Bloody Knuckles, Matt OMahoneys festival favorite about a young comic book artist and his rotting severed hand with a mind of its own, has been announced for an October 20th release from Artsploitation Films.
In the Canadian indie, Travis, an underground comic book artist with a penchant for obscene caricatures upsets a thin-skinned Chinatown crime lord, who responds by cutting off the young mans hand. A despondent and now alcoholic Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression. Will criminality reign supreme? Will Travis give up his acerbic pen and live alone as a bitter one-handed man? Not if the slightly rotted hand, now alive and determined to exact revenge, teems up with his former body and a masked S&M gay superhero to rid the city of evil.
Bloody Knuckles, which won acclaim out of the 2014 Fantasia International Film Festivl and more, will be out this fall on DVD, Blu and VOD. Find the trailer, which lays out a punkish, anti-PC splatter film, below.
