fter movies about killer ants, rabbits, gnomes, weasels, antelopes, bees, cheetahs, and badgers, slugs seemed the next logical step in killer animal movies. As you can imagine, it's not very good, but this one isn't even entertaining to watch. I wish I had been at an executive meeting for this one. "Hey, let's make a movie about killer slugs, but this time, we gotta try and make it believable."
Coming from the director of "Pieces", one of my all-time favorite piece-of-shit movies, I expected much more. The plot involves toxic waste causing regular slugs to kill. Uh-huh. Toxic waste is always the cause for nature attacks in Hollywood, isn't it? Anyway, none of you care about the plot, you wanna know how everybody dies, don't you? Well, there's one great scene where a couple are having sex(warning: male wang nudity ahead), and the entire ground is covered with slugs. They both get eaten alive by the slugs. Most of the other deaths are offscreen, however, making this painful to endure(not that I'm a sadist or anything, I just like watching people die).
For some reason, the town can't seem to outrun these slugs, and.......holy shit! I forgot about the dinner scene! This guy's feeling pretty sick, so his wife assumes it's the food and calls the police. Moments later, he explodes into a sea of black and grey slugs. Okay, back to what I was saying. The acting is pitiful, and a lot of the voices were dubbed, for some reason. This says it was filmed in New York. The ending tries to make this film into a thriller, with psuedo-tense music playing as they set the sewers on fire. As I said before, it's not very good, and those of you looking for another "Pieces" will be majorly disappointed.
