John is an avid role player. He has feelings for Brooke, a fellow role player, but when Brooke makes it clear to him that the feelings are far from mutual, John is thrown into despair and takes his own life.
"Knight Chills is one of those rare films that both pays homage to its source material and takes it in a new direction. It is a film about roleplayers, yes, and the games that they are enamored with but it is also about love, heartbreak, loss and what happens when fantasy worlds take residence in our own reality. There is room for both, of course, but the outcome is based on which master is served and in which amount. Knight Chills takes us down a dark path and forces us to see what happens when the fantasy outweighs the reality. Ahead of its time, let's hope a new audience can give Knight Chills the attention it deserves."Written by

A group of 20-somethings have regular Role Playing Game gatherings at their former high school teacher's house. John, the geekiest of them all, gets picked-on by some of the other "gamers." He kills himself and the others find themselves being stalked by a knight on horseback. Yeah. This movie is quite possibly the worst film I've ever seen. I've always thought obsessive "gamers" (I cringe at that word!) were somewhat off, but this movie just makes them look incredibly stupid when playing their RPG. I can usually find some redeeming value in any movie, no matter how bad, but that is not the case with "Knight Chills." My Rating: 0/10.
