After screening at last year’s Cannes and Fantastic Fest, Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive trailer and poster premiere for Yann Gonzalez’s second feature film, Knife+Heart, which is set to open in New York theaters March 15th and also in Los Angeles on March 22nd (additional dates to follow).
In the film, Vanessa Paradis portrays a ’70s gay porn producer whose productions are stalked by a masked killer.
“Paris, Summer 1979. Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis) produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald. But one of her actors is brutally murdered and Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down.”
Trace reviewed Knife+Heart out of the Fantastic Fest premiere and called it “gay porn meets Giallo slasher,” adding that it’s “a gleefully trashy exploitation film with a heart of gold that deserves a place in the queer horror hall of fame.”
Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s the film is described as an “ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.”
