A germ warfare lab has had an accident. The first theory is that one of the nasty germs has gotten free and killed several scientists. The big fear is that a more virulent strain, named The Satan Bug because all life can be killed off by it should it escape, may have been stolen. Written by

Taut thriller, 60's style, that reminds us of another way that the world might end
THE SATAN BUG is a very competent treatment of a CBW (chemical and biological warfare) nightmare scenario: Somebody steals from a Defense fortress a flask of the deadliest bugs ever developed. George Maharis is there to try to track down the baddies, as is Anne "Forbidden Planet" Francis. And prime psycho villain? Richard "Commander Nelson" Basehart! His paranoid stooge? Ed Asner! Dana Andrews is chief spook presiding over a scenario that features the end of the world accomplished not by atoms, but by microbes. For its time a very alarming and fast paced thriller.
