James Gunn announces Slither DVD extra features. Writer/director/browncoat James Gunn posts the details of the upcoming Slither DVD's special features on his blog, including a commentary with Nathan. The rest of the blog is well worth reading as well.

- "Who is Bill Pardy?" - this was a surprise we made for Nathan at the wrap party, in which the cast and crew essentially roasted him. I asked Nathan if he was cool with it being on the DVD, and he was... so... watch us brutally make fun of him...

I'm so, so buying. By the way, Gunn's wife made a mockumentary which features James, Nathan and several other Slither people on the extras for the DVD. Details on his website.

The reviews for Slither really have been excellent in the UK, as James says. In fact, I haven't actually seen a bad UK review yet, which is pretty funny for a horror film...
I am there to.

This movie is must for the dvd rack.
Too bad it didn't do so well - I thought it was very entertaining!
Gossi, the mockumentary you speak of is Lollilove, and it looks to be hi-larious. And for those who do not know, Gunn's wife is Jenna Fischer, Pam on the American version of the Office.

And I am so buying this DVD. I cannot wait to hear the commentary.
I have definitely found the medium in which I will be viewing Slither. This DVD sounds legendary! :-)

(Don't know why I've been channeling Barney/HIMYM all day -- I just have. Hmm.)
Withdrawn. ;-)
I also thought this was a great movie and will be buying this. This is the type of film that will probably do well on DVD and a few years from now be a big cult hit. I hardly saw any ads for this movie and when I finally did see a couple it was the week it was opening.
Slither has been withdrawn from US cinemas today. Boo! Still, it taught me that Serenity didn't do as badly as people paint the picture.
Yikes, looks like it didn't even make its $15 million budget back domestically.

Have to see if we can keep the flag flying (or parasites slithering ?) over here.
Apparently the budget was closer to $25m, Saje.
Double yikes, with an extra side-order of yikes, liberally covered in yikes-onnaise. Unless it does truly phenomenal business on DVD it'll go down as a bit of a bomb. Pity.

Still at least it was well received critically so hopefully it won't hurt Nathan or James Gunn too badly.
James Gunn said on his blog he's got loads of studio offers to direct things, off the back of the reviews. The reviews have been exceptionally good - 86% positive on Rotten Tomatoes. It won't hurt Gunn's career, that's for sure - establishing yourself as a writer/director who knows his shit is a good thing. I bet Joss has had many offers after Serenity, by the way.

Huh... didn't know that. Explains why she was in the movie though.
This? Rocks!

I wrote to James Gunn and promised that if Nathan was on the commentary I'd buy two copies of the DVD. He wrote back stating that with Nathan's movie schedule it might be tough to get him. I'm ecstatic that they worked it out. Now I'll be buying two copies; one to keep and one to lend to others.

I thought "Slither" got pretty good reviews in the States, it just didn't get an audience.
The good news is that I've just talked to one of the UK people, and it's done quite well this morning in cinemas - looks promising.

Ironically, she wasn't actually supposed to be in it. According to #41 on the 50 Fun Facts About Slither list (scroll down to see it), she just happened to be visiting the set when the intended actor dropped out. Cheers to happy accidents, I say!
Well if Nathan is doing a commentary track I'm getting it, he seems to understand that the point of commentary tracks are that they are ment to be WORTH LISTENING TO, instead of so many others where its "Oh, I had forgotten about that"
