Slither

Genre: Horror; Starring: Elizabeth Banks, Nathan Fillion, Jenna Fischer, Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker; Director: James Gunn; Author: James Gunn; Release Date Wide: 03/31/2006; Runtime (in minutes): 93; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Universal

Slither, an inexplicable theatrical flop that deserves a second chance, is a gleefully gross throwback to ’50s sci-fi invasion flicks that concerns a small suburb invaded by otherworldly beasties. Occasionally incoherent, Slither will please fans of, say, early Evil Dead-era Sam Raimi.

EXTRAS A ton, including deleted and extended scenes, multiple featurettes, a video diary, commentary with actor Nathan Fillion and director James Gunn, a tutorial on making your own horror blood, and a wonderfully vulgar gag reel that’s replete with flatulence.
