The movie is set in a small town in the United States. Grant, the rich but older husband of a younger woman, gets upset when his wife, Starla, rebuffs his sexual advances one evening. Angry, Grant goes out to a bar, where he meets another younger woman. Out in the woods, the couple encounters a gross-looking, cracked egg that hitched a ride on a meteor and fell to earth. A stinger from the egg inserts itself into Grant and invades his brain, but Grant seems to be okay on the outside.
Later, Grant starts changing into a half-human slug creature that kills pets and livestock. Before he really changes, however, he impregnates and kidnaps the woman he met in the bar. The new chief of police, Bill, who has a thing for Grant's wife, Starla, takes a posse to chase after the creature, who keeps escaping. They find the kidnapped woman, but she has grown into a humongous mass of flesh. The woman explodes and unleashes hundreds of small red maggots that try to infect and eat every living thing around. Can the chief stop these monsters and their hive mind before they kill him and every other living thing in the town and on earth?
Though tongue-in-cheek, SLITHER has a classic science fiction monster plot, but, as noted, SLITHER is extremely gross, gory and violent. It also contains strong sexual content, brief nudity and an excessive amount of strong foul language. Finally, the movie has a very strong humanist worldview, with some pro-evolution content, that mocks Christianity, including Christian morality. The movie resembles its monsters. Moral moviegoers will find both the movie and its monsters are unfit for human consumption.
The fact that this sickening, obscene movie has a humanist, pro-evolution worldview clearly demonstrates the logical, moral, philosophical, and scientific bankruptcy of atheism and the false theory of evolution. Regrettably, there are a lot of really sick, misguided atheists and pagans in the world who enjoy such obscene, gross material. Many of these Non-Christians will see nothing wrong with the movie's excessive violence and vulgarity, but they will be sadly mistaken.
