Slither feels like one of those old monster or creature films back in the 50's & 60's. It's gory, it's absurd at times and it was a solid start for James Gunn as a director.

James Gunn's film is a nice throwback to old school horror, using bucket loads of practical effects over CGI to create the terror. While there is CGI used in the film, the practical work is definitely present and much more effective. The film itself - meh. It's a fine, tough, enjoyable little film. Kind of dumb, but what do you expect?

I enjoyed the campiness factor of this film. The creepy crawlers are not scary, they're disgusting and I think that's why this movie's comedic nature worked. I did like the simple storyline and the fact that the film makers made fun of people that live in mid-America were more droll than flat-out mean. Even though the main lead characters were not fully explored, the side characters made up for it. For instance, the mayor was interesting because he's satirical yet still somewhat likeable. Think of the film as an alien film turned into a zombie movie. Although a little more focus on the alien lifeform could have elevated this picture in a new level, it's still not bad. This movie will suit anyone who is easily disgusted. It reminded me of the 80's with films like "Dead Alive."
