Slither



Starring: Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Rooker, Gregg Henry.
Genre: Horror/Comedy

This was quite an enjoyable piece of B-grade horror cinema. I watched it predominantly because I'm a Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Firefly) fan, and I'm sure that helped. It's funnier than I thought, and really gross, too. This marks James Gunn's directorial debut. Look out for a cameo from The Office's Jenna Fischer, who Gunn was married to at the time. Plotwise, Grant Grant (yes, that's his name) is infected by an alien who wants to destroy the human race. He mutates into a revolting octopus-like creature, more humans become infected, animals are eaten, slugs go a-slithering, things get blown up and pus spews forth. As Nathan Fillion's character says, "that's some fucked up shit!". Enjoy :)

  1. Ahh, Nathan Fillion is in it, so it has to be good. It's an immutable law. Also liked your description of the plot, I hadn't heard about this movie before but I definitely want to see it now.

  2. If you like Nathan Fillion, you'll enjoy this. He gets most of the amusing one-liners :)
