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 »
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!
