Win Condict had to be sewn into the rubber Slithis costume every day because said outfit didn't have any snaps or zippers. Moreover, once Condict was in the costume he had to stay in it for the entire duration of a day's shooting. See more »
I had heard of "Spawn of the Slithis" for a number of years ever since I first heard of it from a showing on the CBS Late Night Movie, where I forgot to actually record and watch it. But thanks to its DVD release, I finally got to see it. I have to admit that my expectations were pretty low, hearing it was a really low budget movie by amateur filmmakers.
Actually, I didn't find the movie completely bad. For a rock bottom low budget, the movie looks a lot more expensive than you'd expect. The "monster suit" actually looks somewhat decent, and the movie is directed in a way that suggests the director had some previous experience directing movies.
Unfortunately, much of the movie is a chore to sit through. There are far less monster attack sequences than you'd think, with much of the movie devoted to endless scenes of the journalist character (who looks amazingly like game show host Bert Convy) going around and investigating. There are also endless conversations between characters, none of which is very interesting. It results in only a few minutes of slaughter and monster stuff.
In the end, I can only recommend the movie to aspiring filmmakers wanting to make their own low budget horror movie - the movie shows both what to do, but especially what NOT to do.
