The first two episodes of the popular horror anthology Slasher, dropped today on the horror streaming service Shudder. This edition (it’s 4th season) is titled “Flesh & Blood,” and based on the first four episodes that were made available for preview, Season 4 might just be the best season yet.
Slasher: Flesh & Blood follows a wealthy but dysfunctional family that gathers for a reunion on a secluded island only to learn they’ll be pitted against one another in a cruel game of life and death, all while being stalked by a mysterious masked killer. Nothing is what it seems, and no one is safe as the tension- and the body count- ratchets up. As with the past installments of the series, Slasher: Flesh & Blood will combine elements of traditional murder mystery with the intense horror and bold kills that audiences have come to expect.
The eight-episode event season stars horror film director David Cronenberg (The Fly, Scanners, Dead Ringers) as the Galloway family patriarch, alongside cast members from previous installments of the Slasher franchise in brand new roles, including Paula Brancati (Dark Oracle), Jefferson Brown (Carrie), Patrice Goodman (Sunnyside), Sabrina Grdevich (A.I. Artificial Intelligence), and Christopher Jacot (Going the Distance). New to the franchise are Rachael Crawford (Heartland),Jeananne Goosen(The Walking Dead), Sydney Meyer(Departure)and Alex Ozerov (The Americans).
