Gross-out horror comedy is my least favorite genre, but this movie's so skillful I have to take my hat off to it. full review
The problem with making a smart horror parody -- and James Gunn's Slither is a smart horror parody -- is that it's kind of like doing a virtuoso performance of 'My Way.' The skill of execution tends to be eclipsed by the tedium of the material. full review
Slither is a labor of love made by a horror aficionado who knows just when to tweak the tropes. full review
Like Tremors, only ickier, Slither is a tongue-in-cheek horror flick that skewers the genre while delivering seat-squirming scares.
This writing-directing debut from the guy who concocted that rip-off known as Dawn of the Dead isn't that scary, and it isn't nearly as funny as he seems to think it is. full review
It's strictly a fun B-movie horror, on the order of Tremors, that somehow got released by a major studio. full review
If the horror scenes are formulaic, the audience will eat up the many jokey interludes the way the zombies feast on possum.
In a year that is heavily front-loaded with horror movies, Slither is easily the best in the class. full review
Slither is seriocomic horror, alternating laughs with gooey, creepy scares. full review
A great bloody joy of B-movie madness, Slither is a hilarious concoction of gore and wisecracks that offers plenty of nods to horror history while maintaining enough slimy integrity to stand, or rather, slither, on its own. full review
I know it's supposed to be silly, but Slither feels more like a scattershot spoof than a fine-tuned piece of entertainment. full review
If you like slime, Slither will push you down the slippery slope to big-screen pleasure.
Slither tries (too hard) to cop the tongue-in-cheek silliness that marks some of the best examples of the genre and ultimately collapses atop itself. It's no Humanoids From the Deep. full review
At last: the mutant alien redneck zombie movie the world has been waiting for. full review
Just when it seemed like the zombie cannibal/parasite from outer space horror comedy had pretty much run its course, along comes Slither, a particularly lively addition to the remarkably durable undead genre.
For those who enjoy entertaining gross-out horror flicks, Slither satisfies. The squeamish should probably keep their distance. full review
Slither isn't scary, it's just what one character says when she spots the slugs from outer space, Grooooosss. And we don't mean that in a good way. full review
Slither is a gross, disgusting, but undeniably amusing treat laden with homages and in-jokes. full review
