fragile the world we spend a lifetime building actually is. What if you did everything right – you went to a good school, you dated nice people until you met the right person, you settled down, you built a good life for yourself…and still, you have the sinking feeling you’re missing out on something. What if you wanted to tempt fate just for one night thinking you could get away with it? I wanted the audience to sympathize with Evan, our main character, and to secretly make the same choices he would make. Evan tries to do the right thing, and yet, he can’t ever truly say no to these girls who show up at his door and seduce him. Evan constantly thinks he’s in control, and that’s his fatal flaw. People in their 40’s have no idea the damage one can cause with social media, because they’ve never had to think defensively in that way. Teenagers today have grown up with the threat of someone ruining your life over a picture or a text message, so as a result they know how to destroy someone. It’s a skill you have to develop as a teenager today, but it’s not one that would even be in a character like Evan’s consciousness,” explains Roth of the movie’s premise.
