*** out of ****     Give me intentionally corny genre homages over the usual Hollywood bull-crap any day. Most of the time, these sorts of movies work; and for good reason. Some filmmakers can go beyond the ambitions of a fanboy and really make a solid movie. James Gunn, who penned 2004's "Dawn of the Dead" remake, has officially gone on to direct his own movie with "Slither"; which is indeed a homage to the B-movie side of the horror genre, and at that, I think it's a pretty …

I love horror movies- low budget, high budget, direct to video and in theater- I like them all. But because of this it takes a heck of a lot to actually impress me, rather than simply entertain me. Slither is easily the best horror movie to come along in more than 2 decades since we first saw Sam Raimi's brilliant Evil Dead. Yes, as a horror movie fan I know full well I am on the edge of committing sacrilege here, but trust me, there are many parallels.     Nathan Fillion is …

In general, horror films have gotten smarter in the past few years, but as the genre has become edgy, it has lost much of its humor. There used to be a time when horror movies were both intelligent and funny.

There have been some exceptions, such as SHAUN OF THE DEAD, but overall scary movies just aren't very funny …

With a cast loaded with third-tier stars and up-and-comers such as the ever-reliable Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, Gregg Henry and Tania Saulnier and a writing/directing crew raised on Troma Pictures and cheesy 70's/80's gore flicks, you'd expect "Slither" to be both funny and vomit-inducing. It's got the vomit-inducing part down, but the "funny" falls a little bit short of expectations.    The story is a rehash (or homage) of a ton of old gore flicks. An alien …

James Gunn is quite good in what he does in scriptwriting, and he is a very rare species of people making it in the Hollywood scene without selling out. His scripts always show his true sense of humor and cynicism. The film is some kind of parody of horror flicks and uses a wide range of motives.     In this movie the threat comes from outer space when meteor-like entity directs towards the Earth. It falls apart and a small cocoon gets to the small Southern American town. Soon …
