Switchblade Cinema is a production company founded by directing team A/K: Alix Austin & Keir Siewert - self-professed weirdos and international mutts, hailing from the UK, the US and Switzerland.

Their toxic relationship body horror debut feature KILL YOUR LOVER will start its festival circuit in 2023. The film is backed by Douglas Cox (HOST) as an Executive Producer. The film was inspired by their love of the French Extreme & South Korean cinema.

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.
