Knuckleball – Canada, 2018

‘To catch a predator he must think like one’

Knuckleball is a 2018 Canadian horror thriller film directed by Michael Peterson from a screenplay co-written with Kevin Cockle. The 775 Media Corp production stars Michael Ironside, Kathleen Munroe and Munro Chambers.

Alone, and targeted on an isolated farm, twelve year-old Henry (Luca Villacis) finds himself at the centre of a maelstrom of terror, and a dark family legacy, when his secretive grandfather dies suddenly in the night…


Knuckleball is a delicious little horror movie that pays homage to both Home Alone and The Shining. Director Michael Peterson has made a very enjoyable horror thriller that should entertain most movie fans.” Karina Adelgaard, Heaven of Horror

” …having the inventive death traps in the first half of the movie does put a damper on what is probably the most enjoyable part of the film. Sure the story is effective in its own way, but the film is based around a gimmick that could be taken further to great effect. Sadly it ends up feeling like the latter half of the film was just a bit less fun for that reason.” Samler Smoelf
