Hot summers make people do insane things that they normally wouldn’t do. Sweating is a bitch. The mean streets get meaner. Instead of getting your shiv out the next time someone looks at you the wrong way, you could satisfy your bloodlust with Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks. Just the name should be enough to keep you calm, but not too calm, as then you might be crossing genres in slacker flicks, which is more Richard Linklater’s territory, not Sam Raimi’s. What about slasher slacker films? Is that a film area worth exploring? I think it probably is.
These are some things you might want to think about and there’s no better place to do that than in August when it’s hot as finuck and you are out there in a crowd listening to Avey Tare and his Slasher Flicks bug out hard and bug out live. Catch the video for Enter the Slasher House highlight “Strange Colores” below, then check the tour dates and remember just how freak-nasty things could get for you in August.
