‘It’s a Wonderful Knife’ Opens to $600,000 in Just 923 Theaters

From RLJE Films and Shudder, the Christmas slasher It’s a Wonderful Knife is now playing in theaters, putting a slasher movie twist on the holiday classic It’s a Wonderful Life.

Here in the United States, It’s a Wonderful Knife was released in just 923 theaters over the weekend, and the holiday horror film posted impressive numbers at the box office.

It’s a Wonderful Knife slashed into $605,110 in those 923 theaters in its debut weekend, a number that’s quite respectable for a low budget slasher playing in limited release.

No word yet on the at-home release plan for the film. Stay tuned for more.

The Christmas slasher comes from writer Michael Kennedy (Freaky) and director Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls). Kennedy wrote on Twitter over the weekend, “Thanks to all my fellow Weirdos for seeing and enjoying and spreading some It’s a Wonderful Knife cheer this opening weekend. The movie is for you and all us freaks and queers and losers and loners.”

The story is 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.

It’s a Wonderful Knife stars Jane Widdop (“Yellowjackets”) in the lead role of ‘Winnie Carruthers’, with Joel McHale (“Community”) set to play Winnie’s father ‘David’ and Justin Long (Barbarian) playing the town’s patron ‘Mr Waters’. Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), Jess McLeod (One of Us Is Lying) and Cassandra Naud (Influencer) also star.

Michael Kennedy wrote the script and also serves as Producer.
