Storyline

Herman Umgar, a German hermit, has an ability to communicate with worms. One day the mayor of the town runs him off his property, so in revenge he plants worms in everybody's food. However, these worms are a special breed of mutant worms from the Red Tide, and when the people eat them they are transformed into giant worms themselves. These worm-people also become Herman's slaves. What will the remaining do? Written by Parca Mortem <icy_shadow@rocketmail.com>

Sick low grade would be comedy
29 March 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

1977 comedy (some facts list 1975) has Herb Robins assaulting the town using worms in a way that I really can't tell you for it would be giving away the surprise of the film. There is actual worm eating, and the ending is classic. Even got a chezzy title song. Played at the Seattle Film Festival in the mid-80's, this film got little attention and should be some sort of cult classic. Not recommended to people who don't want to see worm eating.
