Drive-in Trailers: Creepy Crawlers (Part 1)
“Don’t you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
For you may be the next one to die.
They wrap you up in a big white sheet
From your head down to your feet.
They put you in a big black box
And cover you up with dirt and rocks.
All goes well for about a week,
Until your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your scalp,
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes
Crawls in your stomach and out your sides.
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You’ll spread it on a slice of bread,
And this is what you eat when you are dead.”
That song…for me as an impressionable child…freaked me out. It wasn’t the actual part about rotting, or leaking coffins, or dying….it was the worms. The bugs. I don’t have an innate fear of insects and their ilk, but I can’t help but get a little bit of a shiver when I think about being swarmed by/filled with creepy crawlies. So, in honor of their post as really freaking horrible little monsters…the trailers presented today are all about bugs and arachnids. ENJOY….
I really had no idea there were SO MANY of these movies, it’s a very expansive genre. So I decided to stop here for now, or risk getting into the triple digits territory. There will be another one some time in the future though, so keep an eye out…and some bug spray handy.
