Yoga is now the subject of a…horror movie?

Yoga is the topic of lots of documentaries and, of course, workout DVDs galore. But in 2015 it’s arriving on the big screen in a totally different way—in the form of a horror movie. (Not to be confused with your latest vinyasa encounter with scary inversions in the middle of the room.)

Yoga Hosers is based on two yoga-obsessed Canadian teenagers, who also work as convenience store clerks, according to the The Hollywood Reporter. (Apparently, given this photo, the teens can’t wear their yoga pants to work.)

The film is the brainchild of writer-director Kevin Smith (the guy behind Clerks, Dogma, and Mallrats), who’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith stars in the film alongside Johnny Depp and his daughter Lily-Rose Depp.

The movie is centered around a familiar scary movie motif—a high school party that turns into a really bad scene. But where typical horror-movie heroines might reach for a kitchen knife or a clever found object (stiletto, broken chair leg) to fend off their attackers, this young, yoga-loving duo “fight for their lives with all seven chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time,” the producers say.

If Smith’s recent horror/comedy, Tusk, about a man who turns into a walrus-monster is any indication, Yoga Hosers will likely be just as creepy. (It’s probably a good idea to have a quiet place for a restorative pose after the screening.)

As for the movie name? “Hosers” is Canadian slang for “loser.” Which, depending on how the film ends, could be the next ironic tee to sweep the yoga world. —Molly Gallagher
