Spawn of the Slithis

Another civil society/civic polity horror movie from the 70's - along with the likes of Wolfen, The Dark, and Piranha, horror films concerning themselves with how supernatural threats would be dealt with within the confines of functioning society - with a certain relaxed 70's hang-out comic aplomb (check out those marital bedroom scenes with the visual and conversational flatness of a Mike Leigh movie), a tone eventually morphing into Jaws-ripoff adventure, all of this unified, though, by generally bad and peripheral filmmaking, and the sense intentionality is not the case here.
