Editorial Reviews

A nuclear leak creates a mutant Slithis sea monster, which terrorizes the variety of pets, winos, and hippies who hang around Venice, California. Made in 1977 for $100,000, director Stephen Traxler takes the traditional sea monster idea created with Creature From the Black Lagoon, and creates a campier atmosphere, while filling as much gore and even nudity as he can get away with into the then PG-rated film.

3.0 out of 5 stars 70s Cheese should please 70s cheese fans July 1, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this without ever seeing it since I like campy cheesy movies such as It Conquered the World, Navy vs the Night Monsters, Creature from Black Lake, the Giant Spider Invasion, Crater Lake Monster etc
Slithis aka Spawn of the Slithis was a modest amount of fun. I did like the monster in it..there are a some tedious parts but overall it is right there along the lines of the Don Dohler films like The Alien Factor. There is some gore, but nothing really disgusting & there is a bit of mild nudity...
The monster is created from a Nuclear Leak. This creature eats, kills animals and people. Simple enough, so for nearly 90 minutes the monster terrorizes ..
I didnt think it was too bad..well my standards going in were below average & this met them. Good campy B monster movie. Call it a poor man's Creature from the Black Lagoon.
The transfer is widescreen and is about as clear as a print that you will ever see as far as this movie goes..
Its no classic but if you like cheesy B movies that I listed above you should give it a try if youve never seen it. Avoid the VHS tape if you want to rent it - it is way too dark..if youre going to rent it, see this DVD ..

5.0 out of 5 stars Dawn of the Slithis (1978) June 11, 2010
Format:DVD
Spawn of the Slithis (1978) is really a pretty cheesy movie and can barely hold your attention throughout but Bad Movie buffs will love it.

This is a cheesy movie about a nuclear, mutant sea monster. Not that great of movie, but you will get a few laughs at the cheesiness of the awesome sea monster. This is for any classic sea monster movie fan. It has the essence of Godzilla except with a then modern 1970's touch.

Win Condict is the the Monster or the alien, and he spawns thousands of little ones in a very unique way.

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie sucks, so buy it now! December 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A bargain sub-basement, Z-grade "Creature From The Black Lagoon" rip-off, done 70's Grindhouse style. Not for the casual monster movie lover. You almost have to be a fan of this obscure film or else a certified masochist to want to punish yourself by seeing it. It's so awful that it almost dares you to watch it, just to be certain that it truly deserves its reputation of being so obscure, forgotten, and rotten. It's like having a cold sore and touching it with your tongue: you know it's gonna hurt but you do it anyways just to make sure that it still hurts.

Now I'm the kind of guy who loves this type of crappy film, so I was filled with a Christmas morning-level of joy when I accidentally discovered that it had actually been released on DVD. I quickly ordered a copy of this cinematic atrocity and happily added it to my collection of celluloid excrement. And sure it enough, it really does completely and totally suck - in every possible way. No plot, written by 3rd graders, filmed through a lens covered in Vaseline, directed by a spider monkey on crack, edited with a chainsaw, and acted by no one you'll ever see again. It's just wonderful! You have been warned!

5.0 out of 5 stars A flash from the past! July 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was 10 years old when my younger brothers and I talked mt mother into seeing this movie. We saw it a drive-in thats no longer there. I remember watching the movie up to the point of Slithis biteing this young chicks tit. Not graphic to todays standards by far but my mom freaked out. Next thing I know the speaker is tossed out the window and she was leaveing a trail of gravel a mile long. I just remember her screaming OH MY GOD!!!. Its takin 34 years to see the end of this flick! My life is now complete!! As to the movie its a c- flick. I think of alot better horror flicks and alot worse. As for me its a movie that is a great addition to my collection. ENJOY!
