Netflix released a first look trailer for “Slasher: Solstice,” from creator Aaron Martin. The new release is set to premiere on May 23, and the story takes place during the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. “Slasher: Solstice” is the third season of the psychological thriller anthology series, and stars Salvatore Antonio, Lisa Berry, Paula Brancati, Gabriel Darku, Erin Karpluk, Dean McDermott, Mercedes Morris, Ilan Muallem, Paulino Nunes, Baraka Rahmani, and Joanne Vannicola.
In the announcement, Aaron Martin said, “Slasher is a character-driven contemporary murder mystery, set in a classic slasher film environment. This season, I am excited that in addition to telling a gripping horror story, based on true crime cases, we were able to grapple with some important issues including anti-immigration bias and bullying.”
Ian Carpenter, the current showrunner, added, “It’s about the kind of judgment and resentment that arise when a neighborhood gentrifies — a bunch of people that would never choose each other as neighbors rubbing up against each other every day, tension leading to hate leading to violence and death.”
According to show, “Slasher: Solstice “takes place over 24 hours during the summer solstice. In the story, a young man is brutally killed in front of his apartment building, and he is surrounded by witnesses who do nothing to help. One year later, terror strikes the apartment complex once again when someone seemingly seeks revenge on the neighbors and witnesses who did nothing to help the young man. The story picks up when a hooded figure begins to hunt them down one by one to extract payback.
As we mentioned earlier, “Slasher: Solstice” is the third of an anthology psychological thriller series to air on Netflix. The first season, “Slasher: The Executioner,” follows The Executioner’s brutal sin-based killing spree in a small town. Season two, “Slasher: Guilty Party,” follows a group of friends who return to their summer campground to bury the sins of their past as they are stalked by a revenge-seeking killer.
