Valentine Mckee and Earl Bassett, small-town handymen living in a small desert community, stumble upon several strange phenomena, including a couple of people who’ve died under unexplained circumstances. Eventually, they and their neighbours find the cause… it’s gigantic prehistoric worm-like creatures that streak under the desert the way fish swim through oceans, reaching up and grabbing anything they need for food. Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward and Finn Carter are in the lead roles.
