When Temptation Comes Knocking


How many married men could resist when two 
rain drenched young beauties knock asking for help?  
Movie “Knock Knock” (2015) examines the fate of marriage 
in the satanist sex cult that passes for Western society.

I was intrigued when Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, a movie I admire, tweeted that “Knock Knock” was “anarchic, misogynist and so un-PC, hilarious, scary, millennial vs Gen-X. Eli Roth’s best film by far.”

We live in a de facto Communist society where what passes for art and entertainment serves the NWO agenda. I am starved for objective social commentary and satire. 

Eli Roth, 52, is the director of a handful of cheap horror-sex movies. He hardly qualifies as a social commentator. But in “Knock Knock” he may have inadvertently made a social statement. 

Keanu Reeves plays Evan Webber, a successful Los Angeles architect and family man in his mid-forties. The opening scenes establish that he has a loving marriage to a beautiful woman and two happy children. However, his wife has a business and has not been as sexually available as Evan might like. 


On a rainy weekend when wife and kids are away, two gen-x bimbos show up at the door asking to use his computer to find directions. While waiting for a taxi, the two girls make clear that they are proud sluts like most of their generation, and gingerly proceed to seduce our hero. Weber makes a manly effort to resist, darting from couch to chair, but inevitably succumbs. 

Free sex turns to horror as it emerges that the girls have targeted Evan Weber and his family. They make it their business to test happily married men and punish those who fail.

“No married man has been able to resist,” they tell Evan as he is tied to a chair and tortured. 

He protests that they knocked at his door and came on to him. He is the victim. He says sex with them has nothing to do with his love for wife and family, whom he adores. 

This is the crux of the matter. Men do not see sexual fidelity as a test of love. 

The movie becomes a Morality Play as Evan’s home, well ordered life and self respect are destroyed by the psycho bimbos.  (One of Roth’s earlier movies, Green Inferno, has ecologists being eaten by Amazon cannibals. Knock Knock updates the theme.)


The bimbos leave him humiliated to be found by wife and children buried up to his neck in the back yard.

Eli Roth is not a brilliant social commentator like Patrick Stettner, Director of  “The Business of Strangers.” (2001)
But he does have a message for men. We live in a pagan society where sex with fertile young women is considered the Holy Grail, even though it falls far short in reality. 

Men can best avoid Satan’s siren call by marrying the right woman. There is no better protection from temptation than a strong marital bond.
