Tyler MacIntyre’s (Tragedy Girls; V/H/S/99) festive shocker, It’s A Wonderful Knife is all set to release exclusively on theaters this Firday, November 10th, 2023 before streaming on Shudder at a later date.
The film will make its world premiere at Beyond Fest on October 8, 2023. It will then go on to be released exclusively in theaters across the country on November 10th before then streaming on Shudder at a later date.
Directed by MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls; V/H/S/99), and written by Michael Kennedy (Freaky), the film stars Justin Long (Barbarian), Joel McHale (“Community”), Jane Widdop (“Yellowjackets”), Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps) Jess McLeod (“One of Us is Lying”) and Cassandra Naud (Influencer).
In It’s A Wonderful Knife, a year after saving her town from a psychotic killer on Christmas Eve, Winnie Carruthers’ life is less than wonderful — but when she wishes she’d never been born, she finds herself in a nightmare parallel universe and discovers that without her, things could be much, much worse. Now the killer is back, and she must team up with the town misfit to identify the killer and get back to her own reality. It’s A Wonderful Life by way of Scream.
In anticipation of the film’s release this week, CinemaChords’ Ashley Northey sat down with MacIntyre to discuss how he became attached to direct Kennedy’s script and how they devised a plan to create a Christmas slasher poles apart from the myriad of festive horror movies that have come before.
