Knock Knock Who's There

Wade, an upper middle-aged pothead, doesn't pay his rent. This, among other things, stresses his landlord Ernie out. However, Wade's marijuana eases that stress, and so they set out to buy some more. In a tale of friendship, controlled substance and armed robbery, Knock Knock Who's There takes three unlikely pals on an adventure from the suburban underground to the long arm of the law.

Film notes

One may watch Knock Knock Who's There and think, "Ah, what a clever little drug movie. See, they get wronged, then they get even, and then, they're punished. Wouldn't the Hayes Code be so goddamned satisfied."
Well, maybe we'd squeeze by the sensors, but our movie has an underlying meaning. It's a movie about the harmlessness of marijuana, and the extreme danger of the world in which it is bought and sold. Even regular schmoes like these three suburban people can be thrown into a life of violence and thievery and supposed "justice" that will alter their harmless lives forever -- and not for the better. Enjoy.
