SLITHER Q&A Fun!
I saw SLITHER when it first came out in theaters in 2006. Yup, I was there, and I loved it very much. The horror comedy slithery slug fest with Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Rooker is an absolute blast. Since watching it on the big screen that first time I’ve watched it again and again. It’s funny, it’s got good jump scares and is entertaining throughout. Yup. What’s not to love?
Last night, May 2nd, the Egyptian Theater featured a screening of SLITHER with James Gunn in attendance and the Q&A was moderated by Geoff Boucher. (Geoff has a new series called HUMANS FROM EARTH and this was the kick off event.)

The film started with trailers to other James Gunn films; DAWN OF THE DEAD, SUPER and during the Q&A we got to watch the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY trailer too. (Yup, I’m Hooked On A Feeling!!!!)
The Q&A was fun, James Gunn said he hadn’t seen the film in about 5 years (he sat through the whole movie). He talked about his SLITHER cast, getting the film up and running and dealing with some difficulties during the whole making of, yup, that sort of thing. He also gave some tidbits about Guardians Of The Galaxy! Nothing spoilery, but he talked about scoring the movie first, playing the music while they shot the scenes, how Rocket is his Trickster character (which he has in all his movies) and the music used in the trailer. Oh, there’s a new Guardians trailer coming out SOON!!!
It had been a while since I’d been to the Egyptian theater and there’s nothing like a good movie, in 35mm to make a Friday night great! Yup!
