Official Trailer for Supernatural Thriller ‘Slapface’ Heading to Shudder
“What happened?” “Did you see it?” Shudder has revealed the official trailer for Slapface, an indie horror film landing on the streaming service this February. It originally premiered last year at the Cinequest Film Festival and FrightFest, also stopping by Grimmfest and the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival in Belgium. A boy deals with the loss of his mother by creating a dangerous relationship with a monster rumored to live in the woods. When the two reach a tentative trust, a bizarre friendship is born, and Lucas is swept up in a series of primal adventures. The film stars August Maturo as Lucas, with Mike Manning, Dan Hedaya, Mirabelle Lee, Lukas Hassel, Libe Barer, Bianca D’Ambrosio, and Chiara D’Ambrosio. This won the Audience Award at Cinequest, and looks like a thrilling little horror film with a good twist in the story.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Jeremiah Kipp’s Slapface, direct from Shudder’s YouTube:
After the death of his mother, Lucas (August Maturo), a lonely boy who lives in a rundown home with his brother Tom, regularly seeks solace in the nearby woods. 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. Slapface is both written and directed by prolific filmmaker Jeremiah Kipp, director of the movies Creepers, The Sadist, Love & Everything in Between, Black Wake, Broken Badges, Theresa & Allison previously, as well as tons of other short films. This initially premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival last year, and also played at FrightFest. Shudder will debut Kipp’s Slapface streaming on Shudder starting February 3rd, 2022 coming soon this winter. Look scary or not?
