PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY WRAPS ON TOXIC RELATIONSHIP HORROR “KILL YOUR LOVER” WITH SPECIAL EFFECTS MAKE UP ARTIST FROM “WINNIE-THE-POOH: BLOOD AND HONEY”
Married co-directing team Switchblade Cinema, Alix Austin and Keir Siewert (AK), have just wrapped on their debut horror feature KILL YOUR LOVER: A psychological drama with a punk edge and skin-crawling body horror, where ‘Blue Valentine’ meets ‘The Fly’.
Known for their stylized cinematography and love of practical make-up effects, Austin and Siewert have joined forces with Special Effects and Prosthetics Artist Rebecca Wheeler from the much-discussed upcoming WINNIE-THE-POOH horror (Other credits include: AQUAMAN 2, BOILING POINT).

Having previously worked with Wheeler on horror short DO NOT RESUSCITATE (linked below), AK are looking to take an even bigger and bolder swing with KILL YOUR LOVER – “Else what would be the point?”, says Austin, “we know there’s a lot of competing content out there and we know we need to cut through the white noise. With a machete if need be!”
With several ‘Best Horror’ and ‘Best FX’ awards under their belt, Switchblade Cinema are tackling the full breadth of the toxic relationship in KILL YOUR LOVER: the good, the bad and the downright ugly.
“When Dakota tries to break off her toxic relationship with Axel, it starts transforming him into a monstrous creature with increased aggression, a touch that melts skin and worst of all, he’s contagious…” Above photo still from ‘Do Not Resuscitate’
The film will feature tense horror sequences, heartbreaking interpersonal drama and creative kills alike. KILL YOUR LOVER is the epitome of the phrase ‘death by a thousand cuts’.
