Revenge is sometimes difficult to wriggle out of.
14 October 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A slimy, squirmy, wriggly wormfest, this particular tale from R. L. Stine is a lot of fun, and also a little bit gross. In other words . . . . . perfect for the intended audience.

Noah Shebib plays Todd, a young man obsessed with worms. He's doing a project on them, but that just seems to be an excuse to play around with them some more and think up a number of tests to put them through. With his best friend, Danny (Andre Ottley-Lorant), he plans some worm-tastic stuff, including a prank played on his sister, Regina (Kristin Fairlie). But when the worms start to turn, or so it seems, Todd suspects that Regina is getting her revenge. But is she? Or have the worms just had enough?

Directed by Steve DiMarco, this episode easily entertained me from start to finish. Unsurprisingly, there are lots and lots of worms on screen and young Shebib deserves praise for his performance, considering how many close encounters he has with his wriggly co-stars.

Everyone else is just fine, but this episode belongs to Shebib and the worms. It also benefits from a punchline as twisted as it is amusing.

This seems to have a pretty low score here on IMDb but I would rate it as one of the better episodes. In fact, it's one of my favourites. If you don't like it, well . . . . . . . just go eat worms.
