IFC Midnight will release the horror/mystery/thriller, KNIVES AND SKIN in theaters and available on VOD and Digital HD on December 6, 2019.
KNIVES AND SKIN is written and directed by Jennifer Reeder (Signature Move, “Crystal Lake”) and stars Marika Engelhardt (House of Purgatory, Come As You Are), Audrey Francis (“Empire,” Signature Move), and Tim Hopper (Vanilla Sky).
What happened to Carolyn Harper? Part suburban nightmare, part neon-soaked teenage fever dream, this tantalizing mystery traces the wave of fear and distrust that spreads across a small Midwestern town in the wake of a high school girl’s mysterious disappearance. As the loneliness and darkness lurking beneath the veneer of everyday life gradually comes to light, a collective awakening seems to overcome the town’s teenage girls—gathering in force until it can no longer be contained. Unfolding in a hallucinatory haze of lushly surreal images, Knives and Skin is a one-of-a-kind coming-of-age noir that haunts like a half-remembered dream.
