Slither: James Gunn’s riotous gorefest is coming to Blu-ray
Before he saved comic book cinema with his witty, warm and weird Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn toiled in terror, getting his star with the scatological cult film imprint Troma, writing the Dawn of the Dead remake screenplay and writing and directing the uproariously slimy Slither, the deliciously-demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town.
Making its Blu-ray debut as a Deluxe Collector’s Edition Blu-ray on August 1st, 2017 from Scream Factory, this delightfully-disgusting creature feature comes jam-packed with bonus features, including a new audio commentary with Gunn, actor Nathan Fillion and actor Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead, Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer), a new interview “The Genesis of Slither” with Gunn, a new interview with actor Gregg Henry, audio commentary with Gunn and Fillion, deleted and extended scenes with optional commentary by Gunn, Slithery Set Tour with actor Fillion, and much, much more! Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting ShoutFactory.com
Synopsis: The sleepy town of Wheelsy could be any small town in America — somewhat quaint and gentle, peopled with friendly folks who mind their own business. But just beneath the surface charm, something unnamed and evil has arrived…and is growing. Intent on devouring all life on Earth, this dark and slimy entity is infecting anyone in its path. Now it’s up to the local sheriff, Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion, Firefly, Castle), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation – and shocking mutilation – before it’s too late. This outrageously funny horror film also stars Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect) and Gregg Henry (Body Double, Jason Bourne).
