What has got into you?

An invasion of slithery slug-like parasites from outer space arriving via meteorite in the redneck town of Wheelsy, South Carolina, where they turn most of the local yokels into flesh-eating zombies...

Having written for the jubilant trash-mongers at Troma Films before scripting 2004's well-received remake of Dawn Of The Dead, writer-director James Gunn crafted this hilarious splatter-fest as an homage to the comically violent horror films of the 1970s and 1980s, and he gets it just right with a low-budget look, perfect casting, grisly make-up effects and judicious use of CGI gore.

With laughs and gross-outs aplenty, Slither is the best horror comedy since Shaun Of The Dead!

OK, so it's nothing new - but at least this horror comedy works well and has likeable characters. After a pretty low key start, the film really gets going - and although the ending is fairly predictable there are still plenty of laughs and some pretty reasonable monster effects along the way.

 a good laugh

I found this film to be very funny in places and would say that the humour is along the same lines as shaun of the dead although not as funnyas that.There are some good one liners and a well selected cast.If you don't laugh at all there is something wrong with you , not the film! It delivers what it offers, a bit of gore with a few laughs thrown in.I wasn't disappointed.

Slither very much reminds me of the little seen 1986 Fred Decker movie Night Of The Creeps. Both films are horror comedy's. This film is great fun with some outlandish gloopy make-up effects. As the alien slug parrasites take over the human population of a little back water town in Hicksville U.S.A turning it's host's into zombie like incubators. At times the film is laugh out loud funny with it's very witty diologue, and credit to Nathan ( Fire Fly, Serenity) Fallon as the reluctant hero.
But for all the films good points, it's not as good as it could have been, All the ingrediants are there for a outstanding comedy, but although a entertaing film, never manages to capture it's full potential.
The film is worth watching, and at £5.99 is worth the money, but is a very slight disappointment.
