Knife + HeartUn Couteau dans la Coeur
FRA 2018 110’ DIRECTED BY: Yann Gonzalez SCREENPLAY BY: Yann Gonzalez, Christiano Mangione PRODUCED BY: Charles Gillibert
A perverse slasher in the “giallo” horror subgenre, supported by neon pomp in baroque form. The main antagonist is a man in a leather mask, who successively murders the members of the gay porn industry. His murder weapon is a massive rubber penis with a retractable blade. Despite its atmosphere, it’s not a typical LGBT work – similarly, horror elements are used sparingly and cautiously, escaping any obvious classification.
