I saw this movie as a kid but need help naming it as I’ve been wanting to rewatch it (it scared the crap out of me and begun my love for horror).
I don’t remember much as I only saw it once as a kid, so it might have come out mid to late 90s/early 00s. But what I do remember is that some infection (viral but I believe maybe parasitic) caused the infected to lose their hair completely and their eyes would turn gray/icy blue. They would throw up these slug-like things and obviously chase after you and attempt to kill. A key scene I remember is that the main characters are in some cave toward the end and they flew away in a helicopter near this cave.
That’s all I got. Any help would be great!
Do you remember what was particularly sci-fi about it? Can you recall if this was a real low budget shot on video or was it al least shot on film?
Slugs could also be Night of the Creeps, ends with a basement not a cave though. The bald/blue eyes thing doesn’t really match though.
I was thinking Slither myself, but I don’t remember any helicopters in it.
Possibly Dreamcatcher, also maybe Phantoms.
There’s stuff like Puppet Masters or The Faculty but those I think less likely.
It’s definitely not Phantoms, at least not if the particulars in the description are at all accurate.
The mini-series based on Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers had people lose their hair and they got gray (and sometimes glowing green) eyes.
