Things start off with a man about to be evicted from his home being found mostly eaten. Then we have an unfortunate gardening mishap, followed by a prime example of why you should always clean your lettuce before making a salad. Just saying, those anchovies weren’t anchovies, and we also get coitus interruptus slug style! Our main character is Mike Brady… heh that is funny. He is the local health inspector and catches on that something bad is happening. He ends up enlisting the sewer guy, Don Palmer, to help him deal with the critters by luring them into a central location so they can blow them up. You know typical monster movies stuff. People live and others die before the day is saved… or is it?
There is also some awkward dialogue, inappropriate music choices, and other such wackiness that only add to the fun that is Slugs. If you are looking for a scary creature feature, then this isn’t what you want. But if you are looking for a movie that gleefully tosses gore at you without taking itself too seriously then I highly recommend this flick.
