Monster fun

If you need a top notch grade B monster movie, look no further than Slither. It's another version of the small town attacked by alien beastie story. It doesn't do anything new, but what it does it does well. It reminds me most of Tremors, another town in peril tale. It's humorous without being a spoof. It is mildly scary, with a shock or two. It is nasty, but not in the eyeballs in a blender mode so popular today. Instead it is nasty in that you just stepped on a slug sort of way. The encouter with things ooey and gooey, which is what the monster is. There's no hidden critique to be discussed or moral issues debated, it's just a fun monster movie. I love monster movies so I really liked it.
