KNOCK KNOCK is a thriller about a man who is terrorised in his house by two young women.

Threat

There is a focus on strong, sustained and sadistic threat in scenes where the man is held captive, tied up, tortured and verbally and physically assaulted. In one scene, a woman stabs the man in the chest with a fork which is then twisted in the wound. The man is also forced to watch while the women vandalise his home.

Sex

In one scene, the man has sex with both women in a scene that features strong nudity. In another scene, the man is tied to a bed and forced to have sex with one of the women while she is role-playing as a schoolgirl and wearing a school uniform, and as the other woman films the activity. The woman having sex refers to having committed incest with her father and, during the sex scene, repeatedly refers to the restrained man as 'daddy'. However, it is clear that the man is not her real father and there are no scenes of incestuous sex in the film.

Nudity

There are scenes in which the women expose their breasts and buttocks and mime sexual activity.

There is one use of very strong language ('c**t'), frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'), discriminatory language ('retard') and some drug references.
