Thirty-four years after directing the excellent Halloween sequel Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (watch it HERE), Dwight H. Little has re-teamed with that film’s star Danielle Harris for a new horror thriller called Natty Knocks – which also stars Robert Englund (Little directed him in the 1989 film The Phantom of the Opera), Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Jason James Richter (The Little Things), and newcomer Charlotte Fountain-Jardim.
Scripted by Benjamin Olson, Natty Knocks sees Fountain-Jardim taking on the role of
a small-town babysitter who, on Halloween Eve, along with her “kids,” has to survive serial killer Abner Honeywell who is himself the traumatized son of B-movie horror legend known as “Natty Knocks.”
Jason James Richter produced the film with Sandy Little and Amit Sarin. Vineesha Arora-Sarin executive produced. Film Bridge After Dark holds the worldwide rights to the film and will be presenting it to potential distributors at the American Film Market next month.
Dwight H. Little provided the following statement to Deadline: “Ever since working with Robert Englund on Phantom of the Opera, I have been looking for a way for us to find a project to do together. Natty Knocks is exactly the small-town horror film I was hoping to find to jump back into this genre.“
Film Bridge After Dark’s Jordan Dykstra had this to say: “Natty Knocks is another stellar entry into Dwight’s noteworthy and lengthy genre filmography. Horror has really worked lately at all levels in the marketplace, and the timing couldn’t be better to unveil Natty.“
Little did a great job bringing small town Halloween horror to the screen with Halloween 4, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how Natty Knocks has turned out. Here’s hoping a distributor will want to get it out into the world very soon.
