SLASH: Alien Erotica In Trailer For The Indie Hit
Teen Wolf star Michael Johnston takes a dive into a very different part of online culture than afforded by his regular gig with a starring role in Clay Liford's Slash. The indie comedy following a young man dipping into the world of erotic fan fiction was a big hit at the SXSW Film Festival before launching on an extensive international festival run and with the US release of the film now scheduled for early December the first proper trailer has arrived online.
Neil is a questioning high school freshman whose main social outlet is the steamy erotic fan fiction he writes about Vanguard, the brawny, galaxy-hopping hero of a popular sci-fi franchise. When Neil's stories are exposed in class he is mortified, but the effortlessly-cool Julia comes to his defense. An erotic fan fic writer herself, Julia pushes Neil to publish his stories to an online “adult” forum, where they quickly grab the attention of the site moderator, Denis. When Neil is invited to present his work at a comic con live-read event, he must face the fact that Denis’ interest in him may be more than simply professional… perhaps like his own feelings for Julia.
Hannah Marks, Michael Ian Black, Missi Pyle, Jessie Ennis, Sarah Ramos, Peter Vack, Lucas Neff, Tishuan Scott, and Robert Longstreet also star. Check out the trailer below!
