When a middle-aged gunslinger is hired to kill a brothel owner practicing barbaric acts on his prostitutes, he may not have time for his usual, stylish methods of assassination. And he may not be killing for the reason he thinks.

Format:Blu-ray
Print is a hitman servicing the waning days of the wild, wild West. He accepts a job to kill Heinrich Kley, a German brothel owner who administers his own unique form of socialized medicine to the `soiled doves' of his who become pregnant. However, when Print is also asked to take on a protégé - a young gunman whose head may not be entirely on straight - things are destined to go from bad to worse real quick in the Wild Dogs Production of THE SCARLET WORM.

WORM is, definitely, not for everyone. It's a B-movie western clearly with European influences not seen in stateside release in, quite probably, four decades. There are no current box office draws in the cast, and much of its ramshackle Western sets resemble contemporary theme park settings and/or budget tourist trap destinations located anywhere between Benson and Bisbee. At times, the film seems little more than a bloated community theatre production of a spaghetti western ... but don't be fooled, cinema fans, because that's quite probably the way the makers had intended it all along. Shot on a budget of reportedly $25,000, WORM is as much as exercise in film appreciation as it is the art of modern film-making.

In short, WORM came about thanks to the online friendship of a group of like-minded film junkies. They met in various forums, exchanged information about film likes and dislikes, and they decided that their fandom and their friendship deserved something even greater. So they got together and pooled their resources and efforts into making the kind of film they loved and they wanted to see returned to audiences. The end result is not only a film like THE SCARLET WORM but also a handful of similar second rate features with schlock titles like THE MINSTREL KILLER and APOCRYPHA.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Scarlet Worm September 19, 2012
By Alanna
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this movie not just because I like Independent films but also because many of the actors in it are friends of mine. I may be biased but I don't care. Indie films are terribly underrated by the mainstream film world. Yes they are made on shoestring budgets. Yes they can seem somewhat unprofessional and have amaturish acting. The Scarlet Worm has neither. I would describe it as a surreal Western with an underlying message.
Indies tend to play much more artistically than mainstream films therefore the experience is much more personally felt.
If you appreciate Indies, you will love this movie.
If you don't see or have never seen an Indie film, start with Scarlet Worm and go from there. Don't deprive yourself of the artistic pleasure of this genre of films.

Format:Blu-ray
If we were to go by Howard Hawks' rule of a good movie having three great scenes and no bad ones, The Scarlet Worm wouldn't qualify as a good movie. For despite having well over a triplet of great scenes it does flounder with two abysmal expository segments ( each is a poorly written and acted scene involving two nude prostitutes sitting down and explaining the plot).

But despite this couple of embarassing sequences The Scarlet Worm is a damn good movie and a solid effort from Nowheresville filmmakers.

If nothing else, you should watch for a taut dinner scene in which hero and villain face off with their firearms pointed at each others' privates under a table. With the surpringly fantastic acting and crisp dialogue it felt like something we could probably be watching later this year when Quentin Tarantino's Django Western comes out. Aside from its hiccups the real star is the script which ranges from thoughtful to audacious and it doesn't completely lack humor either.

That said, be warned. I know a lot of people that will be immediately turned off by the low budget. And low budget this is. No amount of burlap will hide that fact but if you have an open mind and you're looking for something new from a genre that has long since ridden out into the sunset, check this out. It's well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, especially for the budget. April 27, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
It's no secret that this film did not have an impressive budget. Where as most low budget films devote the majority of their effort into making their special effects as top rate as possible, The Scarlet Worm more than makes up for the budget with an absolutely incredible script. The dialog alone makes the movie, from Print's poetic philosophies to Kley's religious justification. The characters are dynamic and anything but typical.

So rarely do B-movies boast this caliber of story quality. A must watch.
