It’s been a while since we’ve been able to enjoy a good, gross creature feature — like, perhaps, "Tremors" or even "Gremlins" — and that’s what it looks like we’re in for with "Slither," from James Gunn, the writer of 2004’s "Dawn of the Dead."
Gunn also wrote and acted in "The Specials," wrote "Tromeo and Juliet" for Troma Studios, and is responsible for the live-action "Scooby-Doo" movies. This time around, he directs from his own script, with a cast that includes fanboy favorite Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, Gregg Henry, and his own wife, Jenna Fischer (better known as Pam from "The Office"). Gunn’s also nabbed appearances by Rob Zombie and cult figure Lloyd Kaufman, but sadly, no cameo by his brother, Sean Gunn ("Gilmore Girls"’ Kirk).
"Slither" crawls into theaters March 31.
