Movie Info

The success of Willard, in which a young man trained his pet rats to kill at his command, inspired a rash of horror films featuring animals run amok, including snakes (Stanley), frogs (Frogs) and even rabbits (Night Of The Lepus). Squirm was one of the more interesting films spun off this subgenre, in which a town is terrorized by bloodthirsty worms who've been angered by a downed power line during a rainstorm. Better than it sounds, and packs a few good scares (especially if worms make you

alot of wormy fun

February 18, 2008

Jeff Lieberman's debut feature is a sly tongue-in-cheek horror shocker that has its squirmy moments in the mud.

Audience Reviews for Squirm

I hadn't realised Mystery Science Theater 3000 covered this film until now but I can totally see why they did. The wormy scenes are good but are far and few between. The film is mostly the two main characters running to town and back without actually achieving anything. The ideas of worms biting and wriggling their way into your body and drowning in a sea of worms are two horrifying ideas as they are, i'm not sure the fact that the worms screamed really added anything.

Squirm is Jeff Lieberman's cheesy tongue in cheek horror flick that displays a terrific twist on the nature gone wild genre of horror. Lieberman is a great director and he's able to deliver a fun and entertaining film that will surely please fans of the genre. Although cheesy, the film delivers good tension and is pretty creative in showcasing some terrific special effects. For its low-budget and the time period, Squirm is a stunning if imperfect film that still manages to be great fun despite the flaws. I thoroughly enjoyed Lieberman's third feature, the obscured Slasher Just Before Dawn, and he truly perfected his craft in the horror genre with that film. However Squirm is a fine debut and showcases the director's talent perfectly. This is the type of film that definitely should not be seen as serious. The film does have a special place in the sub genre of nature gone wild films, and is very entertaining from start to finish. If you love creature films, then this film is for you, and it is a must see for genre fans that like low budget tongue in cheek terror. This one film that is a terrific addition to the genre, and it most certainly is a good, underrated film that has enough entertainment value to keep you involved from the first frame onwards. Jeff Lieberman is a terrific director who has made some good little chillers and Squirm has that aspect which make his pictures a must see for horror fans everywhere. Sure Squirm is silly, but in the end that is what makes this flick so entertaining in the first place.
