Dating in general is a tough thing, especially when the person you’re seeing already has kids of their own. Some kids don’t want to split up their attention from their parents with the new stranger, and some kids won’t stop if their parent is in danger. For Sean, he’ll be learning that the hard way in the new dark comedy Ankle Biters.

Ankle Biters follows four little girls whose mother begins dating a pro hockey enforcer named Sean. They all move into his cottage for the summer, but then make a horrific discovery. When the girls hear mysterious noises at night and find bruises on their mother the next day, they do a bit of investigating. After finding the toys used in their mom’s rough play, as well as a sex tape, they all come to the conclusion that their new dad is abusing her. This leads them to make the hard decision, the new dad has got to go! What starts off as cute pranks quickly shifts into dark territory, they don’t just want him gone from their lives, they want him to suffer and pay for his deeds. Needles are put into apples, knives are being stashed away, and body parts are thrown into the lake. These girls are on a mission, and it looks like Sean is going to have an unforgettable summer. These kids have plenty of sugar and spice, and just about as much of everything nice when it comes to hiding their murder plot!


The film stars Zion Forrest Lee (One Eyed King, The Expanse) and Marianthi Evans (Max Payne, Defiance) as the adult couple.
