[Reviews by cornholio and Maynard.]

Plot:
Evan (Keanu Reeves) has the perfect life. He is successful, rich, has a beautiful wife in Karen (Ignacia Allamand), they are in love and have two cute children and a dog. When Karen and the kids leave for the weekend and Evan has to stay back to work, all hell breaks loose though. It starts with two girls ringing Evan’s door in the pouring rain looking for another house. Evan lets Genesis (Lorenza Izzo) and Bel (Ana de Armas) in and that is all the invitation they need to fuck him over.

Knock Knock is a very stupid film. Entertaining enough while it lasts but it falls apart at any glance that is even slightly more than passing.

Director: Eli Roth
Writer: Eli Roth, Guillermo Amoedo
Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Nicolás Martínez, Aaron Burns, Richard Burgi
Part of: /slash Filmfestival Christmas special

Plot:
Justine (Lorenza Izzo) is a young college student who is fascinated by a Alejandro (Ariel Levy) and the group of activists he leads. So when she gets the chance to accompany them to the Amazon to save an indigenous tribe and their homes, she jumps at the chance. But unfortunately that could very well be the worst decision of her life: First their bit of activism goes very wrong and then they find themselves in the clutches of a cannibalistic tribe.

The Green Inferno is a tribute to the 70s/80s Italian cannibal movies and it does a pretty perfect version of one of those films. As they tend to be offensive as hell, that’s not necessarily a good thing. But it is entertaining.
