Mysterious woods, witches, an unlikely friendship and a game called Slapface. It’s all in the upcoming Shudder Original film Slapface, which is out on the platform next month.
Check out the creepy new poster above and the trailer here…
After the death of his mother, Lucas, a loner who lives in a rundown home with his brother Tom, regularly seeks solace in the nearby woods in Slapface. With his only ‘friends’ being a group of female bullies, he keeps to himself most of the time. But, after a strange encounter with an inhuman monster, Lucas begins to withdraw from others. When the two reach a tentative trust, a bizarre friendship is born, and Lucas is swept up in a series of primal adventures.
Written and directed by Jeremiah Kipp (Black Wake) based on his short film of the same title, the film stars August Maturo (The Nun), Mike Manning (Teen Wolf), Dan Hedaya (The Usual Suspects), Mirabelle Lee (Blood Ties), Lukas Hassel, and Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete), Bianca D’Ambrosio (The Bay), Chiara D’Ambrosio (I Am Mortal).
Slapface will premier exclusively on Shudder on Thursday 3 February.
