In the small desert town of Perfection, Nevada, strange occurrences begin to happen when a pair of handymen, Val McKee (Kevin Bacon) and Earl Bassett (Fred Ward), stumble upon the remains of a sheepherder who appears to have been killed in a strange way. As they investigate, they discover that massive, worm-like creatures are living underground and honing in on the vibrations of anything on the surface.
The creatures, which soon become known as Graboids, wreak havoc on the small town, killing and destroying anything in their path. As more and more people fall victim to the Graboids, the townsfolk band together to come up with a plan to defeat the creatures before it's too late.
The group includes the two handymen, seismology student Rhonda LeBeck (Finn Carter), the local survivalist couple Burt and Heather Gummer (Michael Gross and Reba McEntire), and a number of other townspeople. They must use their knowledge of the terrain and the Graboids' weaknesses to outsmart the creatures and save their town.
As the Graboids grow in number and intelligence, the group must race against the clock to stop them before they can kill again. With tension and excitement around every corner, the group risks their lives to protect their home from the dangerous creatures that lurk beneath their feet.
