The best worm sex death scene in the galaxy [NSFW]

To celebrate the recent release of Roger Corman classic Galaxy of Terror on DVD, we bring you this io9 flashback . . . to one of the weirdest things you'll ever see.

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]
