Why watch this film?
"Knocking" is a Swedish horror-thriller film directed by Frida Kempff. The movie follows a woman who leaves a psychiatric ward after a nervous breakdown, only to start hearing mysterious knocking sounds in her apartment. The lead performance by Cecilia Milocco is outstanding, and her portrayal of a woman struggling with her sanity is both compelling and heartbreaking. Kempff's skillful direction keeps the audience engaged throughout the movie, even during its slower moments. The film's visual style is also striking, with clever shots that focus on thoughts and feelings. The sound design and score are also noteworthy, adding to the overall atmosphere of the film. While the film's concept may not be entirely original, it still manages to be a taut and upsetting suspense yarn about hearing and listening and how they are not the same thing. Although the movie is repetitive at times, it is still a near-masterclass in staging a simplistic yet appropriately tense psychological thriller that continues to build onto itself. "Knocking" is a must-watch for horror fans who enjoy slow-burn, character-driven stories that leave a lasting impression.
