Prepare yourself for this terrifying, twisted, and chilling film that critics are calling "the most entertaining horror movie in years" (Joe Williams, St. Louis Post Dispatch). From the writer of 2004's Dawn of the Dead comes the deliciously demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town. Intent on devouring all life on Earth, this dark force is infecting anyone in its path. Now, it's up to the local sheriff, Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion, Serenity), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation - and shocking mutilation - before it's too late.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A slimy, B-movie homage oozing with affection for low-budget horror films, Slither is creepy and funny -- if you've got the stomach for it.

Common Sense Says
Gross-out comedy-horror mix isn't for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film features graphic gross-out horror and comedy and violence against animals (a cow, deer, dogs, and cats appear as bloody corpses). Grant becomes increasingly gory and bloody, and his body changes with extreme makeup and prosthetics (eventually, he's expanded so much that he fills a room, absorbing other bodies into his own, including one that shows his naked bottom as he sinks into the fleshy mass). The slugs jump into people's mouths, the people turn into flesh-eating zombies (some of these eating images are very gross). Characters shoot guns and stab at the monster. Characters smoke cigarettes and drink in a bar and a party, and Grant drinks once at home.
