    has its funny moments

    no wonder people were reminded of night of the creeps. this was an alright movie that had its funny moments but for the most part was just sick and downright disgusting. love Nathan Fillion who was just awesome in Serenity. in case you do see this beware of weird slug like creatures and weird scenes and that it is rated r. was it just me or did Elizabeth Banks look a little like Rachel McAdams?

    James Gunn is a good influence in Hollywood.

    James Gunn is a genius in scriptwriting, and he is a very rare species of people making it in the Hollywood scene without selling out. His scripts always show his true sense of humor and cynicism. He always puts a lot of Troma in there. Before Directing and writing Slither he wrote a number of highly successful theatrical hits, and he managed to make even Scooby Doo highly enjoyable and even did the impossible by writing an absolutely amazing script for the remake of absolute classic amongst classics of horror-films Dawn of the Dead - something me and many others always thought of as being totally impossible. However brilliant, none of Gunn's scripts, including Slither, although it comes close, are as GENIUS as the first one he ever wrote to be made in a film: Tromeo and Juliet, directed by Lloyd Kaufman "with Gunn as assistant director". Although not selling out, is it clear that all films for larger studio's need some concessions here and there, while Tromeo and Juliet has none of that, and truly shows Gunns genius without any restrictions "and it is, incidentally available on a tenth anniversary double disc, with huge contributions of James Gunn himself!!". All this said I can only conclude that Slither is a fantastic film, with a script as good as or maybe even better than his DAWN remake, and with it James Gunn shows he is perfect for directing his own work, because the film as a whole is far better than DAWN. An absolute must see, must have. The DVD also includes a very enjoyable video diary by independent film-legend Lloyd Kaufman, who has a cameo in Slither.

    amazing

    A great throwback to 80s horror and uses make up masterfully unlike modern cgi techniques.

    Awesome

    I really feel good about this one. It's gory. It has dark humor. It's about alien slugs. It really keeps you going, and if nothing else is worth the rent. I'm a picky person when it comes to horrors, but this one was good.
