"...Slither" is a biological version of "Uzumaki."
Gunnís latest film, "Slither," is set in the small, sleepy town of Wheelsy that is inhabited by quaint, but friendly folks who mind their own business.
Just beneath the surface charm, however, something unnamed and evil has arrived...and is growing. No one seems to notice as telephone poles become plastered with missing pet flyers, or when one of the townís richest citizens, Grant (Michael Rooker), begins to act strangely.
But when farmersí livestock turn up horribly mutilated and a young woman goes missing, Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and his team, aided by Grantís wife Starla (Elizabeth Banks), uncover the dark forces that are laying siege to their town and come face-to-face with an older-than-time organism intent on absorbing and devouring all life on Earth.
A detail from the interview with James Gunn:
Q. How would you describe "Slither?" A monster movie, gory horror, perhaps a serio-comic sci-fi thriller? Or a throwback to the gory fun flicks in the 80s?
A. Yes to all of those. "Slither" has plenty of elements that are very modern, but the fun is inspired by the movies of the 1980s. A lot of the movies I loved had a certain creepiness to them that took you places you didnít expect to go. I think the element of creepiness has been lost in todayís horror films where more emphasis is on big shocks and scares for the audience. "Slither" really concentrates on character and creepiness.
charlieofthedead01: Hey James! I was wondering if you could share an interesting or amusing story about having to work with Troma.
James_Gunn: An interesting story about working with Troma...There are hundreds...
James_Gunn: Alot of them involve stunts gone wrong and crappy special effects.But I would say the most interesting is...The time Jane Jensen had a breakdown because I poured maggots all over her...I thought she was acting, but she actually had a breakdown She's forgiven me since.
charlieofthedead01: Oh, on Tromeo and Juliet?
James_Gunn: Yes, on Tromeo and Juliet.
What's so wrong about getting poured all over with maggots?
