Avid role player John is a loner and outcast. Even within the insular would of his weekly convening tabletop RPG club, he is both bullied and ostracized. The outspoken crush he harbors for Brooke, one of his fellow players, remains bitterly unrequited. Daunted by frequent humiliations and Brooke’s continuous rejections, John commits suicide in a fiery car wreck. Unfortunately for the game master and the members of the gaming circle, fantasy soon becomes a deadly reality as John mysteriously returns for revenge on horseback in the form of his former gaming alter ego, the vengeful knight Sir Kallio. The members of the club who previously taunted John are slaughtered one by one as the ghostly knight leaves behind a bloody trail of carnage as well as an ominous red rose at the site of each murder.

One of the few slasher movies focused around the world of tabletop role playing games and the highly publicized moral panic that surrounded its enthusiasts throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s, Knight Chills is equally notable as one of the few pre-digital SOV horror features to be helmed by a woman. Directed by Katherine Hicks and featuring performances by DJ Perry (In The Woods), Michael Rene Walton (The Mourning), & Rebecca Holden (The Sisterhood, Outlaw Prophet), the Michigan lensed Knight Chills remains essential viewing for slasher film completists, role playing game adventurers, and devotees of regional shot on video curiosities alike. Saturn’s Core is proud to present the first ever Blu-Ray release of Knight Chills; newly scanned and restored from the original master tapes and accompanied by a treasure hoard of new and archival special features.
