With a name like Slapface, you know this better be a good monster movie.
Shudder is premiering the original creature feature Feb. 3, and a frightening trailer and poster for the film–courtesy of firstshowing.net–can be seen on this page.
Slapface–which took home the Best Audience Award for Best Horror/Thriller Film at last year’s Cinequest Film Festival–follows a loner named Lucas who, after the death of his mother, lives in a rundown house with his brother Tom and “seeks solace in the nearby woods.”
With his only companions being a group of female bullies, Lucas keeps to himself but, “after a strange encounter with an inhuman monster, he really withdraws from others,” according to the official synopsis. “When the two reach a tentative trust, a bizarre friendship is born, and Lucas is swept up in a series of primal adventures.”
Slapface–written and directed by Jeremiah Kipp (Black Wake)–stars August Maturo (The Nun), Mike Manning (Teen Wolf), Dan Hedaya (Alien Resurrection), Mirabelle Lee (Blood Ties), Lukas Hassel (The Black Room), Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete), Bianca D’Ambrosio (The Bay) and Chiara D’Ambrosio (I Am Mortal).
