        A comedy-horror riff on an alien-parasite invasion of a small rural town is fun, gross and completely engaging. James Gunn demonstrates his pre-GOG chops, getting the most of the great acting ensemble including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Rooker, and Nathan Fillon.

        The movie opens with a meteorite landing in the backwoods of the small town of Wheelsy. The bad news is that our atmosphere did not burn up everything inside the meteorite. One of Wheelsy's rich business men, Grant Grant (Michael Rooker), who is married to the young and beautiful high school biology teacher, Starla (Elizabeth Banks), finds a slow moving slimy thing behind the town bar. The slug stops moving as Grant moves closer, he becomes infected by the slug. Grant begins to change and evolve into a bloodthirsty meat-eating squid creature with a need to kill to maintain his life. Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and Starla must defeat this creature or the entire earth will be consumed. Slither is a 1950's type B-grade horror/comedy movie scenario that has everything. A billion-year-old alien parasite from outer space with penetrating tentacles that sucks the life out of you, fast moving slugs that want to get inside your mouth, dogs and cows being eaten by human and deer zombies, an enormous mother glob, and the small town being terrorized by a monster. This is your classic B-grade movie that is a lot of fun watching. You will laugh from beginning to end. For budget reasons, it looks like they used the old standby, tomato ketchup, for blood. There are some scary moments, but most of the scenes are hilarious. If you want an enjoyable night and a good laugh, this is the movie to see. 5 Stars for Comedy. 5-27-13

        Didn't really like this one...it was just too weird and gross. Cool idea, but the zombie concept thing wasn't put to use as much as it should. Plus the story takes too long to get off the ground, especially for a 90 minute movie. As a side note, Nathan Fillion is absolutely fantastic in this movie, and really funny too. Unfortunately, not even he can save this movie.

        An admirable effort, and I would generally like this sort of tongue-in-cheek scary B-movie, but Slither isn't effective as a comedy or a horror movie, so all you're really left with is B-movie production values. I was hoping to like this more, but it never really worked for me, save for a few well-executed lines by the always talented Nathan Fillion. Overall, it ended up being pretty disappointing movie centered around a concept that could have been great.
