A hip and happening fashion store goes into lockdown overnight to keep this season’s it-piece from the public eye until its release date the next morning. But the jeans, which automatically adapt to individual body shapes, come alive and start killing off the locked-in sales clerks. Elza Kephart’s Slaxx gloriously harkens back to anti-consumerist B movies from the golden days of Reaganomics, like Larry Cohen’s The Stuff. And the scene with several pairs of jeans dancing Bollywood-style through the salesroom elevates this satirical splatter grenade to one of the year’s best midnight movies.
