As you can tell from the title, it’s a send-up of Christmastime classic It’s a Wonderful Life, and director Tyler MacIntyre (Tragedy Girls) and writer Michael Kennedy (Freaky) are poised to deliver more of their darkly comic slasher fare. From the looks of this delightfully funny trailer, we’re in for an not-so silent night this winter. It’s A Wonderful Knife Official Trailer | HD | RLJE Films | Ft. Justin Long, Joel McHaleStarring the always-in-danger horror good luck charm Justin Long as a nefarious mayor, the film centers on Winnie Carruthers (Jane Widdop), whose

life is less than wonderful a year after saving her town from a killer on Christmas Eve. She wishes that she had never been born, and under the mysterious light of the sky this wish is granted. In a time where she didn’t exist, the killer would have never been caught.
