What’s scarier than a home invasion? A home invasion by a bloodthirsty gang in clown makeup!

Terror Films has picked up worldwide digital rights to THE NIGHT THEY KNOCKED, written and directed by Sean Roberts. Jack Buckley, Linnea Gregg, Maggie Shirk, Rachel Donahue and Brendan Donegan star; the synopsis: “A group of friends are staying at a reclusive mountain house. Suddenly, they have their fun interrupted when a knock at the door leads to a home invasion by a murderous group of travelers donning clown makeup, baseball bats, pitchforks and a thirst for killing. Now these 20somethings find themselves in a fight for their lives!” THE NIGHT THEY KNOCKED has its on-line premiere at the Kings of Horror YouTube channel next Friday, November 6, followed by a livestream chat with the cast and filmmakers.
