Shudder acquires Canadian horror-comedy ‘Slaxx’

by Phil Wheat

Produced by The Horror Collective parent company Entertainment Squad, Slaxx is the latest collaboration between Anne-Marie Gélinas and Shaked Berenson, who brought the world 2015’s cult hit Turbo Kid – and tells the story of a possessed pair of jeans which come to life and terrorizes the staff of a trendy, vapid clothing boutique!

Set to have it’s world premiere at this year’s Fantasia Film Festival, Slaxx has been acquired by Shudder and will debut on the streaming service in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand next year.

Slaxx directed by Elza Kaphert, who co-wrote the film alongside Patricia Gomez, and stars Romane Denis (True North), Brett Donahue (Total Recall), Sehar Bhojani (The Handmaid’s Tale), Kenny Wong (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), Tianna Nori (Letterkenny), and Hanneke Talbot (Ready Or Not), sees a possessed pair of jeans 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.
