Trapped in an isolated gas station by a voracious Splinter parasite that transforms its still-living victims into deadly hosts, a young couple and an escaped convict must find a way to work together to survive this primal terror.
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
Dangled above the street at the beginning of the film, and on stage later at the Deer Cheer celebration, you can see a "Henenlotter's Saddle Lodge presents Deer Cheer" sign, a reference to cult horror Writer and Director Frank Henenlotter, famed Creator of Basket Case (1982) and Brain Damage (1988).

[Speaking to Bill, over the car radio]
Your momma called. She said the toilet's all backed up again, wants you to come over as soon as you're finished there... She said it's what you done in there on Sunday caused the backup.
[Starla looks at Bill empathetically, who hastily glances at her out of the corner of his eye, embarrassed]

Creepy horror movie giving a paranoid dimension when frightening creatures stalking and attacking
The movie begins when a meteorite collides in a rural community. Grant(Michael Rooker), married to Starla(Elizabeth Banks) encounters the meteorite and is infected by a parasite and originate him a horrible turning into a creepy monster with tentacles over his chest. People are dying gruesomely ad mysteriously, the body count starts to rise and anybody has a clue what the cause is. A foul-mouthed Mayor named Jack(Gregg Henry),and the local patrolman named Bill(Nathan Fillion) are investigating the weird events.
The picture packs mystery, shocks, grisly horror, but also tongue in check and black humor. The movie displays hair rising and horrifying images with lots of blood and graphical gore. This is an entertaining juvenile , quite remarkable for recreation of the carnivorous and ferocious worms developing a spooky and bloodthirsty hunger. Delivers a sympathetic homage about fifties movies and a B-film tribute. For that reason, the picture take parts from ¨Dawn of the dead(George A Romero)¨, Slugs(Juan Piquer),Society(Brian Yuzna), and The Blob(Chuck Russell), among others. Besides special appearance uncredited by Rob Zombie and Lloyd Kauffman, the famous producer and director of Troma productions, usual artificers of this type movies. The motion picture is professionally directed by James Gunn, he's usually writer(Dawn of the dead, Scooby Doo,1 and 2) and occasionally director for Troma productions . No for small kids by violent, realistic and gory attack scenes.
