A film to keep an eye out for next Tuesday is the gore driven one handed feature BLOODY KNUCKLES. This festival darling is headed to home entertainment just in time for Halloween and will be on DVD, Blu ray and on demand. The flick follows the dismembered hand of a cartoonist that is seeking revenge on those that have done him harm. Artsploitation Films will distribute BLOODY KNUCKLES on October 27th. Read ahead for all the details on the film and enjoy the off the wall trailer.
A cult film in the making, Matt O’s cheesily sick Bloody Knuckles has been a film festival favorite and has been described as “Vulgar, violent and very funny”, “Puerile, juvenile, grotesque fun”,“A bloody, funny blast!” and “A five finger exercise in fun frights”.
The film follows a determinedly offensive cartoonist who gets his hand chopped off by a humorless crime lord. But the severed hand comes back to life (think of it as a demented Resurrection parable) to seek revenge on evil-doers. With plenty of dark humor and eye-popping violence, Bloody Knuckles makes for a totally un-PC, bloody good time.
Travis, an underground comic book artist with a penchant for obscene caricatures, upsets a Chinatown crime lord who responds by cutting off the young man’s hand. As a despondent, drunken Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression, his decomposing limb returns to life and is determined to exact revenge. Soon, Travis and his mischievous appendage join forces with a masked S&M superhero to rid the city of evil. Filmmaker Matt O.’s debut feature strips Canada of its “land of nice” image with this deliriously offensive, gory, and happily un-PC horror-comedy!
