Slither completly rocked
Monday, April 3, 2006

I loved Slither. It was good to see some of the old gang. I think that the delivery that Capt. Tightpants gave was completly worth going to the movie for. There were several people in there and I think that by word of mouth this movie will get a lot of people to see it.
I'm glad that we went to see it. It was gross in spots, but still very funny.

Agreed, I had no intention of seeing it until I heard the Cap'n was in it.

It was funny, campy, gross and the most comletely wonderful horror movie ever.

I went to see it too, and was pleasantly, thoroughly entertained -- and I never pay to see horror movies. I thought the acting was genuine, the characters well done and sympathetic. The horror aspect wasn't gratuitous, yet perfectly icky and integral to the plot.


But oh my golly, some psychology prof is going to go to town on the Freudian aspects of those tentacles . . . seeing Nathan get violated was, um, well. Let's just say. It was creepifying.

My favorite parts were the small gestures, like Nathan as Bill Pardy, when he was chatting up Starla at the dance, saying how he was trying to get a buzz on, but he's just like too buff or has too much muscle mass for the alcohol to kick in. Nate pulls it off so well, in a charming, nervous way. And when he takes his cap off for Brenda when he's talking to her in the barn, even in her um, altered state. So funny and sweet. And how klutzy he was fleeing the zombified citizenry, falling out of the squad car and over a fence. He was so in over his head. It was hilarious.

And Kylie, the gutsy teenager, how she took out the very determined wee creature that attacked her in the bathtub -- Kylie being armed only with her brand new salon fingernails. Usually those damsel in distress scenes just piss me off, but this one had me on the edge of my seat. She kicked ass! But then, when the wee creature comes back at her, all wounded and whimpering but still game to make another go, you find yourself feeling sorry for it, briefly. Well done.

Another cool thing was that no one in the movie looked like a movie star. That was refreshing. And Greg Henry as the Mayor was great. He got all the best lines!

I did enjoy it, and I plan to go see it again, since I was laughing so much I missed alot of the dialogue.
