James Gunn's Insane Gorefest Horror Film SLITHER is Coming to Blu-ray!

Before James Gunn started working with Marvel and launched the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise, he made a crazy horror film called Slither. This would such a wonderfully demented horror film filled with all kinds of nasty blood and gore. Who would have thought at the time that Slither was released that Gunn would have ended up directing two of the best Marvel films!?

The 2006 film is now making its Blu-ray debut thanks to Scream Factory, who is releasing it as a Deluxe Collector's Edition on August 1st. As you might imagine it's going to be packed full of bonus feature for fans to enjoy including commentary by Gunn and stars Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker. That should be fun to listen to while watching the movie!!

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).
