  • Editorial Reviews

    "Slither delivers seat-squirming scares." -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer Prepare yourself for this terrifying, twisted, and chilling film that critics are calling "the most entertaining horror movie in years" (Joe Williams, St. Louis Post Dispatch). From the writer of 2004's Dawn of the Dead comes the deliciously demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town. Intent on devouring all life on Earth, this dark force is infecting anyone in its path. Now, it's up to the local sheriff, Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion, Serenity), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation - and shocking mutilation - before it's too late.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Alien slugs, tentacles, zombies.....oh my!! March 31, 2006
    James Gunn first got his chance to work in the horror-comedy genre with his time in Troma Films. His first contribution to the genre being a send up of Shakespeare's Romero and Juliet aptly titled as Tromeo and Juliet. He next moved on to penning scripts for the major studios with his first two being the critically-panned, but profitable two Scooby-Doo live-action films. Gunn next moved on to writing a script reimagining George A. Romero's classic Dawn of the Dead. Despite howls of protest from the original film's legion of fans, the film went on to be a modest success and helped bring about the renaissance of the current zombie mania in all facet of entertainment. Gunn follows up the success of his Dawn remake by not just writing the script but finally getting behind the camera and directing it himself. I'm glad to say that James Gunn's first directorial debut with Slither has turned out to be one fun, gross-out, disgustingly hilarious horror-comedy that brings to mind the splatter-comedy films of the 1980's.

    I say that Slither has alot in common with the horror-comedy during the 80's just for the fact that we've not seen a film of this kind since. Slither brings to mind such 80's B-movie shlock classics like Critters, Return of the Living Dead, and Night of the Creeps. But Gunn also pays some an homage to cult classics like John Carpenter's The Thing. One of the character's in the film and a store are even named after The Thing's badass antihero, R.J. MacReady. Then there's the tip of the hat to Romero's zombies, though this time around I would say that Gunn had more in mind the quickthinking and funny undead from John Russo's Return of the Living Dead.

    4.0 out of 5 stars And now for some fun April 3, 2006
    Over the last year or so, the true horror films (meaning, the non-PG-13 teen fests) took themselves very seriously. We had enough hacked off limbs (Saw II), weird decapitations and spewing blood (High Tension), torture (Hostel and Wolf Creek) and just plain good scares and gore (The Descent, The Hills Have Eyes) to last a lifetime. Most of these films had some connections to the 70s gore flicks in which the premise is made to instill terror and to disturb those watching it. While you can't call some of the films "fun" exactly, they are all excellent in instilling terror and disturbing their viewers.

    Into this fray comes a little film by James Gunn, the writer of the Dawn of the Dead remake/re-imagining, this time as not only writer but also director. James Gunn began his career making Troma films like Tromeo and Juliet. If you don't know what these films are, well I'm not about to explain them to you just go rent one. Slither feels like a Troma picture with a bigger budget, a better script and with better actors. What you can expect here is tons of gore but done in a fun, gross, over-the top way that makes you laugh as well as cringe. Its about as close as you can get to the previously mentioned films while at the same time being so far removed.

    Slither is about a very sleepy town in which the town's police use the speeding radar to track how fast the local birds fly and in which a meteor crashing into the forest behind them goes by totally unnoticed. It's also a movie in which a man can be named Grant Grant, be an egotistical arse and become a host for a slug-like parasite. It's also a movie in which seeing a squid-man, slugs and a bloated woman elicits nothing more than a "this is some f---ked up sh-t." It's campy, but it's supposed to be.

    Format:DVD
    How many times have you seen a review title like that? How many times have you then read said review only to find out the reviewer likes crappy movies? It happens all too often, though there really is no accounting for taste especially when it comes to horror movies. Well, as a minor validation of my title, I don't get too excited about movies very often (for what that's worth) and I have pretty broad tastes in movie. I can accept "stupid but entertaining", "great story bad acting", "simple plot with lots of good action" and of course "great movies". I can't enjoy "The plot to nowhere (see "The Ring"), "pretentious and pointless (see "suspect Zero") and I really draw the line at "boring no matter how intelligent".

    When I first saw trailers for this film, I thought "Cool, a movie about killer slugs!" and then quickly gave up all hope of actually going to the theater and seeing it (my wife hates horror movies and I don't enjoy going alone). As a busy father of 2 young kids, I don't get to see these types of films. It won't fit in the schedule. So, I forgot about "Slither" until I recently went on one of my annual Halloween DVD buying binges. The good reviews here and the low price convinced me it was a good choice. (Sorry this is taking so long) The point is; I really had "Low budget, entertaining horror film" expectations.

    Boy; was I wrong. This film is entertaining on so many levels. Here's a list of superlatives that easily describe this film:

    -funny, scary, gross, intelligent, creative, genuine, well-acted, high-quality, shocking, surprising, fast-paced, entertaining, crazy, demented... well I could just keep going.

    Don't get me wrong, this is not "Citizen Kane" or even "Alien".

    5.0 out of 5 stars SURPRISINGLY FUN MOVIE
    Truth be told, I bought this movie solely based on the fact that it starred Nathan Fillion. I love him on Castle and I figured I would give it a try. It was a good movie.
