Alpha All the Way

Welcome to the Annual February Shortening! In honor of the shortest month on a blog written by a short woman, all posts are devoted to stories about vertically challenged villains. If you, reader of any height, have your own mini-horror to share, do so in the comments and I'll include you in a final post roundup as the calendar changes!


  1. Love the review, and love the sound of this flick. Reminds me a lot of the killer pants one you reviewed a few years ago that was a commentary on fast fashion, but still managed to be fun. Like that one, Slotherhouse doesn't sound like a film I would watch on my own but it will probably make for a fun group watch, so thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    1. Yes! Slaxx! I didn't even think of it but it DID have that energy! I hope you enjoy this one!

  2. I watched it with my partner last night, I liked it! Lots of fun, and good self-awareness in the comedy. And not super preachy -- that's a hard balance to achieve I think, having a message but not beating the audience over the head with it, and I thought Slotherhouse found that balance pretty well. My only complaints were that the Zenny character was grating and poorly played, and the last 20 minutes dragged on with all the "sloth just won't die" stuff. I loved the soundtrack though, lots of shockingly well-written pop/rock/punk songs about Alpha, I was genuinely impressed by that detail.
