Amiably retro in its icky shock value, this love story with an alien twist is often so funny it's scary.

Derivative, glib, throwaway, and thoroughly entertaining. A knowing genre movie aimed at fans of Tremors or Lake Placid.

Done with a knowing wink and a nod, Slither doesn't offer much in the way of scares, but makes up for it in laughs and decent banter and a number of well executed gross out moments.

[A] pleasing B-level gore fest.

If there were still drive-in cinemas around, "Slither" would be a perfect B horror movie to sit in your car and watch to the sound of shrieks and one-liner jokes blasting around a hilly parking lot from so many tiny speakers.

It wows us with the expertise way Gunn has in how he handles the creepy hokum and keeps a good balance between the chills and the laughs.

Gunn makes this horror-com his own.

Gunn's film is masses of nostalgic fun if you grew up with body horror of the 1980s. And just plain gross fun if you didn't.

Gross-out horror comedy is my least favorite genre, but this movie's so skillful I have to take my hat off to it.

Slither is a monster movie with a wry smile on its face, where (thankfully) the gruesome effects, rather than the humour, tend towards full on gross out.
March 24, 2007
Slither is over-the-top, gross, funny, bizarre and totally weird. In other words, it might be just what you're looking for this weekend.

A pretty fun movie that makes good on laughs and gory gross-outs.

Unlike the current concept of over the top bloodletting that thinks the sequence is more important than the sluice, this inspired auteur gets his groovy grue just right.

Here's a review that not only benefits from, but requires, words like giant squid, festering blob and tummy tentacles.

It's refreshing to see a movie like Slither, which has obviously been made by someone with a deep affection for the glory gory days of American horror comedy.

A monstrously funny alien-invasion-zombie-horror-comedy.

There's enough material in that scene for a whole conference of psychologists, but I couldn't stop to figure it all out. I was too busy laughing.

Slither is an honourable amalgamation of several dozen spookers of days gone by.
