A killer uses the unstoppable speed and sudden turns of water slides to their murderous advantage in the new trailer for Aquaslash, the latest film from director Renaud Gauthier (Discopathe).

A blood-splashed tribute to ’80s slashers, Aquaslash will have its world premiere this July at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal.

Directed by Gauthier from a screenplay he co-wrote with Philip Kalin-Hajdu, Aquaslash stars Nicolas Fontaine, Brittany Drisdale, Madeline Harvey, and Paul Zinno.
