Watch: Slither 2006 123movies, Full Movie Online – From the depths of the endless space, a flaming meteorite crashes into the dark woods of the sleepy town of Wheelsy, South Carolina.

Little by little, as an internal change transforms Grant into an utterly hideous monstrosity, his wife, Starla, starts to feel that something’s been eating at him the last few days. Now, before the unstoppable extraterrestrial attack, no one is safe, and to make matters worse, Grant’s transformation is far from over yet. Who can stop the slithering army from outer space?.
Plot: A small town is taken over by an alien plague, turning residents into zombies and all forms of mutant monsters.

First off, I’m a horror nut and no matter what anybody else says, this is NOT a rip-off of “Night of the Creeps” or “The Deadly Spawn”. James Gunn himself said at a recent Fangoria Weekend of Horrors in Chicago that the only film that played a part in “Slither” was David Cronenberg’s “They Came from Within” (AKA – “Shivers”). There’s a blatant homage to it that fans of the Cronenberg film will spot right away, and that’s cool. That what James Gunn is about. You forget, this is a guy from the house that Kaufman built – Troma. Nods and inside jokes abound in “Slither”. It’s a horror movie for real horror movie fans. Slimy, not gory. Funny, not insipid. “Slither” is the next logical step from the guy who wrote the remake of “Dawn of the Dead”. It’s a little more fun, a lot less serious, and features a great cast that makes this movie what it should be – hugely entertaining. Perfect, no. But it sure is fun and makes you look forward to what he’ll do next.
Starla Grant (Elizabeth Banks) is a hot teacher in the small town of Wheelsy. Her husband Grant Grant (Michael Rooker) is a bit of a jerk. He’s out in the woods with a young lady and finds an alien in a meteor that had fallen close to town. He gets stuck by the alien and he begins to change. Meanwhile childhood friend Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) has just been promoted to Chief of Police.
Everybody is playing a country bumpkin. The slugfest is more gross than scary. This is something of a goofy horror. There is good entertainment value in that. The dialog could be sharper and funnier. Writer/director James Gunn isn’t the most accomplished. But this is still a playful little gross slimy time.
