Girl with a Straight Razor – First Trailer from Darkside Releasing on Vimeo.

She wakes. Walks. She kills. Driven by an instinct she doesn’t understand. And guided by visions of a ghostly woman in black, only one thing is certain. The blade needs to feed. And the blade needs blood.

Girl with a Straight Razor is the first original genre production from Canadian horror and exploitation film distributor Darkside Releasing. Along with their new partner, Moleman Entertainment, this is a joint effort to produce and distribute sophisticated independent low-budget genre pictures. Ones that emphasize style and substance while also delivering more visceral horror elements.

The official poster art for Girl with a Straight Razor was painted by noted British comic and graphic novel artist Nick Percival (Judge Dredd, Hellraiser, Marvel Zombies). Marc Schoenbach at Sadist Art Designs created the poster design.

“I consider my work to be a kind of ‘elevated exploitation’ and Girl with a Straight Razor is no exception,” says Alexander, who wrote, produced, directed, and composed much of the score.

“Once again, I focus on a female protagonist and sympathetic ‘human monster’ who is trapped in a sort of isolated reality and finds salvation through violence. This time, the isolation was a given, seeing as the picture was carefully produced during the pandemic with minimal cast and crew. The intimacy of the process only added to the texture of the film, really.”

Darkside Releasing will release Girl with a Straight Razor internationally this summer on multiple formats and platforms. Look for it on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on August 17th.
