‘Slice,’ starring Chance the Rapper, is a satisfying spin on good vs. evil

If you can suspend the good ol’ cynicism brought on by daily life for about 90 minutes, director Austin Vesely’s debut motion picture, “Slice,” the “story of a ghost, a werewolf, and quite honestly — a … pizza place,” will remind you that sometimes, villains hide in plain sight and heroes are often unlikely.

The film premiered at ArcLight Cinemas in Lincoln Park on Monday after initially being teased with a 30-second trailer back in 2016. More followed, increasing the hype around the movie about a killing spree targeting pizza delivery boys. Before long, the trailer for “Slice” became the most-viewed on iTunes.
