Pretty formulaic creature horror movie (B style to a B+ standard) but Gunn fills it with wicked humour and fun characters. The gore and creature effects are agreeably cheesy. Fillion, Rooker and Banks are in fine form.
Slither is a very well-made movie, just too sad it did not perform that well at the box office. Its currently my favourite horror comedy, as well as one of my favourite movies. I just love the tone and the humor. And Elizabeth Banks is bae.
Awesome movie. Writer/director James Gunn crafts a thrilling, hilarious, disturbing sci-fi/horror/comedy that blends everything so well, including great visual effects, a wonderful script, and great performances from its cast, especially Fillion, Banks and Rooker.
I've seen several horrors with very similar stories and they are all pretty disappointing. This isn't though because it's a satire of those others with some pretty funny scenes thrown in at points when you don't really expect them. It works as a decent horror and a comedy.
