Sloth Slasher Film Slotherhouse Coming From Gravitas Ventures
Gravitas Ventures is set to bring horror fans the highly anticipated horror-comedy film, Slotherhouse, directed by Matthew Goodhue. The movie, set to hit theaters nationwide this August, promises to deliver a unique blend of scares and laughs while honoring practical effects that honor the most iconic creature features in cinema per Variety‘s exclusive reveal.
“Slotherhouse” revolves around the ambitious college senior, Emily Young, who aspires to become the president of her sorority. However, things take a terrifying turn when the newly appointed mascot wreaks havoc on the sorority sisters.
Slotherhouse’s full synopsis reads:
“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 screenplay for “Slotherhouse” was penned by Bradley Fowler based on a story by Cady Lanigan. The film’s cast included Lisa Ambalavanar, Sydney Craven, Olivia Rouyre, Kelly Lynn Reiter, Bianca Beckles-Rose, Andrew Horton, Sutter Nolan, Grace Patterson, Milica Vrzić, Annamaria Serda, Rudi Rok, Tiff Stevenson, and Stefan Kapičić.
The film is produced by Lanigan, Fowler, Mark David, Dan Lanigan, Patrick D. Gillespie, Jason Sada, David Albert Pierce, Michael J. Weiss, Milan Todorović, Ryan Gibson, Joe Price, Matthew Goodhue, Jason C. Henry, and Victoria Matlock Fowler.
It’s Tusk meets Sorority Row as this horror comedy will surely bring both laughs and kills. It sounds silly but ultimately, I have all the adoration for any film that opts for practical effects and although the concept of the film seems a bit unhinged, it will surely not hold back on delivering a fun film. As we await more information and hopefully a trailer, the film will be arriving in just a short few weeks.
Slotherhouse arrives on August 30, 2023. Check out the poster below:
