A unique new creature is coming to scare and amuse the pants off you.

Shudder has announced that it will stream SLAXX exclusively beginning March 18 in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as via the Shudder offering within the AMC+ bundle where available. Elza Kephart (GRAVEYARD ALIVE) directed from a script she wrote with Patricia Gomez Zlatar, who produced with Anne-Marie Gélinas (TURBO KID, RADIUS); Romane Denis, Brett Donahue, Sehar Bhojani, Kenny Wong, Tianna Nori, Jessica Bornais Hill, Erica Anderson, Hanneke Talbot and Stephen Bogaert star, and Blood Brothers FX (BLOOD QUANTUM) created the killer pants 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.”
