Listen Here: The New Doug Loves Movies Podcast Features Austin's Own SLASH - Opens This Week!

Doug Benson, Clay Liford, Missi Pyle and Michael Ian Black at Doug Loves Movies taping

The AFS Grant supported film SLASH has really been getting around recently. It seems like everyone is talking about the film, whose writer/director Clay Liford is one of Austin's busiest and talented filmmakers.

The film is about a pair of teenagers (Hannah Marks of DIRK GENTLY'S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY and Michael Johnston of the TEEN WOLF series) whose love of erotic fan fiction brings them together. In a scenario that could be the launching point for cheap jokes, Liford creates something searchingly human and full of truth. The film also showcases Michael Ian Black, Robert Longstreet, Missi Pyle and many others in its dead-on cast.

The new Doug Loves Movies podcast, released today, is all about Slash, as host Doug Benson welcomes Liford, Black and Pyle to the studio to talk about the film.

SLASH opens at the Alamo South Lamar on Thursday, December 8.

On Monday, December 12, AFS will proudly co-present the film, with AFS Lead Programmer Lars Nilsen hosting the film alongside director Clay Liford. As always at the Drafthouse, AFS members can show their cards at the ticketing counter to receive a discount. We encourage you to enjoy SLASH and support local film. See you there!
