About me:.. .. .. .. This is the OFFICIAL MYSPACE PAGE of James Gunn, the writer/director of SLiTHER, as well as the writer of the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, THE SPECIALS, TROMEO & JULIET, THE TOY COLLECTOR novel, and a bunch of other shit. Watch out this fall for my new webseries on Spike.com, JAMES GUNN'S PG PORN, my new show on XBox Live, HUMANZEE!, and my new VH1 reality show, SCREAM QUEENS!
Check out the trailer for HUMANZEE!:
Because I get so many messages on MySpace, I can unfortunately no longer respond to them all. If you have a question, you'll be better off joining the James Gunn Appreciation Society HERE and going to the James Gunn Q&A in the Forums. There, I answer everything. Thanks!
Also, I cannot legally read any scripts, story ideas, synopses, or treatments -- please do not send them to me!
SLiTHER is currently showing on Cinemax and HBO. Check it out when you can!
Also thanks to ROLLING STONE magazine for putting SLITHER in the TOP 25 DVDs of 2006!
And RUE MORGUE magazine for naming SLITHER the BEST FEATURE FILM of 2006!
And, while we're at it, ROTTEN TOMATOES, for calculating that SLITHER was the 8th most well-reviewed wide-release feature film of 2006!
And, hell, fuck it, let's also thank AOL-MOVIEFONE, THE ONION, YAHOO MOVIES, CHUD, BLOODY-DISGUSTING, and all the others who put us in their BEST-OF-2006 LISTS!
The SLiTHER DVD is available everywhere RIGHT FUCKING NOW!
.. SLiTHER DVD RELEASE
The DVD is jam-packed with special features, including audio commentary by James Gunn and Nathan Fillion, as well as deleted and extended scenes, a blooper reel, a making-of documentary, a documentary on the visual effects, Lloyd Kaufman's set diary, James Gunn's special roasting of Nathan Fillion, and MORE!
TROMEO & JULIET 2-DISC DVD 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
