Dial M For Marinara

I am so in love with the idea of a slasher movie called Slice that's about a killer killing pizza delivery boys that I don't even know where to go from the top - I just want to make happy noises. It's brilliant! Simple and brilliant and perfect - I hope the folks making this just got out of the way of their simple brilliant idea and made the best Slice they could make. And throwing Joe Keery and his glorious head of hair in there...

... ain't hurting. The film also stars Zazie Beetz, Chance the Rapper, and Y'lan Noel (who looks like this, you should recall) and it's directed by Austin Vesely, who I guess has directed a bunch of Chance's videos. The movie looks nuts, y'all - like Sorry to Bother You meets Scream? I don't know, just watch:

A24 also dropped the poster, which I also love:

No date on the movie yet but it's safe to assume given all this PR material it'll be this fall, I think. Anyway any horror nerd worth their salt should immediately be reminded of the scene in 1982's insanely strange Slumber Party Massacre (the legit feminist slasher movie written by feminist icon Rita Mae Brown) where the pizza boy gets murdered and the teen girls go ahead and eat the pizza he's delivered... from on top of his corpse. Classic!

Oh I know about Beef! I keep waiting for word on what's happening with it, it's been ages since it was announced.
