Beware the Horror of Slithis!

Slithis is a wretched low-budget film I saw with my good friend Scott in 1978 at the Northgate Cinema near John R and 8 Mile in Detroit Michigan. We were about 16 and we'd go see about anything there that promised some special effects and gore. I really don't remember much about this one, there's a good review and recap here. The movie was also apparently marketed under the name Spawn of the Slithis.

At the theater they were giving out these little order forms for your "Slithis Survival Kit." While we never sent away for them, for some reason I hung on to the order from all these years. So I scanned it and present it here for you.



And here's the poster...


And the trailer...


And the whole damn movie...
