We got some info in our inbox today about another new indie film you’ll be hearing a lot about soon called Slices. Instead of being a standard narrative, though, this one’s an anthology in the vein of Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.
In Slices, five directors will tell five different stories, including “The Exterminator”, directed by Vito Trabucco, which is described as in the style of Saw or Hostel. It centers on a big business CEO who gets kidnapped and tortured by one of his own henchman. Then there’s “The Range”, directed by Lance Polland, a period piece set in the Old West. It features 3 Confederate Soldiers on the run who come face to face with flesh eating zombies. “Turnout”, directed by Lenny Lenox, is about a young couple and their friend out hiking in the mountains when they start getting killed off by a madman. “Night Scream” comes from director Neil McCurry and is a tale about a blood thirsty female Vampire who stumbles upon a house of unsuspecting college kids. Finally there’s “Dead Letters” from Steven Richards; a yarn about an book author who still carries a torch for his dead wife and discovers a way to reanimate her when he receives a mysterious package in the mail.
The film will be premiering at The Mint in LA on November 8th with a party being thrown by the Slices team and the one and only Troma, so you know that, if nothing else, there’s going to be a helluva lot of scantily clad ladies!
The poster you see on your right was designed by Oddtospy FX man and “>100 Tears director Marcus Koch, who, in case you hadn’t heard me say it before, is a badass! Get more info at the official Slices site!
