The Christmas-themed slasher It’s a Wonderful Knife (read our review HERE) received a theatrical release on November 10th, and in the build-up to that release we heard that the movie would eventually be streaming on the Shudder service as well. Now we know exactly when the movie is going to reach Shudder: December 1st. So it will be on there in time for viewings throughout the holiday season.
Coming our way from the team of Tragedy Girls director Tyler MacIntyre and Freaky screenwriter Michael Kennedy, the film has the following synopsis: Set in idyllic Angel Falls. 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.
Jane Widdop (Yellowjackets) plays Winnie Carruthers, with Joel McHale (Community) taking on the role of Winnie’s father and Justin Long (Barbarian) playing Angel Falls town patron Mr. Waters. Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), Jess McLeod (One of Us is Lying), and Cassandra Naud (Influencer) are also in the cast.
A Divide/Conquer production, It’s a Wonderful Knife was produced by Seth Caplan, Daniel Bekerman, and Kennedy, with Greg Gilreath and Adam Hendricks of Divide/Conquer, in association with Fourth Culture Films. The film earned an R rating for “bloody violence, drug use and language“.
RLJE Films handled the theatrical release. The company’s Mark Ward had this to say: “We’re excited to release It’s a Wonderful Knife and once again work with its amazing cast and filmmakers. Over the last few years, we’ve been fortunate to have released horror/holiday films that have been embraced by audiences and we believe this one is no exception.“
