Hurry, everyone! Grab a Pilsner, crank up the Rammstein, and put another sausage on the barbie! Sorry, that joke was the wurst. As was that one. But yes, let’s get German! Because I have quite possibly my favorite thing I’ve found in a while for you in this post. And that is: The German version of the trailer for the 1988 killer slug movie…..Slugs! I did a post about the regular American version of the trailer like a sucker last year, but this one is far superior. Just watch and listen, and try not giggle and have a fit when the voiceover guy says “Sluuuuugs!” (echo, echo, echo)
Many things hold a special place in my heart. My parents. My memories of my dog, Snickers. And the movie Slugs. Yes……Slugs. A movie about killer man-eating slugs. Trust me, in 1988 it was a thing. And what better way to capture the wonderment of this national treasure than to watch the original theatrical trailer for the movie. Now, let the voiceover consume everything inside you while you watch and listen…….
They Ooze. They Slime. The Kill. I love that tagline. But anyway, the other reason I’m bringing up Slugs is that the Arrow Video release of the Blu-ray is about to go out of print! So what does that mean? Go buy a copy NOW, ya dummy. Don’t let this go the route of Creepshow 2 (where you’re paying triple the price to get a copy). You’ll thank me later. And maybe the next time you do see a slug, you’ll be a little kinder to it as well.
