Fun, Frightening, and Funny
Slither was a movie I was hesitant to see. From the previews I saw, the impending gross factor kept me a way - at first. Persuade by friends and a love for Nathan Fillon from Firefly, I gave it a try. I found Slither to be a delightful surprise.
Slither offered great humor in the style of Evil Dead and Tremors. There is even a scene in the beginning that is very Raimiesque. The blood and gore is actually minimal, and most of the violence is more surreal alien gore. It can be gross at times, but the humor and the few jump out of your seat moments overshadow it.
The acting was good as well. Elizabeth Banks is lovely and funny as the devoted wife. Nathan Fillon takes the lead as the wise cracking police officer. But it's Gregg Henry that steals the show as the unstable, foul mouthed, Mr. Pibb obsessed mayor.
Slither gets 9/10 from me because, why'll good, it doesn't have the most original story and it still ranks one below Evil Dead on the horror comedy scale. Nonetheless, Slither is a delightful and fun horror comedy.
