Last Halloween, A24 released a teaser trailer for director Austin Vesely’s horror comedy SLICE, and while the film still doesn’t have a specific release date, just a vague promise that it will be out this fall, a full trailer has now arrived online

Set in an alternate reality where ghosts and werewolves are commonplace, SLICE stars Chance “the Rapper” Bennett, DEADPOOL 2’s Zazie Beetz, Joe Keery of Stranger Things, Paul Scheer, Chris Parnell, Will Brill, and Rae Gray. The official synopsis: 

In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper in a wild film debut) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree. 

A while back, Vesely did an interview where he revealed that Chance the Rapper’s character is 

Dax Lycander, an ex-Chinese delivery food driver who also happens to be a werewolf. When a pizza delivery boy is murdered, the film’s fictional city suspects Lycander of the crime because of his spotted past. 

A “surreal and comedic” monster mash, SLICE seems like fun to me. I look forward to seeing it, whenever its release date may be. Give the trailer a view below and see if this is a film you’d like to watch this fall.
