Woods filled with mystery, witches, and an unlikely friendship. Slapface, an upcoming Shudder Original film, will reveal all next month.
This is unlike any other family affair you will see this year, Slapface is downright chilling. The loner Lucas, who lives with his brother Tom in a rundown house, regularly seeks solace in the nearby woods after losing his mother. Most of the time, he keeps to himself since his only “friends” are a group of female bullies. Lucas withdraws from people after he encounters an inhuman monster. He and the monster form a strange friendship. The two become entangled in a series of primal adventures.
Based on Jeremiah Kipp’s short film of the same name, 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), and Chiara D’Ambrosio (I Am Mortal).
Patrick Ewald and Emily Gotto negotiated the deal for SLAPFACE on behalf of Epic Pictures and Dread, and Emily Gotto represented Shudder during the films acquisition.
