Knife After Dark is a horror film heard advertised on the radio in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, parodying slasher films of the early 1980s. The movie tells the story of a young teenager who goes on a killing spree, and is rated "R for Retarded". On Pressing Issues, Jan Brown mentions that she won't let her children watch the movie.
- A line in the trailer, "I didn't know it was hockey season", appears to pay reference to the Friday the 13th films, where the main antagonist wears a hockey mask.
- It is also worth noting that in 1986 (the year Vice City takes place) Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives was released.
