Written and directed by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), 2006’s Slither was a box office bomb but has since become a cult classic. Enter Scream Factory, Shout! Factory’s sub-division of cult horror and science-fiction films, known for resurrecting forgotten movies and giving them new life, along with a high-definition transfer.
Now Gunn’s delightfully disgusting creature feature gets a second chance with a deluxe Collector’s Edition Blu-ray, jam-packed with bonus features, including a new audio commentary with Gunn and actors Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker.
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.
Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: Yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.
So here we are, geeks; we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be a month or so into the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!
We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.
With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out Chapter I of our list, The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!
District 9, the new film from director Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson, is being released this Friday, August 14, 2009. With a nice little R-rating, there’s sure to be some heavy human/alien violence going down. In District 9, the aliens supposedly come in peace, but with most alien science fiction movies, that’s usually not the case. Quite the opposite, in fact.
So, in celebration of this new first-contact humans-meet-aliens film that’s getting rave reviews from all who’ve see it so far, we’ve decided to concoct a list of some of the most awesome scenes of aliens killing humans in film. Obviously, there’s been thousands of instances where an alien takes out a human in movies, so finding some of the more outstanding examples was not an easy task. Basically, the movies selected took a death and went a step further…or sometimes, a couple of steps further.
Whether the kill is just ultra-violent, or if it’s completely and disgustingly unique, if it makes viewers cringe when it happens, then it’s worthy of this list. Hopefully we’ve managed to feature some of the elite members of this category.
So without further delay, if you’re not one of the squeamish, click on over and check out our 7 Awesome Alien Kills In Film!
