Movie of the Week - Slither

This week’s movie is Slither (2006).

The horror-comedy is about a small town that is overrun by an alien plague, rendering its inhabitants monsters. Written and directed by James Gunn, the film blends scares and laughs creating a fun experience (Gunn also wrote the remake of Dawn of the Dead). Gunn uses Zack Snyder’s composer and production designer from Dawn of the Dead (Tyler Bates and Andrew Neskoromny respectively), while tapping TV cinematographer Gregory Middleton to shot the film. The cast is great with Nathan Fillion starring (and his fans are already adding this to their queues) and supporting work from Elizabeth Banks, Gregg Henry (who is also great in The Ritches) and Michael (The Rook) Rooker. What makes the film great is Gunn’s sense of humor mixed with the likes of Fillion, Banks and Henry. While the film is scary, it is more hilarious. It is a must for fans of horror-comedies. Check out the trailer.
