Exclusive Clip from Slacker Horror RELAXER Accepts an Outlandish Challenge

It’s been over a week since we shared the trailer and release information for Joel Potrykus’ latest “slacker horror” movie, Relaxer. Steeped with 90s-era nostalgia and Y2K paranoia, it looks both extremely entertaining and vastly gross. Relaxer was a smash at SXSW in 2018 and will enjoy a limited theatrical release beginning this Friday, March 22nd, via Oscilloscope Laboratories.

Today, Dread Central is tickled pink to share an exclusive clip from Relaxer, embedded at the top of the article. Watch as Abbie (played by Joshua Burge) excepts a most unusual challenge.

You can also give the full trailer and synopsis for Relaxer a spin below. Warning: You might want to grab a puke bucket first!

With the impending Y2K apocalypse fast approaching, Abbie is faced with the ultimate challenge – the unbeatable level 256 on Pac-Man – and he can’t get off the couch until he conquers it. A survival story set in a living room.

In addition to Burge, Relaxer stars David Dastmalchian, Andre Hyland, and Mahfuz Rahman.
