I went with SQUIRM.  I thought GRIZZLY was sort of dull and seemed like a glorified TV movie of the week.  But what can you expect from a movie directed by William Girdler?  SQUIRM is certainly not a classic, but ya gotta love the worm-face scenes.

Ooooh, tough one. I almost want to vote for Grizzly merely for the hilarious overkill method used to kill the bear, but "Squirm" has "Mister Beeeeeeardsley!" and worm-faces, so it gets the nod.

Any movie filmed in the Secoya national park automatically loses. That would be Grizzly

I haven't seen Grizzly so I went with Squirm. Like RC said, the shower scene is killer. Jeff Lieberman ROCKS! Anybody dig Blue Sunshine?

Tough to say.. Grizzly has more gore, for sure.  I might go with that one.  Squirm definitely feeds the "dumb redneck" stereotype, providing probably unintentional hilarity.  Grizzly is slow in spots though.. but, it has Christopher George! :)
