Social media reacts to trailer for “killer sloth” horror movie ‘Slotherhouse’: “Cinema is so back”
The trailer for a new horror film about a “killer sloth” called Slotherhouse has dropped, leaving social media users confused and amused.
A synopsis for Slotherhouse – which is directed by Matthew Goodhue and slated for release on August 30 – reads: “Emily Young, a senior, wants to be elected as her sorority’s president. She adopts a cute sloth, thinking it can become the new mascot and help her win, until a string of fatalities implicate the sloth as the main suspect in the murders.”
“A movie about a killer sloth. Count me in,” one Twitter user shared, while another added: “Cinema is so back, y’all.”
“You can run, but you can’t h….. actually, running will be enough. Running will totally work,” another joked.
“It’s dropping in slow motion that’s why we have to wait til the 30th,” a third added.
Check out some more reactions to the trailer below.

Reviewing Cocaine Bear earlier this year, NME described the film as “fucked-up and furry in the year’s wildest movie”. It added: “You can have a lot of fun with Cocaine Bear, mostly because of how bonkers it is.”
Back in June, the trailer and poster for Crackcoon was shared, following the story of a drug-fuelled raccoon that wreaks havoc on a small town.
According to the movie’s synopsis, the raccoon is transformed into “a nightmarish killing machine” after ingesting a large amount of a strong, synthetically-altered street drug, which was discarded in the woods by locals.
Meanwhile, Meg 2: The Trench, the sequel to Jason Statham’s 2018 shark thriller, arrives in cinemas this week. In the new instalment, Statham’s Jonas Taylor and his team take to the bottom of the ocean to explore the trench and seemingly let loose all of its creatures, which include not one, but three megalodons.
