Name That Trauma :: Reader Amber H. on a Wintry Earwig

Well, I think I was about 7 or 8 and I was watching a Saturday afternoon movie (this would have been ’87 or ’88) and there was a movie about some kind of big, white worm that was crawling around a house… it would crawl into the people’s ears and take over their bodies somehow.

Seems like they were stuck there- because they were snowed in or something?

I just remember seeing the lady sitting in front of a fire, and watching that worm “sneaking” up on her…. totally FREAKED me out, but to this day I can’t remember anything else about the movie or who was in it.

On a side note, it reminds me of the STAR TREK movie where the bad guys put the little creatures in the good guys ears and it made them their slaves…..


Can’t stand it any more!

Could this be They Came From Within (Shivers)? David Cronenberg and Barbara Steele – what could be scarier?
