Review on "Slithis"
18 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every review I've read on this page regarding this movie has been nothing short of outright "bad-mouthing"!!!!!!! if this movie sucked so bad, riddle me this: WHY IS THE CREATOR OF THIS FLICK MAKING SURE THAT EXISTING COPIES CAN NEITHER BE FOUND OR SOLD?! Answer: it didn't suck all that badly. I still have nightmares whenever I remember this movie. For some it might've been a bad "B" movie.....but it's shock value was a "10+" with all it's twist & turns. It did well as a remake for "The Creature From The Black Lagoon"....what gave it the shock value I believed it deserved, was the blood & gore. It wasn't off the scale like the movies today....but it still scared the hell out of you when the SLITHIS monster popped outta nowhere!!!! Give credit where it's due, folks----it was an OK movie for it's time. Truthfully.....I'd be tempted to do a remake of this movie & keep its original title....but with the passing of Stan Winston of late, it might be a bit dicey...but not impossible. THIS MOVIE RATES A "10" WITH ME.....AND I COULD GIVE A DAMN WHO THINKS OTHERWISE!
