Five New Slimy Pics from ‘Slither’, New Synopsis

Today we’ve been provided with five new stills and a new synopsis from Universal Pictures’ upcoming Slither, which stars Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker, Elizabeth Banks, Rheagan Wallace, Brenda James, Don Thompson, Haig Sutherland, Lloyd Kaufman and Jennifer Copping. Hitting theaters March 31st, 2006, this James Gunn pic looks to be like one hell of a slimy throw-back movie to the ’80s, and I for one am excited as all hell! Read on for a look at all of the new pics and the synopsis…
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. No one seems to notice as telephone poles become clogged with missing pet flyers, or when one of the town’s richest citizens, Grant Grant ( Michael Rooker), begins to act strangely. But when farmers’ livestock turn up horribly mutilated and a young women goes missing, Sheriff Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion) and his team, aided by Grant’s wife Starla (Elizabeth Banks), uncover the dark force laying siege to their town… and come face-to-face with an older-than-time organism intent on absorbing and devouring all life on Earth.
