‘It’s A Wonderful Knife’ Trailer: Holiday Slasher Is A Mix Of ‘Scream’ And ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’

The Jimmy Stewart Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life is pretty much unavoidable during the holiday season. But if you’re one of those who’s bored of all of that good cheer, then perhaps slasher-comedy It’s a Wonderful Knife is more your speed, especially if you like your Christmas fare good and bloody.

It’s a Wonderful Knife comes from Freaky writer Michael Kennedy and Tragedy Girls director Tyler MacIntyre, and if you know those two horror comedies you can see the same tone reflected in the new trailer.

A combination of Scream and It’s a Wonderful Life, the film centers on a young woman who saves her idyllic hometown from a psychotic killer on Christmas Eve, only to lose her best friend in the process. Racked with guilt, she wishes she’d never been born and causes a nightmarish parallel universe to emerge, discovering that without her things would be much much worse.

The film stars Yellowjackets’ Jane Widdop, plus Cassandra Naud, Joel McHale, Justin Long, Jess McLeod, and Ginger Snaps actress Katharine Isabelle.

Here’s the synopsis: 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.

RLJE and Shudder will release It’s A Wonderful Knife into theaters on November 10th.
