Here’s a slimy treat for cinephiles: A definitive supercut of all the most important cinematic worms, ranked by size. The Atlas Obscura video features an array of sci-fi and horror classics, and zeros in on crawlers from the friendly worm in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth (1986) to the immense Exogorth in The Empire Strikes Back (1980). It's perfect for anyone planning a themed movie marathon, or interested in observing some neat visual effects—some of the worms are adorable puppets, while others, like the train-sized monster in Men in Black II (2002), are the product of pretty impressive CGI. Check out the slippery, slimy montage below:
