Earlier today, we were treated to the official trailer for “Slotherhouse,” a thrilling horror-comedy movie that revolves around a rather unconventional antagonist—a killer sloth. Now, for those of us who already found it hard to believe how Michael Myers could catch his victims with his slow walk while they were running, get ready to experience a whole new level of frustration with this film. The concept is both bizarre and intriguing, promising a unique and entertaining cinematic experience!
Slotherhouse is an upcoming horror/comedy film that follows the story of Emily Young, a sorority sister who adopts an adorable sloth, only to discover a series of mysterious deaths occurring around the sorority house.
As the senior year unfolds, Emily sets her sights on becoming the president of Sigma Lambda Theta, her sorority. During her campaign, she comes across an irresistibly cute sloth that captures her heart and potentially the votes of her sorority sisters. However, things take a dark turn when bodies start to pile up inside the Sigma Lambda Theta house. Emily and her sisters soon realize that their seemingly harmless house mascot, the cuddly sloth named Alpha, is responsible for the deaths. With three razor-sharp claws, this death sloth becomes a formidable threat.
Directed by Matthew Goodhue, the film features a talented cast including Lisa Ambalavanar, Sydney Craven, Olivia Rouyre, Bianca Beckles-Rose, Andrew Horton, Sutter Nolan, Grace Patterson, Milica Vrzić, Annamaria Serda, Rudi Rok, Tiff Stevenson, Stefan Kapičić, and Kelly Lynn Reiter.
“Slotherhouse” evokes memories of other creature classics like “Thankskilling,” where a seemingly innocent animal becomes an unlikely and terrifying villain. The tagline, “Don’t rush, die slow,” adds to the anticipation for the film’s release at the end of August.
Mark your calendars, as “Slotherhouse” is set to premiere in theaters on August 30th. For an optimal viewing experience, be sure to check out our list of the Best TVs and Best Soundbars when the film becomes available for streaming.
