Trivia / Slither

  • Acclaimed Flop: Received generally positive reviews upon release, complete with 86% "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes, but failed to make back its 15 million dollar budget, only earning 12.8 million.
  • Word of God: It's not made 100% clear in the film, but according to director James Gunn on the DVD commentary, the real Grant died when he was attacked by the alien. Everything after that was the alien, although it had absorbed Grant's memories and his love for Starla. The scene with him crying early on was to indicate the alien experiencing human emotions for the first time.
