PRODUCERS: Stephen Traxler, Paul Fabian
DIRECTOR/SCREENWRITER: Stephen Traxler
ALSO RELEASED AS: Spawn of the Slithis
A '50s-style scaly monster, a product of nuclear pollution, attacks people in Venice, California. A good independent project with a fun publicity campaign. Free Slithis survival kits were given out at theaters and you could sign up for the Slithis fan club and receive a free photo.
Michael Weldon (The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, 1983)
The old monster flick SLITHIS which until yesterday was only available on much deleted old VHS has finally been granted a release on one of those shiny wee discs! It's now out from Code Red but so far only available from Amazon US, not from Amazon UK. Hopefully it will be soon so I can save the 10 bucks I'd have to pay extra for ordering from Amazon US. It's almost robbery by daylight!
