At the beginning of the film, we learn from one of the characters that earthworms can be called to the surface with electricity, but somehow it turns them into vicious flesh-eaters. Sure enough, a storm that night causes some power lines to break and touch the ground, drawing millions of man-eating worms out of the earth, and into town where they quickly start munching on the locals.

The inspiration for the film came from a childhood experiment between director Jeff Lieberman and his brother. One evening the two hooked up a train transformer to wet soil and used the electricity to drive hundreds of worms out of the ground. Young Lieberman noticed that the worms tried to get away from the glare of the flashlight that the boys were using to see by because worms are light-sensitive. It became the scientific basis behind this film and the story of the experiment is re-told by the character of Roger Grimes. See more »

In the small town of Georgia, there was a violent storm in the night and when the power lines falls in the ground. There's millions of earth worms are coming out of the ground. In the next day, Mick (Don Scardino) is a young man from New York City. Who's meeting his lovely girlfriend Geri (Patricia Pearcy), her mother (The late Jean Sullivan) and her sister (Fran Higgins). Which Mick is staying for a couple of days, but when he goes sight-seeing with his girlfriend. They found skeleton and when they told their story to the local sheriff (Peter MacLean). Who's doesn't believe a word of their story. When Mick gets bitten from a worm, he believes that it might has something to do the skeleton they found. But once it's turns night, there's millions of earth worms are coming out of the night and attack the civilians of this small town. Which now Mick and his girlfriend's family are trying to stay alive until the next morning comes.
Written and Directed by Jeff Lieberman (Blue Sunshine, Just Before Dawn, Remote Control) made an decent entertainment horror movie that is intentionally silly at times but it also has some good shock sequences. Lieberman actually takes his time to get the know the characters well enough before they killed or actually by these disgusting worms in the movie. Sure, there's problems in his script. But the cast is good (especially Scardino) and it has good gross make-up effects by Six Time Oscar-Winner:Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London, Hellboy, Planet of the Apes "2001"). Some people find this movie so awful that is was actually shown in "Mystery Science Theater 3000". Sure, the movie is actually much more sillier today but i think it's genuinely well made for its time and seeing the character of Roger (D.A. Grimes), who was attacked by worms twice is a bit too much. But it does some good shock values and i did have the occasional jump scare in my chair. Horror fans will enjoy more than the others. It's worth a look. (*** ½/*****).
