Hey there all you Creature Feature Freakazoids !! Axemaster's back in the Dungeon tonight with another Moldy Oldie , but still a Goldie for you .... Squirm !! Now before I get started , I'd like to point out that IMDB sort of slams this flick ! I talked to my old Pal Happywax about this one , and we can't figure out why ! This is a classic low budget 1970's Horror flick ! It's what the genre was founded on for gods sake ! Depending on who you talk to , the term Cult Classic comes into play . Anyway , here the story line in a nut shell .............
Mick from New York has the Hots for Geri from Georgia !! (I don't blame him .... Rrrowww !) He's flying down to meet her in her home town of Fly Creek ! (hey it's the 1970's !! He wants some free love !!)
Geri and Mick met at a antique show or some thing , and Geri has convinced Mick , who's an antique dealer , that there are some gems right there down in Fly Creek ! ( namely HER !!)

Squirm , is an enjoyable flick to watch , and I think it's an original sort of tale . There's been nothing quite like it since anyways ! The gore is pretty tame , but there are some good special effects for a "B" movie from the 70's ! Probably due to it being Oscar winning ( An American Werewolf In London ) make up artist Rick Baker's first kick at the can ! The story is campy and creepy , and full of twists and turns . I defend the honor of this low budget flick .
But as alway dear Fright Freaks , I will let you decide . Pop some Corn . Turn out the lights . (preferably on a stormy night ) And take a trip down to Georgia , 1976 . Power lines down . Phones too .
