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

The film brought me little pleasure, but it revived happy memories of a laidback caper movie also called Slither, starring Peter Boyle and James Caan, made in 1973.

It was a great combination of a monster/alien/zombie movie and it did in fact elicit a few laugh out loud moments, but overall I thought it was just ok.

This rip-roaring horror romp combines alien and zombie genres in a way that's both exciting and hilarious, stirring in a lively, nonstop narrative with complex characters and excessive gore.

Of course, Slither isn't for everyone, but if you've a yen for gallons of grue and a smart, sassy story to boot, you couldn't do better than Gunn's hellishly fun horror show.

Undeniably funny and gooey to boot, Slither may not be groundbreaking but it is a rarity: a horror-comedy that does both its genre-parents proud.

If you're a fan of 1950s monster movies and films such as Tremors and Eight Legged Freaks then Slither has your name splattered all over it in brightly coloured goo.

...the epitome of hokey B-movie horror hedonism...a demonstrative deadpan horror show that blends observational sensationalism with rousing popcorn-oriented panache.

Inspired by 50s invasion B-movies and Troma films, Slither elicits a fine balance of laughs and armrest-grabbing moments.

... More comedy than horror, though on some level it is a satisfying entry in both genres.

Never lets up, throwing the blood, slime and one-liners (some woeful, most of them witty) at the screen with feverish abandon.

You know that kid in school who would eat anything just for the fun of grossing people out? Well, Slither is the movie equivalent of that kid.

Slither is as much fun as EC Comics on nitrous oxide.

...the lack of character development and distinctly uneven pacing prevents it from becoming as much fun as Gunn clearly wants it to be.

The gonzo, gore-oriented Troma spirit is clearly evident in this over-the-top splatter-comedy about sluglike thingies from outer space.

Gunn respects not only the genre but the audience; he grounds both the jokes and the shocks in his characters and situations, making this the most satisfying studio release since 'The Ice Harvest.'
| Original Score: 3.5/4

The movie, while a little too slow to be effective, achieves a good balance of chills, gross-out gore and humorous one-liners.
