An earthquake releases a strain of mutant cockroaches with the ability to start fires, which proceed to cause destructive chaos in a small town. The studies carried out by scientist James Parmiter, however, reveal an intent with much more far-reaching consequences. Written by

The set used for the Partmiter home, where 'Joanna Miles' 's character has her head set ablaze by a "bug", was the same set at Paramount Studios in Hollywood as the one used for the interior of the Brady home in ABC-TV's The Brady Bunch (1969). Due to very poor ratings, the series had been canceled in 1974, a few months before filming on this film began. Since this film's release in 1975, "The Brady Bunch" became a ubiquitous hit in syndication, and the set has become easily recognizable to several generations of classic TV watchers, even though the set was altered for use in this film.

...but if it were made today, I think it would require a PG-13 rating. I'm squeamish about bugs, which may explain why this movie was so effective for me. In other words, I thought I could feel the damn bugs crawling all over me. I experienced the same sensation in the movie theater a few years back when I saw ARACHNOPHOBIA for the first time. Fans of the genre will not be bored, but DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM WHILE YOU'RE EATING or you may well lose your appetite.
