Friday the 13th is synonymous with doom and gloom, but the folks at Scream Factory turned the day into a celebration with news that James Gunn’s criminally underrated horror-sci-fi gore-fest Slither will finally (finally!) get the Blu-ray release it has so long deserved. Released theatrically in 2006, Slither had the potential to push big-budget horror-comedy into the forefront of the genre landscape, but a lack of studio support allowed the film to come and go with little fanfare. But those familiar with the movie have long agreed: Slither is both unique and elite!
Per Scream Factory’s Official Facebook Page:
Our Friday the 13th celebration continues with one more reveal of a title coming this Summer: James Gunn’s cult classic horror comedy SLITHER is planned for a Collector’s Edition release! No other details to report at this time.
Obviously, we’ll keep you posted as additional details emerge. Are you a fan of Slither? Sound off in the Comments section!
Official Synopsis: A small town is taken over by an alien plague, turning residents into zombies and all forms of mutant monsters.
Slither stars Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, and Michael Rooker.
