Something even scarier than the prices is lurking in a trendy clothing store.
SLAXX, directed by Elza Kephart, will be streamed exclusively on Shudder beginning this Thursday, March 18 in the U.S., UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as via the Shudder offering within the AMC+ bundle where available. Kephart wrote SLAXX with Patricia Gomez Zlatar, who produced with Anne-Marie Gélinas (TURBO KID, RADIUS), and the cast is headed by Romane Denis, Brett Donahue, Sehar Bhojani, Kenny Wong, Tianna Nori, Jessica Bornais Hill, Erica Anderson, Hanneke Talbot and Stephen Bogaert. Blood Brothers FX (BLOOD QUANTUM) created the film’s creature–a pair of killer blue jeans–and its victims. The synopsis: “A possessed pair of jeans is brought to life to punish the unscrupulous practices of a trendy clothing company. Shipped to the company’s flagship store, Slaxx proceeds to wreak carnage on staff locked in overnight to set up the new collection.” See our review of SLAXX here and an interview with Kephart here.
