Starla, his wife, and Bill, a policeman, will try to stop him and the plague of worms generated by the creature. Written by Alejandro Frias

Creepy horror movie giving a paranoid dimension when frightening creatures stalking and attacking
25 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

The movie begins when a meteorite collides in a rural community. Grant(Michael Rooker), married to Starla(Elizabeth Banks) encounters the meteorite and is infected by a parasite and originate him a horrible turning into a creepy monster with tentacles over his chest. People are dying gruesomely ad mysteriously, the body count starts to rise and anybody has a clue what the cause is. A foul-mouthed Mayor named Jack(Gregg Henry),and the local patrolman named Bill(Nathan Fillion) are investigating the weird events.

The picture packs mystery, shocks, grisly horror, but also tongue in check and black humor. The movie displays hair rising and horrifying images with lots of blood and graphical gore. This is an entertaining juvenile , quite remarkable for recreation of the carnivorous and ferocious worms developing a spooky and bloodthirsty hunger. Delivers a sympathetic homage about fifties movies and a B-film tribute. For that reason, the picture take parts from ¨Dawn of the dead(George A Romero)¨, Slugs(Juan Piquer),Society(Brian Yuzna), and The Blob(Chuck Russell), among others. Besides special appearance uncredited by Rob Zombie and Lloyd Kauffman, the famous producer and director of Troma productions, usual artificers of this type movies. The motion picture is professionally directed by James Gunn, he's usually writer(Dawn of the dead, Scooby Doo,1 and 2) and occasionally director for Troma productions . No for small kids by violent, realistic and gory attack scenes.
