*UPDATED* Finally! A Date for Slither


Something's wrong with me...The best horror movie that no one saw, James Gunn’s Slither, has finally been given an official street date from Universal according to Davis DVD.

Slither will drop on October 24th, easily the most logical date for the film, in fullscreen, widescreen, and HD-DVD versions. Universal’s still got some faith in the flick, as well they should because it ought to do really well on DVD since those that did see it raved about it, but it didn’t stick around for everyone else to track it down. Maybe next time you’ll listen to us!

A while back director James Gunn ran through the possible specs for the DVD on his MySpace page, but I’ll be damned if I can find ‘em now so I’m not sure if it matches the specs that have been announced. Dig:

Commentary with director James Gunn and actor Nathan Fillion
Collection of deleted scenes
“Visual Effects: Step By Step”
“The Sick Minds and Slimy Days of Slither
“Bringing Slither‘s Creatures to Life”
Slithery Set Tour with Nathan Fillion”
“Who Is Bill Pardy?”
“Gorehound Grill: Brewin’ The Blood”
“The King of Cult: Lloyd Kaufman’s Video Diary” featurettes
Blooper reel

Not too damn shabby. It’s good to see Uni putting some love behind this one! Stay tuned for a look at the artwork any day now!
