Is pretty crap.
Very slow and boring in the beginning. The last half hour or so was quite good as you finally started feeling for the characters and the pace picked up but the start was just nothing. I'm not dramaturgist but that could have been done so much better.
The idea is actually quite nifty (and disturbing but strangely possible) but it just didn't work. Instead of "OMG, what's going on?" it was "I wonder if anything is going to happen" for the first almost 60 minutes. I think the main reason was that you just didn't care what was going on. The nudity and sex didn't do anything for me, either.
That old hospital (or whatever) was a great location, though. I'd love to spend a day or so there to take photos or even use it as a set.

Slither, on the other hand, looks like a fun gory horror flick with Captain Tightpants and slithering beasties that eat people. Looks like it could be a new Tremors. ;o)
