A truly bone-chilling shocker from hot new director Alexandre Aja, Switchblade Romance will be out to own on DVD from January 31st and is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
Switchblade Romance stars Cecile de France (Around the World in 80 Days) and Maïwenn (The Fifth Element, Leon) as Marie and Alexia, two inseparable friends who embark on a nightmarish journey into the depths of terror, one flesh-crawling evening. Fresh from Luc Besson's successful Europa stable, Switchblade Romance drips with palpable tension and bloody carnage.
Writers Aja and Levasseur conceived Switchblade Romance as a homage to the movies that marked their youth and the film is not afraid to wear its influences on its sleeve; The Evil Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Shining, Maniac and Halloween. Alexandre Aja, the movie's co-writer and director explains: "The subject matter is quite simple. We are 100% in the genre movie register. We have one aim: to scare people!" Alexandre Aja is currently filming a much anticipated re-make of The Hills Have Eyes.
