HUGE slugs from outer space and zombies are among the gruesome creatures starring in the new release at the Odeon, Weston.Slither is the latest creation from film maker James Gunn, creator of the gruesome Dawn of the Dead.

But things begin to steer in a sinisterly different direction.One night Grant goes on a big night out and meets Brenda. On a moonlit stroll they discover something horrible in the woods, something which invades Grant's body.Grant becomes less and less human and gradually transforms into a bloodthirsty animal intent on destroying the uninfected.
