Storyline

In this blend of the B movie classic The Blob (1958), and some Romero's zombies film, a meteorite collides in a small town. Grant finds it, and is infected by a parasite worm, which installs in his brain and causes him a creepy transformation into a monster. Starla, his wife, and Bill, a policeman, will try to stop him and the plague of worms generated by the creature. Written by Alejandro Frias

A Great Horror Comedy
18 March 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I got to see this movie at it's LA premiere on a fluke -- I was interested in the star, Nathan Fillion, and got in when someone had extra tickets -- and I have to say, from the previews I wasn't that impressed. They just didn't appeal to me.

Despite all that, I absolutely loved the movie. It was funny and gross and scary and such a good time. It managed to be all those things at once and hit all the right notes.

In many ways it is like the movie Shawn of the Dead -- real people's reactions to classic horror movie scenarios; funny, self-referential mocking of the horror genre, etc. -- but somehow it is new and fresh and highly enjoyable.

The writing is superb and there are some genuinely surprising moments (both of the funny and scary varieties). All the actors do a fabulous job. I highly recommend seeing this movie.
