Back before he signed on to make blockbusters for Marvel, James Gunn was known for much smaller movies as a director: the brilliant horror flick Slither, and the vigilante dark comedy Super.
The former is set for a new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release soon from Scream Factory, and full details on the new offering including a complete list of bonus features have been revealed. You can find all of the info on Scream’s Slither Blu-ray below along with a trailer for the movie and the awesome cover art.
“A wickedly fun horror flick!” – David Germain, Associated Press
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 co-writer and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, comes the deliciously demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town. 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, Serenity), 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).
