Passion and murder are in store for two party girls whose steamy sexual encounter turns bloody when a black-gloved killer follows them home.

Taking its cue from Italian "giallo" thrillers of the 1970's, SLIT is a contemporary horror experience that mixes together a color-saturated visual style, vivid sensuality, and shocking violence, set to a pulsating synthesizer score.

"Giallo" - Italian for "yellow" - refers to a genre of films inspired by pulp mystery novels published in Italy with distinctive yellow covers. "Giallo" films of the 1960's-1970's bear a distinct, baroque cinematic style -- and are known for their vivid colors and bizarre camerawork, fetishistic close-ups, iconic black-gloved killers, and nerve-jangling scores. Practitioners of the "giallo" arts include Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Umberto Lenzi, and Lucio Fulci.

SLIT was envisioned as a mashup between the sizzling eroticism of early Brian DePalma (his Body Double, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out are unofficial "giallos") and the colorful-yet-brutal cinematic overkill of Argento (Suspiria, Deep Red), accompanied by an 80's-style electronic score reminiscent of Giorgio Moroder (Cat People, Scarface), Jan Hammer, or Tangerine Dream.

SLIT was produced by the filmmaking team of writer/director Colin Clarke and cinematographer Brent Jepsen, who previously collaborated on the award-winning horror short, “Witchfinder”. Composer Andrew Kalbfus previously contributed scores for "Frankenstein vs the Wolfman" and "Raven's Hollow".
