Trick or Treat: Slither

Slither Official Trailer #1 - Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks Horror-Comedy (2006) HD

Hey guys, it’s October! You know what that means: Halloween is right around the corner! As such, we will be bringing you some of our favorite horror film suggestions, in the hopes that they will lead to some sleepless nights. This is…Trick or Treat!

James Gunn, writer and director of my most anticipated movie of the year decade, Guardians of the Galaxy, has been one of my favorite directors for a long time, and it all started with Slither (or maybe the Dawn of the Dead remake, which he wrote, but I didn’t know that then).

Slither is the story of a man (Michael Rooker) infected with space aliens who want to reproduce and take over, the woman who loves him (Elizabeth Banks), and the small-town sheriff (Nathan Fillion) who has to save the day from the man-puppet and his alien horde.

This movie is a hoot from start to finish, full of both laughs and scares, some really gross sequences, and, well, Nathan Fillion. If you need any more than that, I don’t know what to tell you. But after watching this film, you may gain a little understanding as to why I was over the moon when I heard the announcement that Gunn would be writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy.

Stay tuned tomorrow (Halloween!!!) when I will have a wrap-up of all of this month’s Trick or Treats for your viewing pleasure.
