Synopsis
A campy look at the gruesome results of four felons being hired to guard a 40-pound worm with telepathic powers. The felons take the "item" to Rita's apartment, where they discover that it can see into people's hearts and reveal their deepest personal secrets. That night, the felons, Rita and the worm come together and discover what it means to grow a conscience as they ignite a firestorm of truth-telling, aberrant sex and abundant blood-letting.
