Raven Banner Releasing Nabs Knuckleball for Canada - Fantasia 2018



Just before it premieres this Saturday July 21 at Fantasia Film Festival, Raven Banner Releasing slides in to pick up the rights to Knuckleball for Canada.

Raven Banner likes a good twisted thriller and Knuckleball hits it right out of the park with this nail-biting horror.

Directed by Mike Peterson (Lloyd The Conqueror) this is a feature you wouldn’t expect from the Calgarian director, and that’s a good thing. Keep them guessing. And that’s what you’ll be doing throughout this “R rated version of Home Alone.”

Henry is a 12-year old who finds himself cut off and alone on an isolated farm after his grandfather unexpectedly dies. The nearest neighbor finds out there’s no one to protect the young guy, and Henry becomes a target for reasons that are unknown. His parents are at least 24 hours from returning, and a massive snowstorm is brewing. Henry retreats into the house and prepares for a siege. What follows is a desperate battle for survival that will also unlock the terrifying connection between his family and the killer next door.

When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman.  Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’
