What happened to Carolyn Harper? A wave of fear spreads among traumatized town residents after the high school girl’s disappearance. As the darkness lurking beneath everyday life gradually reveals itself, a sense of awakening overcomes the town’s teenagers and unusual coping techniques develop.
Dario Argento’s expressionism meets Twin Peaks’ small-town vibes in this impressive, refreshingly weird drama from American writer-director Jennifer Reeder. An offbeat teenage horror imbued with magical realism and steeped in macabre humor, Knives and Skin is a bold and proudly feminist mystery.
