Bloody Knuckles is a 2014 Canadian comedy horror film, the first feature film directed by Matt O'Mahoney. It stars Adam Boys and Kasey Ryne Mazak and received its premiere at a late-night showing at the first Other Worlds Austin festival.

Plot

Travis is an underground comics artist one of whose works depicts Chinatown boss Leonard Fong as a gangster responsible for a teenager's death by rat poison. Fong cuts off Travis's drawing hand, which rises from the sewer to take revenge and also beats up its former owner. A subplot involving Homo Dynamous, a gay man wearing leather bondage gear who comes to life from Travis' comic to assist him and his hand, critiques censoriousness in modern Canadian culture.[1][2]
