One of the most original and entertaining of the revenge-of-nature films that characterised mid-1970s American horror, Squirm begins with a pylon being downed by a thunderstorm, sending millions of volts into the wet, conductive mud, which naturally gives hundreds of thousands of its wriggly inhabitants an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

And since the accident has also inconveniently cut off the electricity to Fly Creek, Georgia, its population could hardly be more vulnerable when the sun goes down. Houses can be barricaded against most intruders, but what happens when they're small enough to get into the water supply?

Writer-director Jeff Lieberman (who also made the cult classics Blue Sunshine and Just Before Dawn) achieves a near-perfect blend of knowing wit and good old-fashioned scares, with make-up genius Rick Baker (An American Werewolf in London) on hand for some of the memorably disgusting special effects.

Awards and Reviews:

“Slyly entertaining stuff.” - TimeOut

“man versus nature and cult classic aficionados are in for a treat.” Arrow in the Head

“If you were to take Hitchcock’s The Birds, set it in rural Georgia, use a shoestring budget, cast, instead of Tippi Hedren, red-haired Patricia Pearcy on a Tennesse Williams overdose, and replace the menacing birds with vicious, flesh eating worms, then you’d get something like Jeff Lieberman’s Squirm.” - Slatter Shack
