Much better than I was expecting.
Full disclosure…I was an extra in this film (the airport scene, you can almost see me but not quite) so I’ll admit I have a bit of a bias towards this film but I really had no idea what it was about until I saw it. Anyway, after reading the positive and negative reviews I was cautiously optimistic but set my expectations relatively low.

I was actually quite surprised at how much I enjoyed the film and think the negative reviewers either missed the point or are maybe a case of you can’t please everyone all the time. Sure there are predictable elements but there are a number of surprises along the way as well. I thought it was a very taught thriller that kept up a really good sense of dread and foreboding all through the film. Right from the beginning, things don’t feel right and the bleak winter Canadian prairie location (even though the film is set in the US) really add to the uneasiness. This film never lets you feel comfortable in your seat as the cinematography, score, and acting just keep things feeling tense. If you don’t like that kind of feeling, this movie isn’t for you.

I thought the director managed to work very well within his limited budget and put together a pretty decently acted and constructed film. The villain especially brought a spine tingling creepiness to the roll. Overall, to me it didn’t feel like a low-budget or b-rater horror flick as it wasn’t trying to be something that it wasn’t. It was aware of it’s limitations and wasn’t trying to be a slick Hollywood blockbuster. Without giving anything away, my only minor beef was with one part of the ending that I thought could have had some further fleshing out or explanation. You can assume certain things but it just felt like a string or two was left hanging.

Even if you can overlook the wishy-washy story it still isn’t much of a thriller
Mother Mary (Kathleen Munroe) and Paul (Chenier Hundal) leave their 12 year old son Henry (Luca Villacis) with Mary’s father Jacob (Michael Ironside) so that they can fly out to attend a cousin’s funeral. Initially all is well (albeit Henry isn’t quite at home with his granddad’s quirky ways). However, Jacob’s sudden death overnight sets off a chain reaction consisting of Henry being pursued and terrorised and finds himself in a battle of wits to try to thwart his pursuer…

As I’ve stated in my review summary Knuckleball is poor as a thriller, but worse than that are the numerous things with the characters/narrative that just didn’t make sense; for a start, Mary mentions that she doesn’t like her father’s home and that she didn’t like going there because she believes that her mother killed herself because her father had an affair. If that’s the case then why on earth would you be happy for your child to stay somewhere that you wouldn’t want to stay particularly given what had happened to Mary’s mother? It seemed very odd to me and it felt like the parent’s couldn’t wait to leave their son with Jacob and get as far away as possible (which is what they did). The father’s general disinterest with his own son’s well-being was another puzzling element to the story – I thought at first I missed something and that he was perhaps Henry’s stepfather (which would make his passiveness a little easier to believe, but I checked back at the start of the film and he is indeed Henry’s dad so why the lackadaisical attitude?). To me this formed part of the problem as the parent’s behaviour drew me slightly away from proceedings – the son leaves a voicemail message that they don’t listen till until 2 days later? It meant to me that the film lacked any real sense of urgency.

Where the film is at its overall weakest however is definitely in the first half of the picture; you can actually fast-forward through the first 30 minutes and you would barely miss a thing. Michael Ironside grunts and mumbles his way through the film (with its poor storyline and low production values it did make me wonder what made him sign up to this project?). His grandson is subjected to labour intensive tasks and throws a baseball at a wall a few times and then Jacob pops his clogs which then just becomes a catalyst for the final sequence of events.

The finale sees Henry fighting to survive against his step uncle/uncle Dixon (Munro Chambers) who has murderous intentions on his mind – is he just naturally crazy or is he hacked off that Jacob insisted that Dixon remained his dirty secret? Perhaps it was a bit of both because if he was just hacked off with Jacob then why try and kill Henry? Playing out like a cross between Home Alone and The Shining the battle of wits between Henry and Jacob in the latter stages of the film do give the picture a slight lift, but only on odd occasions. Oh yeah and one other thing that I thought was pretty stupid was when Henry’s parents return at the end and they’re able to enter a murder scene unchallenged by any police officers? Surely the area would have been cordoned off in the real world??

Had it actually worked as a thriller I could have overlooked many of the puzzling elements involving the story/characters then it would probably would have been something I would recommend in the mould of a ‘leave your brain at the door type film.’ But the fact that it lacks any significant moments of terror or suspense results in it being a tedious waste of 80 odd minutes.

Ending on a positive I did think that Chambers & Villacis were pretty good in their respective roles.
