"Slither" (2006) ist ein Horrorfilm von James Gunn (u.a. "Scooby Doo", "Dawn of the Dead" Remake)...

Wheelsy ist ein kleines, beschauliches Örtchen in den USA. Die Bewohner sind ganz normal, vielleicht abgesehen vom etwas exzentrischen Grant Grant (Michael Rooker, u.a. "Mallrats", "CSI: Miami", "Stargate Kommando SG-1"). Doch irgendetwas scheint sich zu ändern. Denn langsam verschwinden sowohl seine Haustiere als auch seine Frau...

"Slither" - mit dem schönen deutschen Untertitel "Voll auf den Schleim gegangen" - startete am 22. Juni 2006 in den deutschen Kinos...

KRAKEN: [...] Well you got the sequel on your hands, so if the movie does well will you make the sequel?
JAMES GUNN: I don’t know I mean the thing that would make me want to do it is because I liked doing this movie and I liked the people. Um, but I don’t want to do it next and I’ve actually already, it’s already come up a number of times and they wanted me to start developing it already.
But here’s the thing. They’re going to want to do the sequel probably and then if I don’t do it especially they’re going to want to do a sequel where like, this stuff goes on and it’s not the same characters, and to me the thing that I would like to see in the sequel is what happens to those [...]

[...] The effects in the film are stupendous. I love great gore and this film definitely suffers no shortage in that department. Any effect that makes me cringe while gleefully yelling, ‘Damn!!’ at the same time is a winner in my book and those moments are plenty in SLITHER. From exploding bodies to a character shucked like a clam, Gunn never seems to disappoint with the splatter.
Solid performances from Michael Rooker and Elizabeth Banks ground the film and prevent it from going into total schlock. While there is still going to be some inherent silliness in a failed love story between a girl and her alien-host husband, these actors devotion to their characters helps the film avoid total silliness. In a supporting role as a small town police officer investigating the situation, Nathan Fillion masters the intentional comic relief of the film with some unforgettable one-liners.
Complete with sub-stories that tie in perfectly near the end, SLITHER is an all around solid film. Gunn has managed once again to take a tired genre and give it a boost with tight storytelling, directing, and humor. Lots of fun. [...]

[...] Mr. Gunn obviously knows his horror and you can feel him having fun with the genre. There are dark country songs instead of horror music, and detailed prosthetics (instead of just computer effects) that are cringe worthy in a complimentary sense. [...]

[10.09.2005] Bei AICN gibt es Kritiken zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] it wasn't the story that made me love this movie; it was the characters and the comedic timing that won me over. I don't think I've laughed so much during a horror movie since Shawn of the Dead. The script was clever and the actors had impeccable timing and delivery. One of my favorite characters was the mayor. He is not your typical mayor; drinking and cussing in public. His lines are some of the best in the movie, and he particularly shines in a scene where he expresses his panic through the lack of a soda can. Nathan Fillion also kills as the sheriff (although I'm definitely biased because of my love for Firefly), he has the same wit and charm as he does in his other work and proves once again that he can carry a feature length movie on his shoulders.
One word of warning before I leave you: THIS MOVIE IS GROSS. If you don't enjoy gore or seeing slime and blood all the time... this movie is not for you. But if you want some good clean (I mean... uh... completely disgusting) fun at the movies this January, I'd highly recommend Slither.

[21.07.2005] AICN berichtet über die "Slither"-Präsentation auf der Comic-Con...
[...] They showed a trailer that had lots of gore. It started with the names of classic horror movies like CARRIE, HALLOWEEN, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, etc, then went on to say that they were all pussies!
Maybe it was the arrogant intro to the trailer, but I really wasn't much impressed with what I saw. I seemed to be in the minority, though. Kraken, who took all my Con pics, thought the trailer looked great. It had lots of gore, but it looked like it was shot on video. I liked the effects work that I saw. Reminded me a tad of SOCIETY with that kind of radical mutated or deformed human thing going on and the image of a couple dozen alien zombie-making slugs crawling over a car window as the girl inside screams, little sluggie shadows crawling all over the car was really kinda nice. [...]

[08.07.2005] Bei AICN gibt es eine positive Kritik zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] The story is not really anything new but it is given some truly original spins and ideas. It’s basically a killer alien slug brain burrowing zombie gore movie with great acting, high production values (compared to most in the genre) and some classic one liners. I can already hear the cheers of delight on the horror festival circuit. [...]

Universal has set a Jan. 6, 2006, release date for its upcoming SF thriller film Slither, starring Nathan Fillion (Serenity) and marking the feature-film directorial debut of writer James Gunn (last year's Dawn of the Dead remake). The film had originally been eyed for a Halloween 2005 release.
Slither also stars Michael Rooker, Elizabeth Banks and Gregg Henry in a story about an alien parasite that infects a resident of a small town in South Carolina, then threatens to spread to the rest of the population. It recently wrapped production in Vancouver, B.C. [...]

[17.03.2005] HNR sprach mit James Gunn über "Slither"...
[...] this is a horror movie that takes different things from different eras. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligary, The Golem and all those really old silent films... up through, you know, the 70’s movies that I love, the 50’s science-fiction movies, the 30’s and 40’s Universal horror films... I just love all of it! This movie, you know, I think the center of it is we’re bringing back some of, you know...the 80’s feel to horror films because it’s just larger than life. Big... you know... disgusting action sequences and really over-the-top stuff. But at the same time, tonally, you know, we’re... my favorite horror film is Rosemary’s Baby and there’s a lot of stuff that’s tonally, very down-to-earth, very realistic. The performances are played very subtlety... we worked hard on casting the movie, just so we could get the best actors around instead of the biggest stars. There are just different things from different eras. Also, this is a story about a man who, who loves a woman, who becomes... the man becomes a monster and continues to love the woman. So there’s a sort sadness to it that I think the old Universal horror films had... The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Frankenstein... these monster movies where you really felt something for the character himself. It wasn’t just a, you know, an alien... an unthinking alien you know? [...]

[21.02.2005] Moviehole meldet...
"Slither" director James Gunn tells Moviehole this morning that he has now filled all the supporting parts in his upcoming horror pic.
In addition to the headliners, there have been some more names cast including Brenda James, Don Thompson, Haig Sutherland, and Jennifer Copping.
Gunn's former employee, Troma big-wig Lloyd Kaufman is also believed to be making an appearance in the film.
"I am overjoyed with the cast as we head into our third week. The special effects by Todd Masters are also incredible. It is a strange, scary, character-driven little horror film. We are trying to create a new animal, as far as horror flicks go", says Gunn.
Brenda James recently starred in the Spielberg series "Taken", playing Dr. Ellen Greenspan. She also appeared in genre efforts "The Attic Expeditions" and "The Dead Zone".
Don Thompson also appeared in Spielberg's "Taken". His other credits include "Strange Frequency" and the episode of "Smallville" called "Tempest".
Most will remember Haig Sutherland as Chloe's Boy Thing in the episode of "Smallville" called "Rush". His other credits include genre efforts "Riding the Bullet" and "Halloween Resurrection".

[31.01.2005] Moviehole meldet...
James Gunn, prepping for his new horror film "Slither", which he's manning the loud-speaker for, as director, tells Moviehole today that he's just signed film fave Gregg Henry ["Payback", "Femme Fatale"] to play a pivotal role in the pic.
"Henry will be playing the role of jack maccready, the jumpy mayor of wheelsy", says Gunn, writer of last year's "Dawn of the Dead" redo. "Gregg is another one of my favorite actors, from movies like Payback and Raising Cain and, shit, a million more. I am nearly done assembling the perfect horror movie cast".
Henry's a bit of a newcomer to the horror genre - though did star in the short-lived "Psycho" TV series spin-off "Bates Motel" in 1987 - though he's done a plethora of thrillers, including the aforesaid "Payback" with Mel Gibson, "Raising Cain", and "Body Double". Most recently he played Jonathan Wallace on TV's "24".
Henry joins Michael Rooker, Elizabeth Banks, and Tania Saulnier [the girl who got frozen by her boyfriend in an episode of "Smallville"] in the film, which centres on a small town that is overtaken by aliens.

[07.12.2004] CS! meldet...
Dread Central talked to "Scooby-Doo" series and Dawn of the Dead screenwriter James Gunn about his new project called Slither, on which he is making his directorial debut.
The film is currently in pre-production in Vancouver and is being produced by Eric Newman (Dawn of the Dead), Strike Entertainment and Gold Circle Films (White Noise). Here's a clip from Gunn on the story, which centers on a small town.
"What I'm really being influenced by here is a combination of '80s horror movies because what happens is this alien disease takes forms and works its way into the populace whatever way it can," explains Gunn. "Some of that change is zombification type stuff and a lot of it is mutation type stuff. It's very Cronenberg-esque and it's very influenced by the tone of Manga artist Junji Ito's Uzamaki."
