SLITHER

Slither
Directed and Written by James Gunn










At what point does the pastiche go up a subversive notch? Brenda ballooning to a planet of flesh and that wet squish she makes every time she tries to move? Or when she pops like a zit spewing alien slugs over everybody? Or when one of the slugs crawls into a naked girl’s mouth and she gets flashes of its homeworld? Or maybe when that tentacle slices a guy in half and his guts slip out - - -but not before he blinks and makes the tear flap for a bit, also known as the part where the pastiche goes up a notch to gore nirvana. * * * *

Probably redundant, but I basically agree with you

Nice. I like Rooker here a lot but then I've always liked him. It doesn't look like he's wanting for work, but I still think he's underrated.

Not just Rooker but Filiion and the whole cast is good. Gunn is a surprised--I never expected anyone with anything to do with Scooby Doo to be competent.
