Kids and aliens seem to be a thing here in the final quarter of 2022 but SLASH/BACK looks like it might be packing a little more juice than the handful of other choices heading our way in the next few months. Trailer first – info second.
“Set in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the majestic mountains of Baffin Island in the Arctic Ocean, Slash/Back opens as the village wakes up to a typical summer day. No School, no cool boys (well… except one), and 24-hour sunlight. But for Maika and her ragtag friends, the usual summer is suddenly not in the cards when they discover an alien invasion threatening their hometown.
“These teenagers have been underestimated their whole lives but, using makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, they show the aliens you don’t f*** with the girls from Pang.”
The film stars Tasiana Shirley, Alexis Vincent-Wolfe, Nalajoss Ellsworth, Chelsea Prusky and is directed by Nyla Innuksuk.
SLASH/BACK is hitting Theaters, On Demand & Digital on October 21st, 2022.
