night seventeen: slither. [halloween movie fest, 2016.]

“Well, now that is some fucked up shit.

This was an unexpected replacement for another film. It’s a long story, but with the recent trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, it makes sense to return to my first James Gunn film.


Slither is a crazy, comedic, gross-out monster feature. The goal at every turn is to be as gross as possible. Gunn, along with a great cast, makes it work. Also, you get Fillion dropping F-bombs, which is rare since he is usually appearing on network television, and is always fun.

Will I Ever Watch It Again? It will be a while, but I bet I’ll revisit it a third time.
