A Disgusting First Look at James Gunn’s ‘Slither’

James Gunn, who got his start with Troma, made a trip to the San Diego Comic Con to help promote his first feature film Slither, which is already sounding more and more amazing by the minute. A recent test screening indicated that we might be in for a real treat with this slimy creepfest. Inside you’ll find the first image from the film, which definitely sets the tone from Strike Entertainment’s (Universal) film, which hits theaters January 6th. Starla, the most beautiful woman in her small town, enlists the help of Bill, the handsome young police chief, to deal with her husband, Grant. Grant is infected with an alien plague, which has turned him into a slithering, flesh-eating creature. As Grant’s murder spree evolves from pets to people, the disease threatens to overrun the town with slithering, worm-like creatures. Now it’s up to Starla and Bill to stop the plague before it spreads further and kills everything on Earth.
