The clothes come back to haunt

Slaxx Directed by Elza Kephart. Written by Patricia Gomez and Elza Kephart

Slaxx is about a pair of possessed pants who go on a rampage in a locked down boutique clothing store. That's right I said it. Sentient evil pants. They make your butt look terrific and then consume your flesh at the same time. What will they think of next? I will say naturally this completely bonkers concept drew me in. It caught my wife's attention as well. It is only 77 minutes. I'll watch almost anything once. I have to say this movie is a hoot. The pants effects are terrific. They move on their own. They believably move around and in the end credits they reveal the secret for that. It's honestly quite brilliant. There's a scene where the pants viciously eat the hands of somebody. Blood is spurting everywhere like a wild out of control gusher. The pants are growling like an actual animal. I laughed so far. Giggling like a silly little boy. This scene reminded me a bit of the Chuck E Cheese scene in Clown where the Cloywn is eating the kids in the ball pit. It was a gruesome delight. This is a movie that naturally knows it needs to be heightened in perception and reality. The store called CCC has employees who are forced to buy the latest and greatest merch. My wife mentioned how much it felt like a pyramid scheme. The company is bleeding its employees dry in the name of fashion. The employees are hyper focused on their sales and their jobs to the point of not having basic common courtesy to Libby, the new employee. This opening for the new collection is important. They've got a Youtube influencer coming to review it. All hands on deck. The pants are at a buffet. Romane Denis is Libby and she acquits herself well. She is the conduit to the madness. I was genuinely invested in her plight. Same with Sehar Bhojani as Shruti. She was a connection to the pants that you will not see coming. I might be giving away too much so I'll leave the remainder of the plot alone. The only real issue this insanity has is there is not enough story to successfully engage the entire time. The movie does get bogged down after the initial massacre. It realizes that it doesn't have much else to say before the ending it has inevitably chosen. It definitely could have been a strong short but I understand also the reason it wasn't. It is a movie that is strongly skewering fashion culture and the lies corporations tell us. The evils they perpetrated for the easiest way to make money comes back to haunt them. You can't treat companies in a cult like revelatory way. Libby comes into her new job excited. This culture is going to give her a wake up call. The selfishness and carelessness leads to the pants and their massacre. This is a wild ride. I do recommend this. Be prepared for the silliness that comes ingrained with the concept. It is certainly a satire in that regard but the pants coming to life is magnificently done. I give this movie a B.
