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 ..
