#72 POLTERGEIST II (1986)
CRAIG T NELSON
SWALLOWS A TEQUILA WORM
Poltergeist II, for the most part, was a worthless piece of crap.
Were it not for the hideous art design of Alien creator HR Giger, it
would have been completely unwatchable. There's a scene where the
father, played by Craig T. Nelson, decides to guzzle what's left of a
tequila bottle. There's a worm at the bottom, and he swallows that,
too. Unfortunately, the house poltergeist decides to possess the
worm, and Nelson ends up vomiting a worm that is about as big as his
own arm. The hellish squirmy thing flops around the floor, grows a
head and small nubs where the arms and legs should be (see above
picture) and flops out of the room with a disturbingly freakish
movement. If one was ever hesitant about swallowing the worm before,
one look at this scene would cure you instantly of such curiosity
once and for all.
