"Death gets slimy"

Films: Slugs (1988)

Alias: None

Type: Mutant

Location: Forest/Lake/Civilized area/Underground

Height/Weight: That of average slugs.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: A lot of people would probably scoff at the idea that creatures moving only slightly faster than their snail counterparts would pose anything resembling a threat. Try saying that to the hundreds of them barging down your house and coming after your flesh.

History: An overabundance of pollution has mutated hordes of slugs in the worst way possible. Now, they have jaws and teeth all the better to gnaw at people with.

Notable Kills: One accidental slug salad later, a guy literally has them tearing out of him.

Final Fate: Eventually, the slugs' hideout in the sewers is discovered, and the place is blown to cinders. However, at least one slug remains...

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Admittingly, most of the deaths could have been avoided if the victims exercised a bit more carefulness. But make no mistake, those who do find themselves being overpowered by these toothy mollusks will find that death won't be clean at all...

Trivia: -The novel this film was based on actually got a sequel, named "Breeding Grounds", in 1985. A film for that was canned.

-Slugs are actually quite opportunistic with their diets. Most of it is plant matter, but many will also settle for rotted flesh.

As odd as it sounds. Take our word for it.

I'm guessing you were drunk because there is no way you allowed them all to crawl all over you in that capacity.
Guys, NOW is not the time! You're just asking to be eaten!

Wait, this was a novel?

Enjoy your nightmares.

As if you weren't uncomfortable already.
