Twilight Knife

Twilight Knife is a slasher film advertised on the radio in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. It can be seen on a billboard upon approaching Downtown Vice City from Bayshore Avenue. On the billboard there is some black text saying "Don't shower alone, don't turn off the light." It is rated "R" for "Repulsive". Similar to another horror film, Knife After Dark, that was released two years during the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, it parodies the slasher films of the 1980s.


The film's commercial on the radio describes that it takes place in a modest fictional community named North Ridge that is menaced by a sadistic killer who enjoys killing teenage couples trying to have sexual relations in secluded areas such as a cemetery, where a young couple named Brad and Cindy are attacked by the killer with him mutilating Brad's genitals before he attacks Cindy, screaming. During the radio commercial, the killer's theme song is similar to that of Jason Voorhess from the Friday the 13th films, and makes references to them with the narrator saying, "It's best to put away the hockey masks and kitchen knives." Similar to Knife After Dark.
