Product Description

"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. Special Features: Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director James Gunn Visual Effects: Step by Step Slithery Set Tour with Nathan Fillion Extended Scenes with Optional Commentary by Director James Gunn Who Is Bill Pardy? Gag Reel The Sick Minds and Slimy Days of Slither The Gorehound Grill: Brewin' the Blood Feature Commentary with Director James Gunn and Actor Nathan Fillion Bringing Slither's Creatures to Life The King of Cult: Lloyd Kaufman's Video Diary

4.0 out of 5 stars A B Movie 2 C Aug. 6 2007
By Laurence R. Hunt TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
7 August 07

Were it not for Nathan Fillion of the Firefly/Serenity series, my wife and I would never have watched Slither last week.

Abashedly, I'll admit I'm glad we did.

Fillion did not disappoint, though I doubt that he made a bundle of money for his starring role in this B-movie. We'd gladly have him back on Serenity for years more of Firefly episodes.

The budget was so slim that the monster effects had to be scaled down to what the production crew could afford. Thus, the nasty little slithery monsters had to attack the victim/survivor of the cover of the DVD on the balcony outside the house, because there were not sufficient funds to pay for the little critters to swarm through her home.

So, what was good about this B-movie? Well, director James Gunn has a sense of humour, and is utterly reverent for some of the masters of this genre, particularly Canadian David Cronenberg.

Allusions to other films are interspersed throughout, including one that we caught - Fillion refuses the hand grenade to a deputized posse member, as he did with Jayne in Firefly (Susan noticed this, I hope I've got it right). Also, the lead character in Cronenberg's The Fly is referenced in a brand name at the supermarket, so the trivia buffs will be delighted.

Gunn prefers the "creepy" to the scary, and he has a fairly deft sense of where to draw the line between these two distinctly different genres. While the aliens take out most community members in the (I presume mythical) town of Wheelsy, it is not through the type of gruesome and mounting body count that typifies slasher movies (which hold no appeal at all for me personally).

4.0 out of 5 stars Old-fashioned horror fun Oct. 23 2011
By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A fun throwback to movies like The Blob and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Slither combines horror with an absurdist sense of humour, pitch-perfect performances, and deliriously campy make-up effects. Great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Where is the Mr. Pibb?" Aug. 16 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Outstanding horror movie with a comedic edge. Outstanding direction, cast, script and special fx. Disc has a good combo of pretty solid video, audio(Dolby TrueHD) and extras.
