Poster & “First Look” Images from Upcoming Horror Film SLAPFACE

The official poster for the upcoming indie horror/thriller Slapface was released recently, along with sneak-peak shots from the film. The poster (bottom) features the bloody tear-streaked face of August Maturo (The Nun, Girl Meets World) as Lucas.

The first images (below) feature Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete) with Mike C. Manning (Teen Wolf) having an intimate moment as Tom and Anna, and the second image features Dan Hedaya (The Usual Suspects) as Sheriff Thurston, from the film.

Slapface follows the story of Lucas (Maturo) who is being raised by his alcoholic older brother Tom (Manning) after the loss of their parents. Lucas is a troubled and bullied young boy who befriends a monster in the nearby woods and the two develop a dangerous relationship. Barer plays Anna, an outsider in their small town who becomes romantically involved with Tom and who grows increasingly concerned about the welfare of Tom’s little brother. Hedaya plays Sheriff Thurston, a man who has a history with Tom and Lucas’s deceased mother and who feels a responsibility to look out for the well-being of her orphaned children. 

Slapface also stars Lukas Hassel, Mirabelle Lee, Bianca D’Ambrosio, and Chiara D’Ambrosio. Lee plays Moriah, the love interest of Lucas, while the D’Ambrosio Twins play Donna and Rose, the town bullies. Hassell plays the Monster, a role he reprised from the short film.

The film is produced by Artisha Mann Cooper, Mike C. Manning, and Joe Benedetto, and is co-produced by Nick Theurer.┬áThe film is currently in post-production and is aiming for a late 2020 release.
