Pretty decent ghost story with decent scares with minimal to no gore (which isn't a BAD thing). Hilarious that EVERY male in this movie (including the ghost..lol) crushes on Kimberly Rowe...although she IS pretty hot, even I crushed on her during the course of the movie (hehe). Definitely worth a watch if your into 80's style ghost story/haunted house movies.
Great goost movie for the price.

"Basically, two scientists (husband and wife) are living at a house for a year to study a rumor of a haunting. The ghost becomes attached to the wife. Instead of studying the ghost, the couple decides to help it out. If I tell you anymore, I will give the movie away. This movie was done very well. The sound was great. If you have Surround Sound, you will be a little spooked. You will hear moaning from behind you, and walking around your house. I think for the price of the movie, it was a really good purchase."
DON'T ANSWER THE KNOCK

"KNOCKING ON DEATH'S DOOR is a sometimes spooky, often times murky, little ghost story. It opens with the savage killing of a cop with an ax, and then segues twenty years later to the wedding of a parapsychologist and a scientist. They are "given" as a wedding present the task of investigating the supposedly haunted house where the murder took place. Once there, they find there certainly is a ghost hovering about, and they decide to try to find out who the ghost is and what it wants. Although at times stiffly directed, the story moves along fairly well, and we get a few shocks along the way. Brian Bloom isn't very effective as the husband; Kimberly Rowe does well as the wife; and reliable David Carradine (a recent Golden Globe nominee for Kill Bill) plays a mysterious doctor. No real plot surprises, but an entertaning, relatively goreless shocker."
I loved it !!

"i saw this movie for rent and decided to give it a shot. my hubby and i sat down and were watching it together. During the movie i had to go potty so i got up to go and he followed me to the bathroom and told me not to leave him alone in the living room. My hubby is affraid of ghosts and the movie had freaked him out enough for him to follow me to the potty. Any movie that can do that get's 5 stars from me!!!!"
