From the depths of the endless space, a flaming meteorite crashes into the dark woods of the sleepy town of Wheelsy, South Carolina. As the scorched rock reveals its silent content--a baneful parasitic organism--a subtle alien invasion commences, and the war's unlucky first victim is the town's local businessman, Grant. Little by little, as an internal change transforms Grant into an utterly hideous monstrosity, his wife, Starla, starts to feel that something's been eating at him the last few days. Now, before the unstoppable extraterrestrial attack, no one is safe, and to make matters worse, Grant's transformation is far from over yet. Who can stop the slithering army from outer space?Written by
Gunn and Fillion both agree that the most horrifying scene in the movie is the bit with Grant having sex with his wife. "Elizabeth did not have to act much in this scene," says Gunn, "as Rooker was groping her. There he flicks her nipple." Apparently one of the producers fought hard to have Gunn cut the nipple flick.

Don't you look at me like that. Don't you judge me. You've got no idea what it's like to be this hungry! I just ate a pig and I still want more! Damn Republican. We ought to run all you Republicans out of town!

As pure B-movie fun, Slither pulls no punches.
It is absolute fun, plain and simple. It gets in, does it scares and it's laughs, and gets out quick. As what it was meant to be, it was absolutely brilliant. It does its own thing, and it does it perfectly, and the result is pure entertainment, nothing more. So, if you like movies like Shaun of the Dead, Army of Darkness, Dead Alive, Gremlins, Tremors, or anything in that vein, you will like this movie.
Or if you just wanna see Captain Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) again on the big screen and wistfully wipe a tear or two away, you can go see this movie too.
It's creepy, it's gleefully gross, it's HILARIOUS, and I don't think I wasted a single minute watching it. Great movie.
