Slither (2006)


Arguably a remake of the 80s cult classic Night of the Creeps, this horror tale is about an alien slug that takes over the body of Grant Grant. Unfortunately Grant becomes a hideous, gelatinous alien that lets loose a hoard of alien slugs on the town. Now, as people are dying and resurrecting from the slugs it’s up to the town sheriff and Grant’s young wife to save what is left from the town before the alien species takes over. The film accomplishes what it set out to do; it’s gritty, it’s witty, it’s funny but it comes at the cost of gore, blood and disgusting body horror scenes. It effectively captures the heart of 80s horror using practical effects and successfully homages the Troma films of the 80s.
