A funnily pretentious film, but the first forty something minutes are very boring until out of the blue a scene in the bath tub grabs you at your CGI heart strings and the horror finally begins only to eventually fall back into uninteresting plot that tries not to take itself seriously only adding fire to the flames. The only thing great about this film is its visual and special effects. As a horror film it is not scary nor frightening, only in one scene with the family that met there slithery end is when it get a little close to sinister. Along with a plot ripped from another film Invasion of The Body Snatchers, get ready to watch a film made by a film-crew that would not know horror if it forced it way down there throats. A asteroid crash-lands on earth in an American southern town, that will be the new breeding place for an alien race that has lived for millions of years, but some-how falls in love with an earth-girl.

Gross, slimy, and twisted, Slither is an amazing homage to 80s horror (everything from Night of the Creeps to The Thing) that provides hilarious gags and solid performances (seriously, Michael Rooker is creepy as hell in this movie) from its cast.

A gross but funny horror comedy.

Entertaining horror-comedy from James Gunn pays homage to the horror-comedies of the 1980s, and it is a lot of fun. It has some good gore effects, a solid cast, and some ridiculousness that never takes itself too seriously. If you like stuff from the 80s like "Night of the Creeps" or the "Evil Dead" movies, chances are you'll find something to enjoy in this.

This is an odd little horror film that's almost too cheesy but it sort of all works.

Its doesn't get campier and more B-movie than this. Its a wonderful and very funny tribute to horror-comedies.

Let me say this first: slither is an extremely Americanised film. And it doesn't work. The first ten minutes of the film are up to the standard of, well, almost none. Granted the film does get better, but the ridiculous acting thats done in a way which suggests the film is entirely serious, drowns the film. The screenplay, by Gunn, barely pulls any laughs. I guess his answer to shaun of the dead (for which he also wrote the screenplay) is utter garbage. Granted, the film picks up pace as it continues but there is only one real funny scene at the end. The accents are cringeworthy and hard to love, making it really hard for the audience to sympathise with them. You kinda want the alien zombie things to win. But, as slither scales into hollywood clichés, of course that doesnt happen.
This film, frankly, is a mess of gags, slime and blood. Just not the funny type

Cinematic eccentricity riddled with dauntlessness and energy, because in here what does not work as horror works as comedy, and vise versa. It steps on the leagues of Scream, The Cabin in the Woods, or even Tremors.

A horror comedy that genuinely got under my skin with tentacle rape scenes and managed a few laughs as well.

One of my favorite movies, Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks are excellent and hilarious!

A great homage to 80's low budget B-movie horrors. Gross and funny with good effects and movie fun. Modern comedy horror, that works! Good cast too. 6.5/10

Extremely gory alien creature feature with delightfully funny throwaway lines amongst the gore. An asteroid breaks up over a sleepy US town and delivers a horde of slugs which then inhabit the population. Gunn does a great job of keeping the pace busy and it is enjoyable ride but not for the squeamish!

Nathan Fillion & Elizabeth Banks Vs. Evil Parasite Alien Things. It's a recipe for hilarious disaster.

Really fun throwback to 80s B-movies with a totally game cast and incredible practical/special effects! The film is non-stop entertaining and that's largely due to the hilariously, cooky dialogue, in particular from the mayor, played by Gregg Henry. The story is incredibly simple (and very reminiscent of Night Of The Creeps) and wastes no time explaining the monster's origins, and puts all the focus on the horror goods! This is a really disgusting movie with all kinds of gross sound effects and very unique bloodshed; not for the squeamish. Don't expect it to scare you, just have fun with it and relish in it's cheese! The scene in the barn is one of the most memorable and insane things I've ever seen, so be ready for that shit!

Why had I not heard more about this??

I'd seen the cover image around the place, but this deserves much more attention that it got.

Great fun horror comedy, with Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, and a excellent hilarious performance by the always-awesome Michael Rooker.

I was inspired to check this film out because it was the directorial debut of James Gunn, who recently made the oh-so-excellent Guardians of the Galaxy. It's a gross-out B-horror movie about alien slugs that take over people's brains and turn them into zombies. And it's about exactly what you would expect from that description. It's fairly clever in its execution, and it has some good performances (I especially liked Michael Rooker from The Walking Dead as the main villain/host to the slugs), but it's generally pretty conventional. Some memorablly disgusting creatures aside, it doesn't stray that far from well-worn horror formulas. It's fine if you like this sort of thing, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see it unless you're either a horror fan or a James Gunn fan.
