Reviews

Edgy horror from director James Gunn. The sleepy town of Wheelsy could be any small town in America - quaint and gentle, peopled with friendly folks who mind their own business. But just beneath the surface charm, something unnamed and evil has arrived, and is growing. No one seems to notice as telephone poles become clogged with missing pet flyers, or when one of town's richest citizens, Grant Grant (Michael Rooker) begins to act strangely. But when farmers' livestock turn up horribly mutilated and a young woman goes missing, Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and his team, aided by Grant's wife Staria (Elizabeth Banks), uncover the dark force laying siege to their town and come face-to-face with an older-than-time organism intent on absorbing and devouring all life on Earth.

'Slither' is made unabashedly as homage to the 'body horror' films of the late seventies/early eighties. Think Cronenberg's 'Shivers' and 'Rabid', John Carpenter's 'The Thing', the eighties remake of 'The Blob', 'Society' etc. It reminds us of the joys of physical special effects rather than all that yawn-inducing CGI stuff that we are supposed to get excited about nowadays. 'Slither' has no unreasonable aspirations to greatness; but on its own modest terms it is a small masterpiece of B-movie fun.

In the past I've always found that a horror comedy film either works splendidly and is side splittingly funny (like Idle Hands) or fails miserably (like The Bogus Witch Project) and ends up being as funny as cancer. Thankfully I have to say that despite a few failings, Slither works well... very well.

The film is based on slug-like alien parasites that crash on Earth from a meteor, and 'infect' an unlucky man before they attempt to take over the population of the town turning them into zombie hosts. Slither has a lot of positive things going for it. We are given a lot of great gore that will please the horror fan in us all, plus we're also given a good degree of suspense, and to be honest the film is actually pretty frightening in places (such as the bathtub scene.) While not being an original idea, the script has obviously been well thought out and planned as everything fits together nicely and it has a solid plot. And thanks to good casting all around the stars of Slither are excellent in their roles. The characters are great and very funny at times especially the town mayor. The special effects are excellent, well above what I was expecting. I thought that the aliens were fantastic (who would have thought that big slugs from outer space could be scary) and the intergalactic romance (while not usually my cup of tea) has been done well and again is rather funny. As I've mentioned Slither is not an original film and is more of a remake / spoof, but it works so well that I sure we can let that 'pass.'

Despite all that, I'll admit that it's not perfect. I found the dialogue to be a bit tacky in places. Some of the action scenes could have been better, and while it is one of those films that are not meant to be taken seriously it is rather too far fetched even for me.

Slither is an interesting movie. It's a B-movie with a B-movie cast that doesn't have anything going for it. There should be nothing in this movie to make it work, but somehow it does.

Slither is one of the funniest horrors in recent years. The whole film is done with a knowing smile and doesn't take itself to seriously - a boxing dear?

Nathan Fillion also brings his easy-going Firefly charm and makes the character his own. In other hands, the sherriff could have come across as all serious and annoy, but Fillion, makes him fun and sarcastic.

There's no plot, but the gore is great and most of the horrific sequences are funny at the same time. With Elements of Society and The Thing (referenced in flashbacks to creatures home world), you can't go wrong with this film.

One of the smartest dumb films ever!

Well done, Rhinoman, you are the only one who included the link to the original seventies film. The iconic link was there of the girl in the bath from the original, but this time the 'slither' wriggled atop the serface and entered via the mouth. In the original, the 'slither' was either intoduced to the bath by a man in a white coat and it swam underwater, or it came into the bath via the overflow, you can guess the rest. But, this film was rather funny, we laughed at quite a few points. It's romp and well worth renting, as we did. Heartedly recommended, take it as face value, you will enjoy.

This offers nothing new. So many horror, sci-fi and zombie flicks are raided that you'll have a hard time naming every referance that goes zooming by. In particular George A. Romero, 50's invaders films and an ending that is lifted straight from Brian Yuzna's 'Society',.

But these referances are all done tongue in cheek and with a careful eye for detail.

The story is cheesy all the way as small town America gets clobbered by a meteorite carrying a less than friendly alien. Pretty soon it has 'taken over' someone and sent it's slug like offspring off to take over everyone it finds. Before long the local sheriff and a small band of helpers are all thats left to fight the little buggers off.

That's about it really and good job too. This doesn't pretend to be anything other than an homage to all films creepy and sci-fi and to keep the humour going as long as possible. For the most part it manages to keep the viewer entertained throughout as the pace is quick and no scene hangs around for very long,(bit like most of the people we're introduced to!),.

The effects are varied in quality from fine to downright tatty,( one scene of the sheriff fighting a psycho deer is pretty awful), but this doesn't detract any more than it does in those ropey sci-fi films of the 50's.

The real saving grace is the humour as the characters all react with total disbelief to the lunacy going on around them. All the performances are fine.

It's only in the final 15 minutes that it seems the film runs out of ideas and finishes fairly weakly,(wait for the credits to end), and the humour begins to dry up.

All in all though it's a fair attempt and is certainly way better than a lot of the big budget blockbuster tat being served up regularly.
