However, they happen upon a series of mysterious deaths and a concerned seismologist Rhonda studying unnatural readings below the ground. With the help of eccentric survivalist couple Burt and Heather Gummer, the group fights for survival against giant, wormlike monsters hungry for human flesh. The group is led by Val, Earl, and Rhonda LeBeck, a graduate student conducting seismology tests in the area, stumbles onto the scene; she deduces from previous readings that there are three other worms in the region.
Val and Earl try to find help after warning the residents but find the phone lines are dead and that the rock slide has blocked the only road out of town. They come upon Wallace and his wife’s buried station wagon near their trailer, but the couple is missing. As they press on, an enormous burrowing wormlike monster suddenly erupts out of the ground, revealing the snakelike creature to be one of its many tentacled \”tongues\”. Thrown from their horses, the men flee with the monster in pursuit. After the three return to town, the worms attack and kill general store owner Walter Chang, forcing everyone to hide on the town’s various rooftops. The last one spits a bomb towards the survivors, forcing them to disperse as the worms disperse. Val lures the remaining worm into the edge of a cliff and explodes the remaining bomb behind it, charging through the cliff face where it charges into the face of a frighteningly frightening face. The survivors must then flee to some nearby boulders for safety. Val commandeers a track loader and a semi-trailer to try to track the survivors to a nearby mountain range, and both worms create a sinkhole that disables the track loader, and the final worm chasing him to the edge.
