The Best Worm Sex Death Scene in the Galaxy [NSFW]

This scene from 1981 Z-movie Galaxy of Terror will destroy your moral center and make you see giant worms in a whole new light. You've got your classic scifi horror plot where a ship crash-lands on a planet answering a distress call . . . and discovers an alien thingamabob that manifests their greatest fears! One of the crew, whose main characteristic is hotness, is really really scared of maggots. And so of course, she meets a giant maggot. Who eats her . . . in a number of ways. Don't say I didn't warn you about this one, kids. Aside from being one of the perviest, cheesiest flicks I've ever seen, Galaxy of Terror is packed with groovy B-list actors like Erin Moran (Joanie from Happy Days), a peppy, cute pre-Nightmare on Elm Street Robert Englund, bad guy Ray Walston (Mr. Hand from Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and a seriously tough captain played by Grace Zabriskie (the crazy mom from Big Love). And it even has a great, pseudo-philosophical ending with Xanadu-style effects. [Galaxy of Terror via IMDB]

I, too was exposed to that film at a young age, but it was only a bit of that very scene. Maybe in a preview or as part of a half-erased tape, I don't remember. Now I'm not sure I really wanted to know. Can I put that image behind me, or will I at some point have to see the full thing now to finally exorcise it? Truly, a grain of knowledge can change the world you know.
