Horror slasher Slaxx features one of the more unique antagonists in movie history – a pair of perfectly-fitted jeans.
Generally, the term ‘killer jeans’ is used in a complimentary fashion, to compliment somebody for sartorial excellence in the field of form-fitting denim. Soon though, the phrase will take on a much darker turn with the release of Slaxx, an unhinged horror comedy that involves a a fashion retailer in lockdown, lots of good-looking but vacuous young people and yes, a pair of killer jeans… that actually kill.
If you’re a fan of Peter Strickland’s In Fabric, the rather unsettling tale of a killer dress, then Slaxx might be the movie for you. They’d certainly make a perfect double-bill, although how you’d feel about wearing clothes again afterwards, we can only guess. The tone of Slaxx looks much lighter than Strickland’s film however, with some gross-out horror to boot.
The film is directed by Elza Kephart and will debut on Shudderand will be available on March 18th.
