Take equal parts The Fly, The Thing, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, zombie movies, and countless other horror movie inspirations and what do you get? You get Slither. James Gunn's movie is a hilarious throwback to some of the best of the cheesy B-movie horror flicks of the past, adding comedy into the fray and a good cast to boot. There's plenty of familiar faces and familiar plot points you'll probably see coming a mile away, but it won't change the fact that Slither is a very entertaining flick.
|Starla has a problem: her husband eats wild animals and is apparently, an alien.|
After Starla rejects Grant's advances in bed one night, Grant goes off for a brisk walk to cure his case of the blue balls. He meets up with another woman in the forest, and before they get frisky, they come across the meteor lying in the boonies. Grant gets too close while investigating, and gets a worm shot at him by some weird slug looking thing. It buries into his chest and after losing and regaining consciousness, he heads back home.
|Nathan Fillion is hilarious. The guy is such a bro.|
|Kill it with fire! Or nuke it. Or BOTH.|
|Favorite part of the movie? Why yes, yes it is.|
TL;DR - B-movie gross out fun with plenty of one-liners and people getting split open - 8/10
