The Carnivorous Earthworms are the main antagonists of the 1976 American horror film Squirm.
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.
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
The power lines are repaired, causing the worms to retreat back into the soil.
- 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.
