Slither is one of those crazy monster movies that knows what it is...and strives to be the best at what it is! A small town is invaded by parasitic little alien leeches that like to invade human bodies and take them over.. One by one, they take over the townspeople and turn them into slavering zombie-like monsters bent on making more and more of themselves. Only the local sheriff and a small band of believers can stop the complete domination of the world. Yes, it's a mixture of the Blob and Invasion of the Body Snatchers...and it's very tongue-in-cheek. And there's plenty of blood and guts for the gorehounds! When it's all said and done, this is director James Gunn's love letter to the classic horror film...with his typical over-the-top, disgusting flair. If you're a fan of the Dawn of the Dead series, Dead-Alive, or even some of Gunn's other work on Lloyd Kauffman's Tromeo and Juliet, you'll love this film!

A B-movie that KNOWS its a B-movie...it doesn't take itself TOO seriously, and is reminiscent of the old Drive-in "monsters-invade-a-small-town" movie...with more blood, guts & gore!!! Plenty of scenes that make you laugh & make you squirm in disgust (sometimes at the same time). If you're a fan of comedy/horror and Drive-In movies of yesteryear, you owe it yourself to see this at least once. This one's staying on my "keeper" shelf!

This movie is a guilty pleasure for sure! Raunchy and dirty and gross, but a total blast! Nathan Fillion is also WAY worth watching.

This is one of my favorite horror comedies! Nathan Fillion (Firefly/Serenity) is fabulous as the sheriff who still holds a torch for his childhood crush. The writing style is very similar to Joss Whedon with great one liners. The film does get quite gruesome as it progresses.

"SLiTHER is a Horror fan's wet dream, assembling a draft pick of familiar faces to head off against a slimy foe in one of 2006's goriest guilty pleasures! An alien menace threatens to destroy the small town of Wheelsy when the parasitic slugs begin to turn its citizens into mind-controlled zombies. Director James Gunn firmly denies having seen Fred Dekker's NIGHT OF THE CREEPS prior to filming, however the two films share far too many similarities to be ignored. Numerous other nods to 80s classics (including "Henenlotter's Lodge," a cameo by Lloyd Kaufman, and a modified version of the PREDATOR theme) only strengthen the case against him, but regardless of the alleged plagiarism, SLiTHER provides enough originality and entertainment to distinguish it from its predecessor. The acid-spitting, slug-infested creatures make for a refreshing change-up from the usual zombie fare, and their group consciousness gives them another unique edge. Michael Rooker's off-beat performance as the mutated Grant is as creepy as it is disgusting, while each of the other characters hold their own as they shoot and stab their way through town. SLiTHER also offers an even blend of practical and digital FX, only relying on computer imaging for shots that could not be realistically completed in-frame. With its sharp wit and buckets of blood, SLiTHER makes for a ton of gross-out fun!
