A bright light slams into the ground near some campers. They go to investigate, and like most campers, end up dead.
The next morning, a couple wakes up to find a nightmare in their basement. The rest of the family (uncle, aunt, two sons) wake up and think that the parents have just gone to town. Meanwhile, the monstrosity in the basement continues to grow, and little spawns start running through the house (and out into town). Only a determined kid knows what to do to stop the...DEADLY SPAWN.

Fuck Randy from Scream. Little Charlie is my man when it comes time to throw down. That fool had it down as soon as he went down to the basement.
That's what watching horror movies gets you...the knowledge to keep your ass alive once a huge colony of flesh eating worms invades your town. You could tell by the look on that little dude's face he knew what was up.
Anyway, the movie kicks ass. There's some needless scenes here and there, but not enough to bring down the score. The dialogue is actually pretty damn good (as you can tell by the "Best Lines" down there); people talk and stumble over each other naturally, characters go into shock, stuff like that. Not to say the acting would win awards for crying out loud, but it was convincing enough to keep my ADD in check.
It's gory as all hell, too; a woman gets her face ripped off, heads are torn off and eaten, eyes are munched on. Some of the deaths even managed to surprise me, as I wasn't expecting certain people to die...always a good thing, trust me.
So, I'm thinking that the makers of the (in my opinion) best-2-player-game-ever-made, Contra for the original Nintendo, watched this movie, and it scared them so bad they made the bad guy look like the main creature in the movie. The chomping head, the little guys it shoots out, the, um, big ... head... Ok, so maybe it's just me. Shut up.
Anyway, it's also pretty short (80 minutes or so) which ends up being a good thing as it doesn't overstay it's welcome. Tells the story, goes to a quick (and oddly Night of the Living Dead-ish) end, and leaves you wanting more...which I don't think you'll ever get. Almost everyone associated with this movie did this movie and this movie alone, then walked away forever. Which sucks, trust me. But, maybe they learned what countless other movie makers (most on this site) didn't learn; quit while you're a-damn-head!Hide Full Review

So he's 35, and she's 70...right.
Is he shitting on him?
What the hell is that kid watching?
That's the brightest flashlight, ever.
How exactly did he not notice that before???
That is the face of determination.
Yeah, best not to help, makes more sense to wave your hands and yell.
Damn, nice catch.
Run 'n shock!
