PROJECT SYNOPSIS

“Squirm” is a short horror/gore film about Jay Popper, a middle aged man battling obesity. One evening after a particularly indulgent meal, Jay discovers something disgusting growing on his neck. Unknown to Jay, his wife Molly Popper, has given him a tapeworm in an attempt to help him shed the pounds. Unfortunately for Jay, this worm is really hungry.
