`Slither' is all icks and hicks

Review C-

March 31, 2006|By ROGER MOORE | ROGER MOORE,ORLANDO SENTINEL

Slither slimes its way into theaters, an old-fashioned creature-feature where the emphasis is on cheese.

This writing-directing debut from the guy who concocted that ripoff known as Dawn of the Dead isn't that scary, and it isn't as funny as he seems to think it is. So that means it all comes down to the "ick" factor, which is plenty icky.

Slither (Universal) Starring Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Bank, Michael Rooker. Directed by James Gunn. Rated R. Time 97 minutes.
