Now that's what I call a true homage to a genre, in this case to the b-movie horror\comedy genre that flourished in the 70s and 80s. Absolutely beautifully done, the technical side is outstanding, so is the horror and especially comedy part of the movie. True fans of the genre, of such explosive mix will be satisfied and pleased.
A comedy horror which succeeds in making you both laugh & gross-out, all at the same time. The shift from comedy to horror happens subtly & cleverly with the two often intertwining for the most disgusting scenes of the film. The acting part is not exemplary but is altogether adequate.
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.
