Movies like Slice are part of a genre that I’m now trade-marking as “Kitchen Sink Movies,” films like Detention and Freaks Of Nature that take wildly outlandish concepts, throw the kitchen sink at the screen, and pray to god that it’s entertaining because it’s sure as hell not gonna make any sense. It’s a difficult genre to pull off since you run the risk of going too far and blurring out any attempt at story, or you don’t go far enough and your wild concept just feels flimsy and unfocused. In the case of Slice, it unfortunately suffers from the latter issue.

Halloween is around the corner and the horror genre is making a giant comeback with many independent films being released to larger theaters across the world. From the general consensus, horror is here to stay with many films and TV Shows using nostalgic elements to draw the audience in and never let them go. What makes these types of films compelling is the thought process, direction, practical effects, and originality. As a huge fan of this genre, I also really appreciate newer concepts and incorporating factual events into a film that will set itself apart from other movies that play it safe.
