Posted on

The 2020 satirical indie horror film Slaxx exposes the horrors associated with the fashion industry when a pair of jeans become possessed by the exploited factory workers who made them. Frustrated by the cynicism of Western consumer society and the layers of injustice fashion generates, the jeans engage in a rampant bloodbath targeting the influencers, vloggers, consumers and fashion store managers that perpetuate the inhumane conditions through which they are produced. Using a combination of gore and comedy, the raging jeans point to an apocalypse fuelled by the perceived immorality of the fast fashion.

With a case of lockjaw severe enough to cause concern for his molars, Mr. Smith portrays the Duke of Edinburgh (whom the queen would not make a prince until five years after she succeeded to the throne) as an arch complainer, a man who views the 20th-century monarchy as little more than “a coat of paint” on a crumbling Empire.

“If the costumes are grand enough, if the

FOR A 1984 appearance on Late Night with David Letterman, Tina Turner, then 44, emerged in a microscopic black leather miniskirt, black top, fishnets and serious high heels. There to promote her first big solo record, “Private Dancer,” with its hit “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” she was in the midst of a Lazarus-like resurrection after leaving the abusive Ike Turner in 1976.
