Storyline

In this blend of the B movie classic The Blob (1958), and some Romero's zombies film, a meteorite collides in a small town. Grant finds it, and is infected by a parasite worm, which installs in his brain and causes him a creepy transformation into a monster. Starla, his wife, and Bill, a policeman, will try to stop him and the plague of worms generated by the creature. Written by Alejandro Frias

Great Sci-Fi Horror Comedy
16 December 2006 | by (US of A) – See all my reviews

I would highly recommend this to anybody who thinks 'Sci-Fi Horror Comedy' is good fun. This movie contained elements from some of my favorite movies: The Blob, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Night of the Living Dead, and a little bit of The Thing. The plot has a slow build but never fails to lose your interest. Every time you think you know what's going on the script moves in a new direction until you arrive at the truly bizarre climax. The acting is a little weak from the star (Elizabeth Banks) but the rest of the cast is pretty solid and any Joss Whedon fans will recognize the Firefly captain Reynolds in a great role as the sheriff. The special effects work well without being flashy or huge-budget and some of the gross-out scenes are as stomach-churning as you could hope for. Throw in gratuitous profanity, one-liners, and redneck hicks, and you've got the perfect recipe for an alien-zombie-romance-comedy classic. A bit of the bonus for the guys-- there is a chance your girlfriends will like this one too thanks to a well-executed underlying theme of love conquering all. But they better not mind some horrific violence along the way. As a general fan of any kind of horror-comedy, I can't help but give Slither an A+.
