‘Slash/Back’ Trailer: The Kids Fight Back In New Alien Body Horror


Nyla Innuksuk is taking on John Carpenter’s The Thing with her new film Slash/Back. Written by Innuksuk and Ryan Cavan, the film stars an incredible young Indigenous cast of badasses who are ready to do whatever is necessary to save their town from an alien invasion.

Check out the full synopsis below:

Set in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the majestic mountains of Baffin Island in the Arctic Ocean, SLASH/BACK opens as the village wakes up to a typical summer day. No School, no cool boys (well… except one), and 24-hour sunlight.  But for Maika and her ragtag friends, the usual summer is suddenly not in the cards when they discover an alien invasion threatening their hometown. These teenagers have been underestimated their whole lives but, using makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, they show the aliens you don’t f*** with the girls from Pang.

Watch the trailer:

Tasiana Shirley, Alexis Vincent-Wolfe, Nalajoss Ellsworth, and Chelsea Prusky star in the film.

Slash/Back comes to theaters, digital, and On Demand on October 21, 2022.
