Storyline

Howie Morrison is a nice young man who is the butt of many jokes owing to his low IQ. His sister Sheila, a paleobiologist, is called in by the local mine manager when they discover a dinosaur of sorts in a newly opened mine shaft. What no one realizes is that the creature was killed by a caterpillar-like virus that has also infected the three miners who opened the new shaft. Soon everyone in town except Howie has turned into a zombie-like creature. He realizes that the creatures only come out at night and hide in the mine during daylight hours. He hatches a plan to save everyone. Written by garykmcd

She Put a Bug in Her Nose
9 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A post-Doogie Neil Patrick Harris plays a mentally challenged boy who lives with his scientist sister. She is a biologist who has been handed a pile of dinosaur bones. The inciting incident involves a trio of salt miners discovering an opening in a wall. They go in to investigate and are swarmed by masses of ugly red worms. These things find their ways into body orifices, changing the personalities of the victims. They go from whatever their normal beings are to a release of the id. They become predatory, sexually aggressive, and violent. As they approach one who has not been invaded, a worm will come out of them and shoot into the flesh of the unsuspecting party. Soon the whole town is engaging in all manner of debauchery, tipping over cars, setting fires, leaving destruction in it's wake. Harris's character is left to sort things out. Apparently his simple mind rejects the invasions of the worms. He is caught between lover for his sister and an inability to act. Nevertheless, it is up to him. The sister has made it clear that if something isn't done, these things could spread everywhere. There are so many unanswered questions here and the plot is so silly. Still, it engages our interest, our wanting to know what the young man will do to obstruct the spread of these awful creatures.
