Keanu Reeves’ erotic thriller film becomes a Netflix hit out of nowhere

Release back in 2015, the erotic thriller movie having Keanu Reeves and Ana de Armas has jumped to the second spot of the most-watched recent film on Netflix. It’s only second to Holidate, a rom-com film, which was just released on 28th October 2020. The sudden hike in viewership is something that you might have never imagined. 

The development is understandable due to the challenges imposed on the people by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. According to the recent data revealed by Netflix, at present, people are more likely to watch the less mainstream/popular titles that remained under the rock for all these times. The movie ranks ahead of the likes of Rogue City, Snowden, Over the Moon, and many other titles. 

Even Keanu Reeves might have been surprised by this, but there is no issue if the viewers enjoy it. 

The movie takes on a satirical approach to its horror element, and the story follows Evan Webber. Evan, an architect, is forced to spend Father’s day with his wife and children, and for that, they went on a beach trip. The normal day suddenly changes when two unplanned guests pay them a visit. Two women came to them for help claiming that they lost their way. Soon after letting them the phone, Keanu realizes that something doesn’t add up, and the two women were bad news.

What follows after is a horrifying tale that will haunt Evan and his family for the rest of their lives. You can watch the official trailer of the film below.

The film earned around $6.3 million against a $2 million budget at the box-office, and the film’s overall reception was average. It scored 53 on Metacritic and a 37% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. According to Rotten Tomatoes, 

It brings a lot of talent to bear on its satirical approach to torture horror, but not effectively enough to overcome its repetitive story or misguidedly campy tone.

Accompanying them were Lorenza Izzo, Ignacia Allamand, Dan Baily, and Megan Baily. They portrayed the characters of Genesis, Karen Alvarado, Jake, and Lisa.
