For horror enthusiasts, the timing is always right for a dose of hack-n-slash. Amidst the mistletoe and Mariah Carey’s festive tunes, those craving a bloodier holiday treat are in for a delight with this year’s Christmas slasher, “It’s a Wonderful Knife.”

Penned by Michael Kennedy of Freaky fame and directed by Tyler MacIntyre, the film begins as a reverse slasher ending, blending Hallmark sweetness with Winnie’s family festivities. The twist introduces a villainous real estate mogul, Henry Waters (played by Justin Long), adorned in a sleek angel costume, setting the stage for a showdown with Winnie (Jane Widdop), our final girl.

Fast forward a year, and Winnie, haunted by the trauma, wishes she was never born. The wish comes true, unleashing a timeline where the murders persist, and Waters becomes the Mayor of Angel Falls. Teaming up with loner Bernie (Jess McLeod), Winnie must correct her wish or accept a reality where murder is alarmingly common.

“It’s a Wonderful Knife” cleverly plays on the Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” and explores the aftermath of a slasher scenario, a rarity in the genre. While the townsfolk accept rampant murder, Jane Widdop’s solid performance and Jess McLeod’s standout portrayal of Bernie add depth to the film.

However, the film grapples with tone inconsistency, oscillating between styles and genres without a seamless connection. Despite its entertaining aspects, “It’s a Wonderful Knife” falls short of establishing itself as a holiday horror classic.

Despite unfulfilled promises, the film, starring Jane Widdop, Jess McLeod, Justin Long, and Joel McHale, offers an intriguing concept and enjoyable leads. While it may not reach classic status, it serves as a diverting alternative to the usual holiday fare. “It’s a Wonderful Knife” hits theaters on November 10, 2023.
