Whether it’s a grassroots campaign or a dump, A24 is very quietly delivering Austin Vesley‘s pizza-themed horror film Slice into limited theaters next Monday, on September 10th (get tickets here). The director made the announcement via Twitter where he revealed the dates and locations, and promised ticketing links within the next few hours. This will e a one day only simulcast throughout the country, which means a VOD and home video date are forthcoming. Ouch.
I’m told LA, NYC, and CHI tickets will be live within the hour, sorry for the difficulties! ATL now available along with theeeeese places: pic.twitter.com/hStVfVILxp

Slice is a new horror slasher that stars Chance the Rapper, with Zazie Beetz, Paul Scheer, and Will Brill (Eyes Of My Mother, “The OA”). It follows a pizza delivery driver who is murdered on the job, leaving the city searching for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf?
“In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Beetz and Chance the Rapper) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree.“
“It’s a city where ghosts and humans come together; there’s a ghost town and a regular town,” producer Brett Hays said last year during filming. “It just kind pokes fun and has fun with those genres.”
The trailer reveals that Perfect Pizza is built on top of the gateway to hell and that pizza delivery men and women are being hunted. Ironically (or maybe not), the movie appears to be loaded up with double the cheese, but also looks delicious.
