Next month we will once again be covering Fantasia Festival. 2020 may have been a virtual celebration of genre films, it was the year Maria Bissell’s indie feature debut How To Deter A Robber premiered. Going by the critics and fan reactions it was one of the festival favourites, next month it arrives in the UK.
Today Blue Finch Films Releasing have released the UK Trailer, and you’ll never be ‘home alone’ again after you watch the promo!
The film takes us to a barren Wisconsin town that sees Two teenagers get more than they bargained for when they come face-to-face with burglars on a crime spree.
The film maybe purely factious, people will resonate with the crazy rollercoaster times of festive season. Throw in a lose cannon of inept burglars, the sh*t will hit the fan!
Home Alone meets Fargo. In this darkly twisted thriller, a series of unfortunate coincidences leave recent high school graduate Madison, and her boyfriend Jimmy face-to-face with the burglars who are ransacking their neighbourhood. As the two amateur detectives line up booby traps, they soon realise it’s going to take more than some well-placed paint cans to stop them.

How To Deter A Robber will arrive in the UK and Ireland digitally from 2nd August.
