Slithershould appeal to anyone who enjoys great cheezyness done well and over the top horror-comedy gore. This movie very closely resembles Night of the creeps.
Nathan Fillion is cast as the sheriff Bill Pardy, while Michael Rooker does a fantastic job as the meat-hungry Grant Grant.
One night when Grant leaves on a late-night walk, pissed that his wife rejected his advances, he picks up a local woman where they go for a walk in the woods together rather drunk. In the woods they come across a giant slug thing that injects him with a wormy sort of thing that causes to become "possessed". At first, his wife, Starla, thinks he's just a little "off" but then he develops hives and other signs that something's not right. And there are behavioral issues to go along with the physical deformities. Does he have Lime Disease? Or has he become the host for an alien life form?
First Grant kidnaps the bar woman and injectects her with "wormyness" where she becomes hungry for all sorts of flesh like dead possums and her body blows up to enormous porportions growing these worm like things that eventually overcome her and cause her to explode very much like in that Monty Python restaurant scene. Grant goes on a rampage killing the local farm stock, the police become involved. Chief Bill Pardy, who has long held a torch for Starla, must now hunt down what's left of her husband, who resembles a cross between a squid and the blob.
This movie has all the B-movie cheezyness fun. You got alien slugs, zombie like dead people, a creepy monster to human love story, zombie flesh eating feast scenes where the wormy people feast on bodies in a basement.
This movie is a pleasure and a big laugh to watch.
