SLITHER

A film with serious horror that doesn’t take itself seriously.  Some icky, funny stuff.  Favorite line: “I think there’s something wrong with me.”   (Ya think?)

Remember The Gauntlet?  The old Eastwood flick from the 70s?  This reminds me of it—a lot.  But instead of moving a prisoner from Vegas to Phoenix (or was it the other way round?), this one transits Manhattan’s Chinatown (a super location).  Not a great flick, but Mos Def is terrific.  My respect for this guy’s acting continues to grow.  Contrast his Eddie Bunker here with his Vivien Thomas in Something the Lord Made.  He absorbs into a part.

I love this sort of film – where separate stories intersect at just the wrong/right moment.  (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels is the example par excellence). This one doesn’t rise to that level, but I’ll give it a B for effort.
