New Horror Movie Slaxx Follows A Pair Of Jeans That Come Alive And Try To Kill People

The movie "Slaxx" centers on a pair of jeans that become possessed and try to kill the workers of a trendy fashion store.


The horror movie streaming company Shudder's latest original film is called "Slaxx," and it follows the story of a pair of jeans that wants to kill people.

The jeans become possessed and come to life to exact revenge upon a "trendy" clothing company. The jeans are sent to the company's flagship store and start to pick off workers one-by-one as they work overnight to get the new collection ready for display. It's sort of like Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, except the pants want to rip your fingers off and kill you to death instead of reunite childhood friends.

Slaxx stars Romane Denis (Slut in a Good Way), Brett Donahue (Private Eyes), Sehar Bhojani (The Handmaid's Tale), and Stephen Bogaert (The Umbrella Academy). It's directed by Elza Kephart (Go in the Wilderness, Graveyard Alive) from a script from Kephart and Patricia Gomez (Gravyard Alive).

The effects work--and there is a lot because this is a movie about jeans that come to life--was done by Blood Brothers FX. This company previously worked on Turbo Kid, Blood Quantum, and Ravenous.

Slaxx premieres March 18 on Shudder. It's just one of many new movies coming to Shudder this month--check out the full rundown of Shudder for March 2021 here. You can sign up to Shudder here.
