Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.08.14] Canada horror comedy

Ever wonder what would happen if Thing dragged one of the Adams kids through a seedy underworld of dirty comics, contraband pesticides and underground sex clubs? That's kind of what Bloody Knuckles is about.

The feature film debut of writer/director Matt O'Mahoney stars Adam Boys as Travis Warner, an underground comic book artist whose latest comic offends a Chinatown crime boss who retaliates by cutting off the artist's hand. Unable to draw, Travis descends into a drunken stupor and is then dragged out of it when his severed limb returns from the great beyond and drags him through a seedy adventure in search of revenge.

It sounds ridiculous and I'm sure it'll be ridiculous. In the best way possible. In a press release for the movie, O'Mahoney explained that the movie is a response to censorship and specifically the selfcensorship following the Danish Muhammad cartoons controversy. "It forecast such a bleak future for freedom of speech. So, I wanted to make a film that addressed that without being too heavyhanded. No pun intended!"

Bloody Knuckles which will have it's world premiere at Fantasia in the newly minted "Fantasia Underground" program and leading up to the premiere, we've got a first look at the revenge-seeking-hand and the first poster.
