A Horror Movie Made By Horror Fans for Horror Fans
Today, I am a happy gorehound. I’ve just seen “Slither,” and it was a truly good time! OK, let’s face it… this one isn’t going to win any awards for originality. The story here is “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” meets “Night of the Living Dead” with hints of “The Blob,” David Cronenburg’s “Shivers,” and a more-than-passing special effects nod to Brian Yuzna’s “Society.” But it WORKS here.
James Gunn, a veteran of Troma Studios, has made a horror fan’s horror flick. Laced with homages to everything from 1950’s drive in cinema to R.L. Stine’s “Goosebumps” books (not to mention a clip from a Troma movie on a TV in one scene). Gunn clearly knows his audience, because he IS his audience. He delivers up a movie that might be formulaic, but its over-the-top gore, it’s black humor (this is one horror show that never takes itself too seriously), and it’s general gung-ho, pull-no-punches attitude turn what could have been yet another plodding bit of cinematic flotsam into what could well be an instant horror classic on par with “Re-Animator.” If you know what I’m blathering about here, if the names and the titles of these films are familiar, then see “Slither.” You’re going to love it.
Very good and icky horror comedy.
Considering all the mediocre horror movies that have made a rather sizable chunk of money at the box office it is a bit surprising that this one isn’t doing really anything at all. I found it highly entertaining…good gross out effects, and it was funny too. Granted it is not the most original movie made as it seems to borrow a lot of elements from other horror movies (“Night of the Creeps”, “Society”, and any zombie movie) it is still done very well. The story, nothing new, meteor crashes into a typical rural town…person finds said meteor and gets taken over by an alien. It plays out great though as the characters in this flick are very good. The sheriff is done well as is the guy taken over by the alien and his wife. Though by far the funniest character for me was the mayor. Plenty of gore in this one too, and the special effects are done well as well. You will be saying ick a lot, but you will also be laughing too, a bizarre combination to be sure, but hey it works here. You have some zombies here sort of, you have your weird slug creatures and you have a lot of kills as well. I also liked how this one ended as well…an all around good horror comedy for me.
