Plot hole: Not far into the movie, Starla decides to check out the basement to see what Grant's been up to. As soon as the door is opened she reels from the stench and we discover that it's full of rotting meat and dead animals. In reality, the whole house would have smelt like an abattoir for days before hand and the stench would have permeated out into the neighbourhood. A non-airtight wooden door would not have kept that kind of smell located to the basement only.
Trivia: Right after the huge out break of worms the mother tells the two girls to go to bed. Well look at the books the two girls are reading.The books "The Girl Who Cried Monster" and "You Can't Scare Me" from the Goosebump's series. This is trivia because one of the books talks about a man doing weird things with slug like creatures.
