description

After his grandfather unexpectedly dies in the night, 12-year-old Henry finds himself cut off and alone on an isolated farm. When his nearest neighbour, Dixon, realises that the boy has no one to protect him, Henry becomes a target for reasons he cannot understand. With his parents at least 24 hours from returning and a massive snowstorm 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. Best described as an R-rated version of HOME ALONE, KNUCKLEBALL stars Luca Villacis (CHANNEL ZERO), Munro Chambers (TURBO KID) and Michael Ironside (SCANNERS, TOTAL RECALL).

"Imagine HOME ALONE as an R-rated thriller, and you have the concept behind this Canadian film, which involves a young boy who gets snowed in at this grandfather’s house before all hell breaks loose."
