Well I actually went to one of those big things they call a theater today and I was really tempted to go see the Hills Have Eyes but I promissed myself I would wait for the uncut versionon DVD in June so I purchased a ticket to go see James Gunn's Slither.
Some of you that saw the movie may have caught the little scene they showed from The Toxic Avenger not a suprise being that it was directed by the Troma alumnus. It started off as what seemed to me to be a southern version of the Blob except with comedy thrills and chills, then it took a wild unsuspecting spin in
another genre direction.
Overall I liked the humorous scenes in this movie but I do think it went overboard a few times but thats just me, I like a serious plot. Those who like Horror/Comedies will love this movie. I thought the acting was done very well. Nathan Fillion also known for his work in Firefly and Serenity held his own and did a wonderful job.
Elizabeth Banks was amazing, the camera really likes her and so do I:} I was dissapointed that there were not any T + A shots, after all it was indeed a "R" rated film. Special effects and gore were outstanding there was a scene that looked like CGI but I wasn't sure. Final note I liked the movie but it isn't something I personally wouldn't wait for DVD.
Thats just me I am not big on horror slash comedy but I admit this one was done very well in that particular genre, so if you do like that I suggest you get off of your behind and go check it out right now! I would rate it 7 out of 10 BTW this is my first review so don't slam me to bad :) (wink)
