Switchblade Cinema (formerly Hydraholix) is a production company, consisting of film collective AK: Alix Austin & Keir Siewert - horror and genre films are the name of the game! 

They were selected to be part of FrightFest and Queensbury Picture's NEW BLOOD '22 initiative.  The team are also the recipient of the Raimi Productions Scholarship for the Rogue Studios program as featured in FANGORIA.

The team are in post-production with their debut feature film 'KILL YOUR LOVER', where a toxic relationship meets skin-crawling body horror. Their first feature is inspired by their love of the French Extreme and South Korean cinema.


Notable work so far includes co-directing the London segment for Horror Anthology 'ISOLATION', alongside Larry Fessenden, Bobby Roe and Dennie Gordon, which premiered at Frightfest and Screamfest 2021 and featured in Variety, Bloody Disgusting and more.


Previous work Best Horror Short Winning 'RETCH' (premiered on ALTER) and multiple award-winning 'PORTRAIT', with newest horror short ‘SUCKER’ having won Best FX and Outstanding Directing and Producing.
