Having a threesome is the classic male fantasy - but over the years pop culture has shown us the oh-so-many ways that it can wind up being a disaster. It seems that Eli Roth's new film Knock Knock is yet another example of one of these ways, but rather than being a drama about hurt feelings, it appears this one is a strange up horror show. Watch the debut trailer below:



As you can probably tell, this preview debuted over on director Eli Roth's personal Facebook page - and it's honestly a rather strange trailer. After all, it does a solid job of setting up the film's initial action - Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is home alone and basically gets seduced into having a threesome with two lovely ladies (Ana de Armas, Lorenza Izzo) - but it doesn't actually demonstrate any of the negative consequences that are going to be on display. Yes, obviously Reeves is doing something morally wrong by cheating on his wife, but what exactly can we expect to see as his horrific punishment? As things stand, all we really have are a few ominous title cards and a stern-looking Reeves walking down a hallway while women giggle in the background.

I am certainly fan of trailers that don't give absolutely everything away, and I hope that this Knock Knock teaser is being specifically vague because there's a secret in the movie that's best left to experience on the big screen - but at the same time this trailer isn't necessarily ominous or interesting enough to make be beg for the answer to that question.

This trailer has been unveiled because of Knock Knock's recent debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and at the very least what does make it somewhat interesting is that it appears to be a movie from a much more restrained Eli Roth. The filmmaker is rather notorious for equating gushing blood with scares, but here he looks to be going for more terror than horror. As mentioned, this teaser doesn't really show us much so it's hard to say if things will stay that way, but I am hoping that this is more of a thoughtful, tense home invasion piece instead of another gore-fest.

If you really dug this Knock Knock teaser and want to see the film, the bad news is that we don't have exact details on how you will be able to go about doing that just yet. The movie has not yet picked up distribution, so there currently aren't any release plans. Stay tuned, though, as the announcement of a deal may not be long off.
