Editorial Reviews

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out...and to their ravenous intent, they leave no doubt! A truly frightening account of an infestation of biting worms, Squirm is guaranteed to make you dojust that (Los Angeles Times)! When a powerful storm knocks Fly Creek, Georgia's power lines down onto wet soil, the resulting surge of electricity drives large, bloodthirsty worms to the surfaceand then out of their soil-tilling minds! Soon, the townspeople discover that their sleepy fishing village is overrun with worms that burrow right into their skin! Inundated by hundreds of thousands of carnivorous creatures, the terrorized locals race to find the cause of the rampagebefore becoming tilled under themselves!

Customer Reviews

The worms and special effects are still good.
Great White
Squirm is about a town who gets hit by a storm, lighting strikes, and it causes the worms to become bloody thirsty.
A. Pierre
If you were to just read the script and not watch the actual movie, you would definatly think it was a comedy.

As a 22 year old fresh out of college, I jumped at the chance to go to Savvanah Georgia for the winter and work as production assistant on this film. I ended up being the worm wrangler for the millions of "blood worms" the production shipped in from New York for the live worm effects. We also had a couple of tons of fake plastic worms shipped in from Hong Kong (I still have some. E-Bay anyone?).
What a hoot to work on the film. All of the "authentic" southern actors were actually from Brooklyn (except the sheriff, who was the real sheriff of the town the movie was shot in). Notable actors were the guy who did the Hebrew National commercial (We answer to a higher authority) and Don Scardino who survived this blot on his career to become a well known Broadway actor and producer. The writer was a jewish kid from the Bronx, (went on to do the film "Orange Sunshine" about Yuppies who ate bad acid (and years later ate their kids and family members!)so so much for that "authentic" southern dialouge.
Best story: I lived in the house used in the production. It was way out in the georgia woods and one day two locals came by to see what was going on. Dressed in their best overalls and spitting tobacco, they had a whisky still a few hundred yards away and were concerned about all the people in the neighborhood giving away their location.

I've always liked this movie. Not because I'm particularly interested in the fascinating life of our little friends -the insects- or because I'm a curious fisherman; no, simply because SQUIRM is an above average B movie with great horror scenes and well written characters.
A scene will, if it's necessary, show you a bit of director Jeff Lieberman's know-how. Near the beginning of the movie, the main character being quietly speaking to his girl-friend, a terribly long worm (yeech !) quickly crawls down the wall behind him. Without his noticing. You spend the rest of the scene wondering whether the worm will attack the hero. Stressing.
The copy presented in this MGM DVD is perfect and deserves to stay in your library if you're interested in cult movies.

'SQUIRM' is a fun little Drive-In-style horror flick that plays it straight, while having a load of fun along the way. The wonderful commentary by the director mentions the fact that 'MST3K' didn't need to parody the film on their show, when the film was a 'goof' from the start. I couldn't agree more. This film does what movies like 'Scream' did several years later, quite successfully: It sends up the horror genre, without, dumbing down to its audience or having too many "wink-wink" moments. The film uses close-ups of real "monster" worms and has a memorable moment with early Rick Baker effects: "Worm Face." All in all a very fun movie written and directed by Jeff Lieberman, who this fan hopes will make more movies very soon!

I really enjoyed watching this movie when I first saw it in the 1980's when I was around 17 years old,I am glad to finally own the video.I guess that the scariest concept of the movie(that is never discussed anywhere)is that at the beginning it states that it is based on a true story.
I guess after checking a map of Georgia I found that Fly Creek does not exist in the state.I am wondering if the placement of the movie might of been changed to Fly Creek to avoid any curious Fans of the movie.
I have always been curious if anyone knew anything about the supposed true story that this movie is based on....
I rate this movie at the highest rating not only because the makeup effects were done by the Famous Makeup Artist Rick Baker but also because of the Haunting musical score(A little boy singing a song).
The Movie Squirm is a good movie to rent but a better movie to own and a great movie to watch when it gets dark outside and every bump or noise you hear gives you the Willies.

I watched Squirm online recently & enjoyed it so much I bought a copy on Amazon. I remember the ad for it at the drive-in as a child. My mom was going to take us, but for one reason or another it didn't pan out. I was fortunate that my mother was also a horror fan & often took us to the drive-ins to see these movies.

I have to say part of Squirm's appeal for me is that it's set in the south. Typically you don't see many horror films set in that part of the country. I also liked listening to the accents. I don't usually go in for these nature run amok-type films, but I have to say I've seen the film twice already & thoroughly enjoyed it. Likely I will watch it again before long. If you're into B horror movies of the '70s & haven't yet seen this film, you may want to give it a watch.

Originally the movie was rated R. Apparently it was consequently re-rated to a PG. Don't ask me how trimming seconds of the gore managed to get Squirm a PG. The gore overall really isn't all that much. I could see editing out the nudity. But there is only a very brief scene containing topless nudity & the shot is angled at a side view. So the nudity is practically non-existent really. I think even back in 1976 that could have even still retained the film a PG. I do find there is more explicit gore in R rated films than a PG, but again, not all that much gore here, though there is some.

As for the DVD, it's sharp & vibrant. Sound is great. Includes original tv spot, theatrical trailer & commentary by the film's creator. My only qualm is though the back cover states WIDESCREEN format, the movie is presented in FULL SCREEN with no options whatsoever in the navigation menu for Letterbox/Widescreen. This is my only gripe.
