James Gunn’s Slither delivers. It’s hilarious and it’s really icky – my date to the premiere in LA last week almost threw up (which left poor Mr. Gunn a little disappointed). Slither is a complete blast, a gooey helping of horror fun. Expect plenty of coverage from CHUD.com in the coming weeks, including my exclusive one on one interview with Gunn himself.
The film opens March 31st, but to whet your appetites (which you’re just going to lose when you see the film), here’s some cool Slither related stuff to get you through the rest of the work week:
Download a Brenda Pet: In the film poor Brenda becomes the incubator for a zillion nasty parasites. Now you can download her to your desktop and feed her rotting meat to make her the perfect womb!
Hunting Season: Slither takes place on the first night of deer season in rural Wheelsy. Of course no one imagined that the townsfolk might be the ones getting hunted by slimy alien slugs. In this game you’re trying to turn the tables and blast the things before they can get in your mouth and take you over.
Slither trailer: I think this one is pretty self-explanatory. Except that it’s not! The link here will take you to the official Slither MySpace page – which has the red band version of the trailer. That means it has more gore, more slime, and the use of the word fuck – a word that is much easier to find in the film than a “needle in a fuckstack,” as the charming mayor of Wheelsy puts it.
