    Press

    Viewers that get into the mood -- and definitely those who were seduced by You and the Night -- will find plenty to love here.

    David Ehrlich, Indiewire

    Gnarly as it can be at times, "Knife + Heart" is above all an unabashedly queer, affectionately comedic look at the pursuit of art in the unlikeliest of places.

    Peter Debruge, Variety

    A deliciously campy slasher flick exploring the dark side of desire.
