Squirm (1976) Review:

Squirm is a fun movie, no doubt about that. The big slimy worms make a really cool visual, playing on our fear of slimy biting things. The movie way of generating worm-based horror is fun: it alternates close-ups of real worm with fangs between sequences with the pool of plastic worms, as well as scenes with real worms dripping from various places. This works pretty well in most cases but does look a bit cheap.

As in so many creature movies, the scenario is disastrous, not to say inexistent. The main characters are desperately monodimensional and, right from the beginning, you can guess the entire story. The result is a stupid film where the viewer is just craving for the worm scenes (which luckily are quite numerous).

Overall Squirm is an entertaining telefilm, but nothing more that something fun to watch with your girlfriend…just to see her face when the worms get out of the showers.
