James Gunn's Slither Collector's Edition Blu-ray coming this July

James Gunn is now known the world over as the mastermind behind the best Marvel movie GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. But we all remember him from his genre efforts, including writing TROMEO & JULIET, DAWN OF THE DEAD (2004), and best of all, SLITHER.

SLITHER is a film that everyone loves. Seriously, I have yet to meet the person that views SLITHER and says, "Meh" afterward, let alone, "That sucked!". SLITHER is kind of that rarity in the horror-comedy genre; a flick that manages to be both scary and, most of all, funny as hell.

Well, the film is finally getting a proper Blu-ray release via Scream Factory this July. Writer-Director James Gunn announced it on his Facebook a few hours ago.

James Gunn on Facebook:

I'd like to officially announce that after MANY YEARS of waiting, and me endlessly bitching to the rights holders, FINALLY my directorial debut Slither will be available on Blu-Ray. The wonderful folks from Scream Factory will be distributing a brand new edition on July 25 of this year. It will have lots of cool extras including a NEW COMMENTARY FROM ME AND THE CAST. It's like "When Harry Met Sally" only it's "When Gunn Met Rooker (and Fillion and Banks and Henry)." These people all changed my life. And Slither is how they did it. 

You can buy it here www.shoutfactory.com/film/film-horror/slither-collector-s-edition or soon on Amazon, Best Buy, and other online retailers.

Oh and check out the cool new artwork. I love it

SLITHER Collector's Edition Rundown via Scream Factory:

"A wickedly fun horror flick!" – David Germain, Associated Press

Prepare yourself for this terrifying, twisted and chilling film that critics are calling "the most entertaining horror movie in years" (Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch).

From the co-writer and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, comes the deliciously demented story of an unnamed evil wreaking havoc on a small town. 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, Serenity), 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).

Extras in progress and will be announced at a later date.
