THE PLOT:

A health worker suspect a string of bizarre deaths are connected to a strange new kind of slug that has been popping out. These slugs are larger then normal for the area and black. It turns out the slugs are flesh-eating mutations and tney outnumber us 100 to one.

Now it's a race against time to squash the super slugs before they make a meal out of every man woman and child on the island.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, I admit I'm a tad disappointed that they went cheap and used real slugs for the monsters in this movie, but on the upside of it. They used a kind of slug I never heard of before. The European Garden Slug or the Black Slug is huge and is cool. The close up effect of the mutant slug when he bites the guy is cool too. The story is your A typical mutant monster story, they mutate and go on a killing spree. But as the story and effects go, this is as good as the mutant cockroaches in the NEST. Yes, it's that level of cool. There are some character issues that are also A typical, man comes with radical idea of mutant slugs and get laughed at by superiors until the body count starts to grow and a major league important man dies of mutant slug enzymes consumed in a salad that has a mutant slug in it when the lettuce was cut, which cut up the slug as well. EW! A cool monster movie worth watching over and over again, 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree for the most part and I think the whole not believing something that is fairly obvious is getting old fast. But I guess it's part of the format. 8 STARS.
