Storyline

The sculptor Jess unsuccessfully tries to retrieve the custody of her teenage daughter Chloe. During the night, Chloe and her boyfriend Danny play a prank challenging an urban legend: and they knock twice on the door of the witch Mary Aminov. Soon Danny is hunted down by a fiend and vanishes. When Chloe is haunted by the evil spirit, she flees to the house of her estranged mother and her husband Ben to stay with her mother. Soon the demon finds her and haunts the house while Ben is traveling. Jess' model Tira sees darkness around Chloe and she researches the Internet about the mystery. Meanwhile Detective Boardman is investigating the disappearance of Danny and suspects Jess is manipulating her troubled daughter. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Movie Review: Don't Knock Twice (2016)
11 July 2017 | by (United States/ Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

This film stars (Halloween & Battlestar Beauty) Katee Sackhoff as Jess, a sculptor with a somewhat troubled past. Lucy Boynton (from NETFLIX's I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House) as her rebellious and estranged teenage daughter.

The opens up as Jess and her husband Ben played by Wales native, Richard Mylan are working on rekindling Jess' relationship with her troubled young teenage daughter, Chloe. After another unsuccessful attempt, the film follows Chloe's teenage angst with her boyfriend Danny as they unknowingly awaken a daemonic force by playing a childhood game.

This escalates a series of disturbing events which lead to Chloe coming back into Jess' life. Jess unknowingly tries to help her daughter as she is soon to be dragged into Chloe's personal Hell. Both women soon must try to solve the mystery and save their own lives with the help of a local detective (played by Nick Moran of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels & Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 & 2) who seems to have certain inside details of a previous case that includes Chloe and the Daemon Witch.

Now, many will think that the creature in this film is CGI... I assure you the creature actor in this film will disturb you like no other. The BABA YAGA is played by none other than the amazing Javier Botet (known for IT, The Conjuring 2, The REC Series, Mama & many more!!)

The story originates from real life urban legend which to my knowledge has never been done before in cinematic form. This IFC film is something quite new and incorporates a evil as old as time. Not many films have used the BABA YAGA as a antagonist. This film shows the evil that is exactly that, but without giving too much away. Too many horror films seem to go for showing the creature full on to the audience leaving NOTHING to the imagination. This UK film understands the complexity and the simplicity of going just far enough for the target audience, so when the scares kick in, they are appreciated and used to their full extent.

If you haven't seen this film, I recommend you add this film to your collection. IFC has another great horror film on their hands and Caradog James has brought to life another great horror icon.
