Jack, your leisure activities ain't my business.
An homage to everything
James Gunn wrote Slither as an homage to the horror movies he loved.
Every single one of them. From the Deadly Swarm, to The Fly, to the
Toxic Avenger, to Basket Case, to some films most people wouldn't know
The film is about a loving husband (though noticeably not the best. His
love for his wife is one of his better sides) who is stung by an alien
insect. He starts mutating into a squid beast while slug like monsters
Terrorize a small town where cell phones don't exist.
It's obvious from the previews that this is a bit of a comedy. You'll
be surprised at just how suspenseful it really is. The horror ranges
from cheap pop-outs, hilarious gore, and heart pounding action in a
genre bending film that is like Tremors for adults.
The movie is well acted, and all the actors have such great chemistry
together. While the movie isn't an excellent film, those looking for a
good time have nothing to complain about. It keeps the audiences
entertained like few other movies can.
