For those of you looking to the next corny horror to catch in theatres-- no, Snakes on Plane isn't out till this summer --Slither is your next best bet. Starring Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks, the film looks like the perfect mix of disgust and humor.
Slither is an edgy blend of heart-stopping terror, wry humor and surprising humanity from genre-bending screenwriter James Gunn, whose Dawn of the Dead became one of 2004's most surprising hits.
The sleepy town of Wheelsy could be any small town in America – somewhat
quaint and gentle, peopled with friendly folks who mind their own business.
But just beneath the surface charm, something unnamed and evil has arrived...
and is growing. No one seems to notice as telephone poles become clogged
with missing pet flyers, or when one of the town's richest citizens, Grant
Grant (Michael Rooker), begins to act strangely. But when farmers' livestock
turn up horribly mutilated and a young women goes missing, Sheriff Bill
Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and his team, aided by Grant's wife Starla (Elizabeth
Banks), uncover the dark force laying siege to their town... and come face-to-face
with an older-than-time organism intent on absorbing and devouring all life
Just when you thought that the film couldn't look any grosser, Universal Pictures has released six new clips for the film over at IESB. How do they look? Well, if feeling a tad bit uncomfortable is what you're going for, then these are perfect!
