DON’T KNOCK TWICE
As a former slave to drugs, Jess has long regretted having preferred her addiction to her young daughter Chloe, who found herself quickly placed in an orphanage. She has never digested this brutal abandonment. Even years later, now that she has turned her life around and has become a successful businesswoman, Chloe is still unable to call her “mommy”. Yet, one evening, Chloe suddenly drops by at her mother’s house. And that’s not because she has learned to turn the other cheek, but because she’s convinced that she is preyed upon by an evil witch who’s responsible for the disappearance of several children. Jess first thinks that her daughter must be out of her mind to believe in such an improbable urban legend. But after a few spectral visits that would whiten anyone’s hair, Jess will become afraid of doors, especially when someone knocks twice. Caradog James already visited us in 2014 with the scifi epic The Machine. This time he’s back with a horror film whose intrigue is reminiscent of the classic Candyman. But James soon abandons tributes and references for a supernatural thriller with some great twists, in which Katee Sackhoff (Riddick, Oculus, Battlestar Galactica) will have to face Javier Botet (Rec, Mama, Crimson Peak, The Conjuring 2).
