    Item, The (1999)
"Item, The" Boxart
Synopsis:

Warning! The cover, box, and tagline have nothing to do with the movie. Well, except the title, but even then it's stretching.
Anyway, what we have here is four life-long friends and criminal partners that get hired to go out to the desert and receive a package. They meet up with a Dr. Ody, who gives them the box and shows them what's inside: a strange wormy thing that's on life support. Dr. Ody starts to change his mind about the deal and gets blown away.
The team goes to a friend of Alex's, an art student by the name of Rita. They intend to just hang out until the person that "ordered" the worm arrives.
However, the thing wakes up. They clean it up like Dr. Ody told them to as it looks around the room (despite it's eyes being sewn shut). They put it in a little wastebasket and let Fatty watch over it. Everything is going fine, until it starts to talk...
