The horror comedy Slotherhouse, about a killer sloth terrorizing a sorority house, will receive a theatrical release in August
Last month, we got a look at the trailer for the killer gopher horror comedy Caddy Hack, which is set to make its premiere at Kevin Smith’s Smodcastle theatre in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey on August 11th. (With a home video release to follow in October.) Now Variety has broken the news that there’s another killer animal horror comedy that will be getting some theatrical play next month: coming our way from Gravitas Ventures and Iconic Events Releasing is the killer sloth movie Slotherhouse, which will reach theatres nationwide on August 30th!
Directed by Matthew Goodhue from a screenplay by Bradley Fowler, who crafted the story with Cady Lanigan, Slotherhouse centers on college senior Emily Young, who aims to be voted president of her sorority. When she adopts an adorable sloth, she realizes the animal can serve as the house’s new mascot and help her win votes, dubbing the animal Alpha. The new pet is a beloved addition to the sorority house until a series of deaths point toward the sloth as the prime murder suspect. The film becomes a survival story of sisters versus sloth as the girls wonder if they can make it out of Sigma Lambda Theta alive (sloths, of course, are not known for being fleet of foot).
The film stars Lisa Ambalavanar, Sydney Craven, Olivia Rouyre, Kelly Lynn Reiter (who faced a killer shark in Maneater), Bianca Beckles-Rose, Andrew Horton, Sutter Nolan, Grace Patterson, Milica Vrzić, Annamaria Serda, Rudi Rok, Tiff Stevenson, and Stefan Kapičić.
Goodhue, Fowler, and Lanigan produced Slotherhouse with Mark David, Dan Lanigan, Patrick D. Gillespie, Jason Sada, David Albert Pierce, Michael J. Weiss, Milan Todorović, Ryan Gibson, Joe Price, Jason C. Henry, and Victoria Matlock Fowler.
Iconic Events’ Nick Royak provided the following statement: “Slotherhouse is a movie that embodies the reckless abandon genre films can bring to the table. It scratches the sloth itch we didn’t know we had! Our team is thrilled to work on a project that really goes for it, claws and all.“
Cady Lanigan added, “Slotherhouse was inspired by iconic cinema with a dedication to practical effects. It’s an homage to our favorite creature features and slashers with a FURocious horror icon for the modern world. Slotherhouse is simply bonkers.“
I’m looking forward to seeing a trailer for this one, but I have to admit that I’m already sold on it. Yes, I want to watch a movie about a killer sloth terrorizing a sorority house.
