Scream Factory Announces a Blu-ray Title Guaranteed to Make You SquirmDepending on whom you ask, either the 1976 man-eating worms flick Squirm is an underrated horror gem or a great example of a “so bad it’s good” flick. Scream Factory will give you a chance to decide for yourself on Blu-ray this October.

Today was another one of those days that Scream Factory decided to throw out a surprise announcement on their Facebook page. This time it was the unexpected news a Polyester era nature gone amok camp classic that even “Mystery Science Theater 3000” has dug their hooks into is getting some hi-def Blu-ray love.

Here’s the Scream Factory announcement:

The worms crawl in and out this October when we release the 1976 nature-gone-berserk classic SQUIRM to Blu-ray for the first time in U.S. and Canada!

No details or extras yet but this will be in our “Collector’s Edition” series and new artwork will be revealed soon. Expect exact street date and pre-order links to go up sometime next month.

So there you have it. A Collector’s Edition of Jeff Lieberman’s Squirm on Blu-ray this October. You know what this means?

“Now you gonna be the worm face?”

    Probably the only horror film I’ve never been able to fully watch… too much vermiphobia.

  • MonsterMash

    This movie is slower than worms and will make you squirm around the hour mark when you realize nothing has happened.

    • GODFLESH69

      I’m guessing that you weren’t around when this came out?It’s a great old horror flick that actually inspired some that followed. I could probably school you when it comes to horror but I respect all opinions,even when they are wrong!

        Though I agree it’s a good movie, let’s not start a horror pissing contest. Monstermash is nothing but cool and the movie is admittedly slow in the beginning.

        I’ve seen this one rated R and PG. Anyone know what that’s about?

      • MonsterMash

        I’m willing to bet none of us on this website were at the premiere of Frankenstein, and everyone loves that movie so that’s irrelevant. Anyways if I do rewatch this one and find I really enjoy it i’ll probably write something about it.

        • GODFLESH69

          No probs this is not for everyone I guess. It holds a special place in my blackened heart since it’s one of the first horror flicks i remember seeing as a kid.I haven’t seen this in decades so i need to go back & reminisce and see if it holds up.


    funny I just mentioned SQUIRM in another post the other day about fave bug horror flicks. I saw this in theater when i was freakin 5 so yeah I was nursed on Horror from a young age . I need to watch this again it’s been a long time.

    YESSS!!! Oh, how I love love LOVE this flick!
