A storm causes a Fly Creek, Georgia power line to topple over, electrocuting (and angering) millions of abnormally large earthworms and driving them to the surface.

Appearance

The Carnivorous Earthworms are large reddish-pink earthworms measuring nearly ten inches in length.

Powers and Abilities

The Carnivorous Earthworms possess the following powers and abilities:

  • Sharp teeth
  • Large numbers
  • Ability to burrow into skin

Fate

The power lines are repaired, causing the worms to retreat back into the soil.

Trivia

  • In real life, worms do not have teeth or vertebrate-like jaws.
  • Despite being referred to as "bloodworms", the worms in the film are clearly large earthworms.
