SLICE


"When a pizza delivery driver is murdered on the job, the city searches for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf?"


SLICE is an American horror comedy film, written and directed by Austin Vesely (with his first feature film). The film stars Chance (Chance the Rapper) Bennett, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Chris Parnell (SNL), Paul Scheer (Funny or Die), and Rae Gray (Fear the Walking Dead).


SLICE is a brilliant piece of horror mish mash that is both fun and different. Sure there are a lot of projects I can compare it to like Midnight in Texas with all its ghosts, witches and a werewolf. It's reminiscence of Hot Fuzz in its final outcome and though it may not be as funny, it has plenty of belly laughs to keep you going. A24 Studios usually walks a very thin line of worthwhile horror but SLICE is an entertaining departure and I hope they bring us more. The opening murder alone where the pizza delivery guy gets his throat slit while a scared stiff ghost watches is horror comedy gold.



Currently available via VOD, SLICE will be released on DVD on January 29, 2019.
