Fantasia 2020: THE BLOCK ISLAND SOUND Trailer

A new trailer has been released for the horror film The Block Island Sound, which is premiering at this year’s virtual edition of Montreal’s Fantasia Festival.

Directed by Kevin and Matthew McManus, the film involves a strange force that takes over a small island town causing chaos with all living things present there.

The Block Island Sound will be screening at 7:00PM on August 28th at fantasiafestival.com. Note, you must be a Canadian resident to access this year’s festival.


Something terrifying is happening off the coast of Block Island. A strange force is thriving, influencing residents and wildlife alike. Birds are dropping out of the sky. Some people have been dropping too, into inexplicable emotional collapse. Harry Lynch (Chris Sheffield, THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT) has always been a bit of an outsider in town. Now, he watches in dread as his father (Neville Archambault, 13 CAMERAS) grows increasingly forgetful and confused. And angry. Very, very angry. His sister Audry (Michaela McManus, THE VILLAGE), whose work in marine biology will soon prove invaluable, returns to town with her daughter and immediately sees what Harry sees. Her explorations into the increasingly grisly wildlife phenomena intersects with the triggers of her father’s actions, leading them all towards chilling revelations that no one is prepared for. Revelations that will affect her family in unimaginable ways.
