Performers, Cast and Crew:
Entertainment Weekly - 04/07/2006
"Gunn lovingly hacks up the whole horror-comedy genre with the giddily disgusting tale..." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 04/11/2006
"[W]hat makes it work is how nimbly it slaloms from yucks to yuks, slip-sliding from horror to comedy and back again on its gore-slicked foundation."
Los Angeles Times - 04/02/2006
"SLITHER is a throwback to the playful, squishy, slightly queasy-making horror films of the 1980s..."
USA Today - 03/31/2006
"For those who enjoy entertaining gross-out horror flicks, SLITHER satisfies. The squeamish should probably keep their distance."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2006
"[Gunn has] raised his game with his debut as a director of features....The horror and gross-out punch lines are leavened by a dry humour."
Total Film - 07/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[Gunn is] clearly having a riot, slathering SLITHER's monsters with 300 gallons of methylcellulose slime....Great fun..."
Box Office - 06/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "[Gunn] happily packs this horror parody with a virtual jukebox of familiar movie references."
Rolling Stone - 11/30/2006
"Gunn takes a plot...and has his wicked, gory way with it. You'll love getting slimed."
