We’ve been waiting a long time to add this one to our collection.
We told you earlier this year that Scream Factory was set to bring Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn’s horror-comedy Slither to Blu-ray for the very first time, and today brings more details along with an art reveal. Gunn himself shared the first details over on his Facebook page, revealing that the Collector’s Edition Blu-ray of his ’06 film will arrive on July 25th.
I’d like to officially announce that after MANY YEARS of waiting, and me endlessly bitching to the rights holders, FINALLY my directorial debut Slither will be available on Blu-Ray. The wonderful folks from Scream Factory will be distributing a brand new edition on July 25 of this year. It will have lots of cool extras including a NEW COMMENTARY FROM ME AND THE CAST. It’s like “When Harry Met Sally” only it’s “When Gunn Met Rooker (and Fillion and Banks and Henry).” These people all changed my life. And Slither is how they did it. Oh and check out the cool new artwork. I love it.
Slither tells “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), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation – and shocking mutilation – before it’s too late.”
The film also stars Michael Rooker, Elizabeth Banks and Gregg Henry.
You can pre-order your copy over on the Shout! Factory website.
