A couple of luckless dreamers leave the small town of Perfection and cross the desert in search of odd jobs. Instead of a pot of gold, they find worms... humungous man-eating worms that tunnel underground and eat everything in sight, from men to automobiles. With quick thinking -- and a conveniently placed cement wall -- the duo outwit the hungry sand beasts. Back home they brag of their escape to the weird collection of townsfolk. A seismologist who just happens to be studying the area tells them there are lots more of the creatures hanging around. And, like everybody else, the worms are aiming for Perfection...
The race to higher ground is on when two handymen and a local seismology student discover that their little town of Perfection, Nevada is infested with stinky subterranean man-eating worms. A very well-done comedy-horror film that salutes a host of horror films from bygone years.
