Movie Summary

Director:
Ron Underwood
Released:
1990
Rating:
PG-13

After town handymen Val and Earl find a body on top of an electrical tower, it is discovered that the man died from dehydration. Soon after, they find the mangled body of a shepherd and his flock, which lead them to believe a maniac is on the loose. They soon find that the town is infected by man-eating creatures they label "graboids." After a rock slide, which traps the inhabitants in town, they are forced to fend off the flesh-hungry creatures. The townsfolk aren't particularly bright, so their attempts to ward off the creatures are hilarious.
