SUMMER OF ’84 Writers THE KNOCKING Will Be Supernatural & Terrifying In The Tone of HEREDITARY

Summer of ’84 writers Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith’s The Knocking, a slow-burn fright flick with a big impactful ending, was set to mark directorial debuts and begin filming back in April but was delayed due to the pandemic.

But today the duo tease the film is still coming soon and will be a supernatural and terrifying mystery-romance-horror movie in the tone of Hereditary.

They tell Knight Light: “It sort of revolves around the idea of a Faustian bargain. Tonally, it’s sort of like a mystery-romance-horror [movie]. It’s not tonally unlike Hereditary, where it’s something that’s like supernatural and terrifying, but also feels like it could really happen. We cannot wait to get it made and show the world. We’re building out a really cool cast that we’re excited about right now. We’ve already got our leads and a couple of the other bigger roles.”
