"Slug Fancy Magazine chose this as the greatest movie of all time."
3 stars

Once again, we journey into the realm of 'nature running amok'. (Does the word 'amok' ever get used outside of when nature is running in it?) You know the drill: The oh-so-delicate balance of nature is somehow upset, and the result is human carnage. Usually it's some wild-eyed doctor who causes this disruption while other times it's just plain old human ignorance. But who cares as long as obnoxious naked people get slaughtered and devoured, right?

If ever there were a movie that was summed up by its title, then Slugs is it. You probably have never even seen this movie, and I bet you could still review it! As a matter of fact, here's my next door neighbor:

"Hi Scott. What's up? What movie? SLUGS? That's a real movie? Why is your keyboard all sticky? Just kidding. Haha. OK. Well, Slugs is about these slugs that get zapped by electricity and...oh no wait!...there's this army experiment to breed super weapon slugs and they escape! Yeah, this giant flock of slugs escapes and...there's this gigantic mass baptism going on downstream! And..."

OK, enough from him. I'll put it to you this way: If you were in your local video store and you noticed a DVD case that depicted a dead woman with a bloody SLUG crawling from her mouth, what would you do?

A. Immediately avert your eyes, intent on renting Patch Adams for the fifth time.

B. Pick up the box and glance at the bloody slimy thing with a bemused look on your face.

C. Grab the case and scream to your friend (who is all the way across the room in the porn section): "This Just In! Killer Slugs Eat Girl!"

If you answered A, congratulations. You're sane, despite the fact that you like Patch Adams.

If you answered B or C, rent this movie. Slugs is a B-movie hoot. Not one acting performance is better than atrocious. The screenplay is seemingly crafted to make you roll your eyes skyward for 90 minutes. The gore is pretty slick, especially when the slugs get inside this one guy's brain or when those nude people fall on the slugs. Yowch!

You've probably already seen Frogs, Bats, Anaconda, Crocodile, Ants, Bees, Alligator, Spiders and Mosquito, so how much stupider will you feel for checking out Slugs? Not much, and that's why movies like this exist. To make us all feel smarter for having laughed at them.

(This is the only film in history to be rated NSSA: No Salt Shakers Admitted.)

6/08/01 *~Danielle*Ophelia~* (formerly KyLe*BrOfLoVsKi) An unintentionally hilarious laugh-riot. The gore was gratuitous, yet inspired. 3 stars
4/19/01 Colonoscopia I saw this like a decade ago, and liked it (I was young). Now it's just amusing garbage 2 stars
