The Mongolian Death Worm is a creature of cryptozoology purported as being a bright red worm up to five feet long capable of spewing sulphuric acid and emitting a paralyzing electric discharge. One look at the sneak preview Syfy has posted for its new Mongolian Death Worm movie indicates the filmmakers just watched the bug ravine scene from Peter Jackson’s King Kong remake and made a movie about those giant head-devouring worms instead.
When an American oil company sets up an experimental drilling plant out in the vast deserts of Mongolia, they awaken a nest. The deadly creatures begin to breed and spread, devouring everyone in their path. The only person who can stop them is a treasure hunter and adventure seeker who spent his life searching for a legendary tomb, fabled to be protected by the Death Worms. He knows he must do what he can to kill the creatures, but stopping these monsters may mean destroying his life’s work forever!
Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints) and Victoria Pratt (“Mutant X”) star. Steven R. Monroe (Sasquatch Mountain, Ogre) directs. Mongolian Death Worm premieres on Syfy Saturday, May 8, at 9/8 Central. The clip below clearly indicates the appearance of multiple worms, which begs the question: Why isn’t the title plural?
Another question: Why doesn’t the guy in the video just shoot the one bad guy standing out in the open during the shootout?
