Slither: Collector's Edition (2006) - Blu-ray Review

Slither - Blu-ray ReviewGod, I have missed this movie.  Slither has long been my go-to movie when folks I encounter have questions about the often-misunderstood horror-comedy subgenre.  This is highly quotable material and it goes for broke in its commitment to entertain as the zingers and its ...
