Based on the short film of the same name, writer-director Jeremiah Kipp’s Slapface is coming to Shudder next month—and a robe-clad monster stalks the trailer.
In Slapface: “After the death of his mother, Lucas, a loner who lives in a rundown home with his brother Tom, regularly seeks solace in the nearby woods. With his only ‘friends’ being a group of female bullies, he keeps to himself most of the time. But, after a strange encounter with an inhuman monster, Lucas begins to withdraw from others. When the two reach a tentative trust, a bizarre friendship is born, and Lucas is swept up in a series of primal adventures.”
August Maturo (The Nun), Mike Manning (Teen Wolf), Dan Hedaya (The Hunger), Mirabelle Lee (Blood Ties), Lukas Hassel (The Blacklist), Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete), Bianca D’Ambrosio (The Bay), and Chiara D’Ambrosio (The Bay) star in Slapface, which creeps onto Shudder in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on February 3rd. Check out the trailer below.
