Slither slithers onto Blu-ray in August

Before James Gunn was given the keys to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, he just trying to guard a little town from crawling creepers. Slither was Gunn’s directorial debut after his tenure at Troma and writing several scripts. He properly cast it with Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker and Elizabeth Banks along with their squishy co-stars. The film is now getting the Scream Factory treatment with dozens of bonus features on Slither: Collector’s Edition. Here is the press release from Scream Factory:

The sleepy town of Wheelsy could be any small town in America — somewhat quaint and gentle, peopled with friendly folks who mind their own business. But just beneath the surface charm, something unnamed and evil has arrived…and is growing. Intent on devouring all life on Earth, this dark and slimy entity is infecting anyone in its path. Now it’s up to the local sheriff, Bill Pardy (Nathan Fillion, Firefly, Castle), and his team to stop the spread of rampant devastation – and shocking mutilation – before it’s too late. This outrageously funny horror film also stars Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect) and Gregg Henry (Body Double, Jason Bourne).
