But is it any good? A small town is infected with an alein plague, turning the inhabitants into zombies...

This sounds like a typical dirty Yankee rip off (Clonus and The Island anyone? Bastards), this time of cracking Aussie zombie film Undead:

http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0339840/

However, I'm not jumping to conclusions, and I'd like to see and decide for myself. So, does anyone know if it's any good or not? I've checked IMDb (7.0, pretty fucking good) but I disagree with quite a few of their scores. So, mi compadres, any clue?

On James Gunn's blog, we've got details of the Slither DVD.

http://blog.mys...90-800446d492bb

- DVD commentary by James Gunn and Nathan Fillion.

- Deleted scenes (with commentary).

- Extended scenes (with commentary).

- The Gag Reel -- in which you can see just a hint of how many takes Elizabeth Banks screwed up by laughing.

- "Who is Bill Pardy?" - this was a surprise made for Nathan at the wrap party, in which the cast and crew essentially roasted him.

- "The Sick Minds and Slimy Days of SLiTHER" - A documentary on the making of SLiTHER, featuring the whole cast and crew.

- "Bringing SLiTHER's Creatures to Life" - a documentary on the prosthetics and CGI effects in the movie.

- "Slithery Set Tour with Nathan Fillion" - this is the much longer version of the little bit you can see online here: http://www.yout...h?v=7K3TVIYR87E

- VFX Progressions, from start to finish.

- "The King of Cult: Lloyd Kaufman's On-Set Video Diary" - see the President of Troma Entertainment and the creator of the Toxic Avenger find himself lost in the world of Hollywood with his cameo role in SLiTHER.

- "The Gorehound Grill: Brewin' the Blood" - a short how-to-make-your-own-blood-and-slime video.

Sounds good. All we need now is a release date.

This film is quite a landmark for me, actually. I was quite looking forward to it, and settled down nice and early before anyone else got in. I got a good seat and got comfy.

Adverts galore played as people came in, but it was a morning showing, and there was only about two dozen people maximum in there. Unfortunately, one group were of teenage lads. They came in noisily, and I wasn't bothered. That's what teenage lads are like, and have always been like. I was like that with my friends when I was a teenager, laughing and joking around all the time.

But I knew when to shut up.

They talked through the adverts. Fine, I couldn't give a fuck, I find dirt under my nails more interesting than adverts. They talked through the trailers. Again, fine. The prospect of a group of boisterous youngsters squealing through When A Stranger Calls actually made the film more attractive to me. The Universal logo came up, and the soft background murmurs settled down into expectant silence.

I took a nice deep breath and leaned back, stretching as best you can in a chair designed to give dwarfs deep vein thrombosis.

They carried on talking.

Now, at this point, quantum mechanics made itself known to me in a sort of 2001: A Space Odyssey special effects explosion. There were two possible futures apparent in front of me, the Trousers of Time (cheers, Terry) stretched open to admit my gaze.

In Future #1 I could ask them to be quiet, and get ignored, if not mocked. Then, grass them up to an usher half a dozen times before they get kicked out (if the manager of my local Odeon didn't just basically bottle it, like last time).

In Future #2 I could do something quite rude and unpleasant, but I would get to see the film in peace.

"SHUT THE FUCK UP!"

And then I realised had actually shouted. And they had shut up. I was blushing, because I don't like being loud or rude, and I had just done both. Not just in public, but in a cinema, one of those little sacred quiet spaces, like church, where if you have any respect you don't shout and you don't swear, and you certainly don't do both.

I don't know what came over me. Still, I got to see the film in peace.
