    Slice

    ★★

    gotta admit, slice has a potpourri of incredibly promising elements, such as pizza, ghosts, witches, werewolves, chance the rapper, murder mystery, and of course, more pizza. it also spoils us with an amazingly attractive opening sequence thats a reminiscence of classic 80s comics. but unfortunately, the rest of the film didnt really live up to its premise.
